Would that we all did. Of all the soi-disant progressive people (some of
them where both the man and the woman are fairly well paid) that I know, I
can only think of ONE couple with a "stay-at-home dad", and don't know of
ANY where there is a childless "househusband". I must not be living

You just don't run with the right crowd, Watson. Or live in the right neighborhood. (Or ask enough nosy personal questions <g>.)

I know many couples in both categories---both childless househusbands and couples who discovered that the husband enjoys being an extremely patient and creative child-raiser. Most of them, I discovered by accident. They don't publicize their non-traditional lifestyle much, and are reluctant to mention it at all unless somebody else 'confesses' first.

Choice is a wonderful thing, and I'm glad that my generation's barricade storming helped create choices for the youngsters. Yes, even when they choose a lifestyle that I would never choose for myself. That IS the whole point, after all.
