Society doesn’t value the domesticity of a parent. No one is going to clap me on the back over lunch for my accomplishments.
Unfortunately, I don't have a solution for this gentleman - his inevitable financial woes or his apparent heart ache. And I think that's really because his entire life-arrangement was built on a trust which was founded in love.

In answer to the question, no women do not better parents than men. There are, of course, bad dads in the world and there are also bad mothers.

I admit, I miss the income I once had. I would like to make a greater contribution to the household budget. This, however, is partly down to the age of our children. Our youngest daughter starts school next year and I see light at the end of the tunnel. Until that time, I am quite happy with how things are. My wife is free to concentrate on her career while I have taken on the main responsibility for looking after the children.
