SAHDs feel guilty for not being in the work force and providing the income and doing what society feels men are supposed to be doing in a family?
Do they truly feel personally guilty or is it more of a pressure that society puts on them?

My cousin is a SAHD. Not by choice. He came over one day just for some adult conversation. He has been laid off for a good year now. He is one of those who is desperately trying to find a job. Until then he is SAHD. He feels very inadequate as a man. His words. He feels he is failing his family. We were raised very old fashioned. The men worked and the women stay home. He is struggling hard with his situation. He broke down and apologized for eve making fun of me for being a SAHM.
I know not all SAHD feel this way. I am just giving his point of view. He still has not found work. The jobs are scarce here. There are even no jobs at out McDonald's. A very good friend of mine manages our local one and she is going to call him with the first opening. She has not hired in 6 months. Nobody will give up any job they have here for fear of not finding another.
