Q: Should the man in a marriage be the soul bread winner?
A: Many women would think that would be nice but other women would say, “no, I want to be working.” The reality is, in today’s world, over 50% of the wives work outside of the home at a paying job. There is certainly nothing wrong with that. It’s a totally different culture today in terms of how we get money and make money. But I do think the husband has the primary responsibility and the reason I say that is the wife is the one who bears the children. In the process of bearing children, there’s going to be a period of time when she will not be able to work. So the question is: What does the wife’s working outside the home mean to the marriage and family? If it’s detrimental, I suggest not doing it. If it’s helpful, I suggest it’s fine to do it.
