I Need a Wife Too

The New York Times [1] took its “Personal Business” section really personally when it recently ran a piece about how some working moms really wish they had a wife to help them take care of all things domestic. “Working women, whether married or single . . . see their lack of devoted spousal support as an impediment to getting ahead in their careers, especially when they are competing against men who have wives behind them, whether those wives are working or staying at home,” wrote Shira Boss. “And research supports their argument: it appears that marriage, at least marriage with children, bolster’s a man’s career but hinders a woman’s.” (August 2007)
