Forbes magazine has caused quite a bit of upset over an article giving men the advice: 'Don't Marry a Career Woman'. Rush was laughing about it on Wednesday and Naomi Wolfe was sputtering about it on the Today Show. Forbes has responded by posting a 'Counterpoint' article bashing 'lazy men'. Still, Michael Nor--the original article's author--makes some interesting points:
Why? Because if many social scientists are to be believed, you run a higher risk of having a rocky marriage. While everyone knows that marriage can be stressful, recent studies have found professional women are more likely to get divorced, more likely to cheat, less likely to have children, and, if they do have kids, they are more likely to be unhappy about it. A recent study in Social Forces, a research journal, found that women--even those with a "feminist" outlook--are happier when their husband is the primary breadwinner.

Obviously crazy talk like that needs to be silenced. Next people will start saying that God has a design for marriage, and that marriage works better when it's followed. Nah--I don't guess anybody would go that far...
