Go tell your woman to get back in the kitchen.
wow, great argument.
Didn't think you really deserved an argument back, since this isn't the 1950's anymore, but since you asked...
My parents both worked full-time. They raised 3 children who all have advanced degrees. Both of my sisters and their husbands work full time, and they have children who do EXTREMELY well in all facets of their lives.
And I don't see why pre-K/nursery school is a bad thing. Made me interested in learning. They had me reading when I was 3 years old, along with my parents, who also had me counting to 10 in 4 different languages at the dinner table when I wouldn't eat.
How a child is raised has NOTHING to do with both parents working, but with the caliber of those people who decide to have children. I agree with you on your point of not having kids if you plan to SEND THEM OFF i.e. boarding school, but I think your argument that having a two-income household being an irresponsible situation for a child to be completely unjustified, and stupid, quite frankly.
So until you realize that we've moved past the time where one parent always has to stay at home, regardless of if you agree that it's no longer the woman that must be that stay at home person, since you look like you're aiming to be the breadwinner, you better tell that woman of yours to remember her place, cook you some goddamn dinner, and raise those kids.
