I am just curious about thoughts on this. I don't believe it would work. Though I believe that there is no right or wrong way when it comes to working or not I just don't think the modern world could function with only men and childless women working. What do you think?

My family would not and could not survive without my career so I don't think it could work either.... we would have to revert back to the 50's to have that kind of life. I would love to do it, everything was more simple, people lived within their means and values were still important, we can't go back but wouldn't it be great if we could.

I am a HUGE advocate for a parent staying home with the child... but I dont think it HAS to be the mother. I think we would have a WONDERFUL society if we could have A parent, either one, home with the child(ren).

Well, we'd all be on PA!
No, we would not ALL be on PA. There are plenty of us who survive just fine on one income and don't depend on PA. I think people might stop living outside their means so much. When we chose to be a one income family we chose to live more frugally. It's not really that hard.
