I ask because I have a very good friend who has said that he wouldn't tolerate a housewife. He's a Harvard grad (twice-over), makes in the high six-figures and is still a very young guy, lives in Manhattan... maybe being in a hyper competitive atmosphere for the last 10 years has something to do with this. I guess a nanny will be raising his kids! Maybe he'll change his mind (or have it changed for him) when he gets married. And no, Mother, I will not be marrying him.
