Is it a waste for well-educated women to be housewives?

Caring for your children by staying at home with them, or following a career...or maybe both if the work involves internet work from home, or running a business from home...all are lifestyle choices. Often choices are restricted by money or by the expectations of others. As for "stay-at-home fathers", this has been a growing situation in England for many years. Sometimes this is a choice made because today a woman can earn far more than her partner. Sometimes it is because the man is considered a better option to be the "House-husband". In China there is the stigma of men doing women's jobs. Maybe in time the situation will change and enable such lifestyle decisions.
