You know, just because no one wants you because you`re so unpleasant doesn`t mean that you have to rag on the girls that actually can get a guy to love them.

Cindy, maybe you should read my entire post before responding. You'd see that I NEVER suggested that I thought anyone was asking for this pay. And yes, I DID read the entire thread and I DO realize that no rational person would ask for this pay.

Being a father who contributes to AT LEAST 50% of the cooking, cleaning, entertaining, advice dispensing, bathing, boo-boo kissing, bedtime story reading, etc. in our house, in addition to working 40-50 hours a week at my "regular" job, I know that the rewards of parenthood are intangible and no real dollar value can be placed on this rewarding experience. Yet it never fails that some group or another comes out with one of these "studies" every year.

The TONGUE-IN-CHEEK point I was trying to make was that I have never seen any of these studies put a dollar value on the physical support stay-at-home moms get from whomever is out working elsewhere 8-12 hours a day to allow them the ability to stay at home.

wc444, why not make it your last as well? At least read the entire thread before posting. You'd see that it`s well known that no one is asking for this pay.

Ike Ray:
"then explain how i have a kid when we used both a condom AND she was on birth control?

and it is harder for stay-at-home dads than for stay-at-home moms"

1) Either you two suffered a major contraceptive malfunction or she lied about the pill.

2)It is absolutely harder for stay-at-home dad. Men are taught their whole lives to ignore and supress their emotions, so they are not as adept as women at handling emotionally charged situations (such as jr. saying "I hate you!" for the first time). But I have met some outstanding Daddy-Moms in my time, and I think it's wonderful to see fathers making more of a connection with their kids these days.
