Re: Are we stuck in the 1950's???
I didn't find it overtly offensive. I guess I just feel secure enough in my relationship that I can spend the 6 weeks after birth worrying about me and the newbie and not him. If not making him number one for six weeks caused serious damage to our marriage I would feel our problems were running deeper than anything on that list would fix...
ETA BUT if a wife was feeling disconnected and wanted to do something about it, I don't think there's anything wrong with looking for ideas like that list provides.
And yes, I recognize the irony that the very system I oppose affords me the luxury of biting the hand that feeds. But that's exactly why privileged folks like me should feel obliged to whine and kick and scream- until everyone has everything they need.
