Re SAHMs and WOHMs: Debating who "works hardest" is rather beside the point. There's more to life than frenetic activity, and she who runs herself into the ground first does not win. In fact, it's not a contest at all.
That last line, "it's not a contest," is one of husband's favorites. Along those lines, here are four tweets from said husband (@campion1581). He doesn't say much, but when he does it's gold:
The value of a mother raising her children is not fundamentally economic, any more than the mother/child relationship is economic.I married way up. :)
And the worth of the SAHM does not depend on how hard she has 2 work. To argue this way concedes to the materialistic terms of the feminist.
It could be the easiest thing in the world and it would still be infinitely more valuable than, say, being an RIAA lobbyist.
Motherhood is not a "job." A child is not a product. A home is not a factory.
