For Better or For Worse (9/11/09)

09-11-09 (For Better or for Worse)

Chauvinism aside, the thing that makes this strip feel dated to me is the notion that anyone (woman or man) would be able to stay home with the kids and not earn at least some income. With the cost of housing, food, gas and all types of insurance going up, the great majority of families simply can’t afford to live on one salary. I suppose a successful dentist would be able to knock out the bills on his own, but judging by the four full-time day care facilities within walking distance of my apartment, not too many others are in a position to do the same.
