YES! It really isn’t about wanting HIS $. It is about equality and balance. Hell, women take the parenting hits when applying for a job because I don’t know a guy one who was ever asked, “How is this job going to interfere with how you manage your household?” or “Are you planning on having kids?” You hear this in interviews with famous actors/actresses all the time. They’ll address the woman’s appearance and question how her work impacts her home life, but never do you hear an interviewer be critical about how the actor’s work in deminishing him as a father. It’s just expected he won’t be around as often as women are still typecast to be young, pretty mothers who are better suited to be home-bound childcare.
