Now is the time to start preparing for a new/better job

We’d like to believe that when it comes to life, work, and family that men and women have reached something nearing equality. Not so. According to the Pew Research Center, in 2012, 84% of stay-at-home parents were women. Likewise, women are far more likely not to work or to work part-time than men even if the couple doesn’t have children. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a woman choosing not to work in order to raise her children or to pursue other passions, except when she and her husband get divorced.
