Bollocks.

With all due respect.

I suppose it depends on the job, but some of us work a 50 hour week and are expected to chip in when we get home.

Family income has nothing to do with it, at least in my case.

It's the independence, the financial security and more importantly it helps take the pressure off work for both as we're not solely dependent on the job (i.e. we can choose to walk out anytime and not have to worry about the consequences/finances - this is a big plus).
