What Happens When Mom Becomes The Breadwinner


Today Good Morning America featured a couple whose roles reversed when Rick got laid off, forcing his wife Eleanor to work more. Rick found that he likes being “Mr. Mom,” but Eleanor doesn’t respect him.

Rick likes that he can be there for their 7-year-old daughter, but Eleanor says, “I don’t like coming home and seeing him in my apron.” Eleanor says she doesn’t know if she can learn to respect her husband if he can’t find a job because, “that’s one of the basic things that little girls grow up thinking, that the man is going to put a roof over her head he’s going to support the family.” Clip at left.
