I linked to Dennis Prager on this question earlier, here.
Now with a different view on a similar theme from the UK, a study suggests women aren’t as interested in financial independence as we may think:
The report concluded that equal roles in the family, where husband and wife shared employment, childcare and housework, was ‘not the ideal sought by most couples’.
Dr Hakim added: ‘It is thus not surprising that wives generally earn less than their husbands, and that most couples rationally decide that it makes sense for her to take on the larger share of child care, and to use most or all the parental leave allowance.’
…The study comes after a series of measures announced by the Coalition intended to decrease the pay difference between women and men.
Since we hear about the “gender wage gap” here in Canada often enough, it’s wise to be savvy to why such a gap exists and the extent to which it simply reflects women’s desires.by
