These postings are extremely interesting. So if a lot of the men are agreeing with Michael Noer, what do you think of the men who are the stay at home dads married to career women? What do some of your women think about this?

My boyfriend has said he’s willing to be a stay-at-home dad if I’m making more money than he is at that point. I have more education, so that’s likely. I’m hoping at that point to do a job where I’m working out of the home about 20 hours a week and doing paperwork from my home office. If he’s willing to stay home with the kids while I’m gone, I think that’s great. May not work for everyone, but you do what you’ve gotta do.

You’ll get far more accurate information by reviewing the dating websites.

Look for single women who claim they are indepent yet have healthy salary requirements for their potential dates/partners.

It’s a lovely hypocrisy.

“So if a lot of the men are agreeing with Michael Noer…

If you spent some time reading some of the threads you’d see that such a simple statement doesn’t convey much truth. It would be difficult to find anyone here who’s saying “I agree w/Noer. Period.”. Most would say he’s only getting at one aspect of a much bigger situation, one which is more complex than simply saying men shouldn’t marry career women. A lot of us think men shouldn’t marry any woman under the current circumstances.

…what do you think of the men who are the stay at home dads married to career women?.

I think their numbers are very small, considering we’ve had forty years of this supposed equality business. There’s a feminist myth out there that there are zillions of women wanting to make their guy into a house-hubby, but that recalcitrant unevolved guys aren’t having any part of the program. The truth is actually just about the opposite: plenty of men would like out of the rat-race, but women earn money more to be independent of men than to be sole bread-winners supporting men and their families. That’s my take.

You should track down Glenn Sacks since he is a SAHD and has talked/written about it with many more people than I have (and is one hell-of-a-guy – tell him I sent you). In fact, come to think of it, I don’t believe I’ve ever known even one SAHD outside of cyber-space. That’s how small their numbers are. For that matter, I’ve never run into a guy who had the opportunity to be a SAHD and turned it down because he thought it wasn’t manly or something. Men just don’t have such choices because women aren’t offering in significant numbers. Again, threads exist which have covered this topic from different angles in some detail.

What do some of your women think about this?”

Sorry, I’m fresh out of women at this point.
Again, read some threads.

You do not get it do you ? Career women are outraged that career men are avoiding them. That a woman with an higher income and higher education will pick a man with a lower income and lower education is very very unlikely. Instead they run around crying that there are no good men left. Besides if a man decides to stay at home in the event of a divorce he still looses the house and the kids and gets slapped with child support and alimony based on his imputed income, which means he will get literally @ss raped in jail if he does not find a job in time to pay what he is due. Gettin married is dump, getting married and beeing a stay at home dad is extra dump considered the current divorce laws and hysteria.
See that is why most men do not get married, however they play it they loose. Beeing married for a man even if everything is fine means living under the sword of damocles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damocles
Why should I want that if I see absolutly NO reward in it for me ? On top of everything you are trying to convince us to seal a deal with absolutly no reward whatsoever.

Since women make more money than men, gals run to the lokal sperm bank so we men can stay singel in peace without having to worry about repoduction rates.
There is only one plausibel explanation for men marrying todays powerdivorcewomen. Idiocy.

I think his wife is about to “get bored” and file for no fault divorce based on exactly that reason.

Men have standards. Women will be compared. DEAL WITH IT.

What man wouldn’t want to stay home, you can be on the golf course by 9:30 and in the club house by 2:00 p.m. for a beer.

Rough life! Why did women ever want to leave it, is beyond me!

Women have been proving for the last 30 years that men have been right for the last 30 centuries!

Shh.. that’s the dirty little secret of SAHM’s. Although scorned by career women they’re livin’ and lovin’ life raising the family.

What I think about the stay-at-home-men/fathers, by Diogetrix.

ha ha aha ha

But, seriously …

It rather depends on several factors – doesn’t it? I mean, since most of the men I’ve been reading here have very complex minds, it follows that most of them (and I) won’t have a simplistic view on a complex matter. So, let’s start with the various complicating factors:

First, we have to accept that we don’t really ever know the dynamics and feelings of the people we’re observing, and second, we have to be aware that we are subjective in our analyses no matter how much we strive for neutrality. That said, I’d like to subcatagorize the appearance of the familiy units that have male homemakers.

First, there are those who are exhibiting “intense pseudo-mutuality” (thanks to R.D. Lainge for that term.) You know the ones: They seem so self assured, and whenever they are together any comment or behavior by one is mirrored, approved, or continued by the other. But, the slightly forced smiles just seem to insist that some day, some fateful day, those two are gonna have a really big fight.

Then, there is a variation on pseudo-mutality in which one partner is visibly observing the other with an over critical scowl. Usually it’s the fem who is doing this, and when the male makes some pre-feminist faux pas the intensity of the scowl rises and the male shrinks. Usually, he is too cowed to cover his error with talk, so he falls silent.

The ones that I like best are the efflusive and jolly modern couple, who make a show of their perfect adjustment to the whole constellation of the current social chic.

Then, there are the appologists: They know that people are going to ask about their living arrangement, and lacking a brash and confident facade, they introduce themselves with deprecating self conscious excuses for their lifestyle.

And, so on. The problem as I see it is that no couple can do what they want without other people messing with them. In the past, of course, it was any deviation from the “traditional” marriage that was attacked – and attacked with heavy and sometimes fatal intensity; now it is the “traditional” marriage or living arangement that is attacked. Who is doing it? Here’s a word from the twentieth century’s most prophetic author (in my opinion):

He did not know her name, but he knew that she worked in the Fiction Department. Presumably — since he had sometimes seen her with oily hands and carrying a spanner she had some mechanical job on one of the novel-writing machines. She was a bold-looking girl, of about twenty-seven, with thick hair, a freckled face, and swift, athletic movements. A narrow scarlet sash, emblem of the Junior Anti-Sex League, was wound several times round the waist of her overalls, just tightly enough to bring out the shapeliness of her hips. Winston had disliked her from the very first moment of seeing her. He knew the reason. It was because of the atmosphere of hockey-fields and cold baths and community hikes and general clean-mindedness which she managed to carry about with her. He disliked nearly all women, and especially the young and pretty ones. It was always the women, and above all the young ones, who were the most bigoted adherents of the Party, the swallowers of slogans, the amateur spies and nosers-out of unorthodoxy. But this particular girl gave him the impression of being more dangerous than most. Once when they passed in the corridor she gave him a quick sidelong glance which seemed to pierce right into him and for a moment had filled him with black terror. The idea had even crossed his mind that she might be an agent of the Thought Police.
