“Is the societal shift toward women as the primary wage earner and men as “house husbands” a good thing or a bad thing?”
Here is their response:
3 Percent “Good Thing”
89 Percent “Bad Thing”
8 Percent “Doesn’t Matter”

Our reader’s opinions seem to line up with that way of thinking and, by the way, so does the research.
