This is a cool idea. I sat through yet another "the family is under attack" lesson this week. I think most of the women around me live lower on the economic food chain than the people portrayed in the NY Times article, and I suspect that's part of what makes their families strong.
I wonder if we would, as a people, create stronger families if we actually lived well below our means and donated the rest to charity. We're encouraged to live below our means by tithing; I wonder if that feeds into less divorce?
