    Does your spouse think you have it easier because you are a stay at home mom/dad?  Do you think that your spouse has it easier because they work outside the home?

    If it is a mutual arrangement you are happy with, it doesn't matter which partner stays home, as long as they share all responsibilities.  The arrangement won't work if, because the wife makes more money and the husband stays home for the children, he also believes housework is a woman's job.  She is supposed to bring home the bacon and COOK it too? 
    Neither one has the easier job.  Housework, and minding the children, is a great responsibility.  As is going to work each day and holding the job.  Both partners should support each other. This means the one with the job does help with the house chores so they are both free to spend time with each other at the end of the day.  This won't happen if the wage earner comes home and expects to be served hand and foot, watches TV or plays computer games while the stay-at-home partner is left to do all the work and the clean up till the minute before bed, is worn out and resentful and in no mood for being loving.
