Sometimes there really is something new under the sun. I know two young couples with both members highly educated who have deliberately opted for what would normally be considered reversed roles.
Both of the fellas are highly qualified, but have trouble obtaining work in their field, especially in the very scenic rural locales that they desire. On the other hand, the gals ride to the rescue with their woman based affirmative action jobs in the same scenic rural locales. So we have the women with full time jobs, future pension, etc., while the guys get by typically on seasonal work (sometimes having to go elsewhere for even that).
This situation is acknowledged by all; furthermore they are all seemingly comfortable with it. I do know that in generations past, this type of situation would have been considered to be odd. I wonder if it still is considered to be odd. What do you think?
