It's a difficult choice.

I would say that A parent raising the child would be optimal but there is no inherent reason it has to be the female. Other than historical feels there is really no reason for us to assume it should be the females role. There are even cases of tribal cultures that show male domestic roles can be equally effective.

Yes I suppose so. If my partner did earn more than myself she could work and I could stay. Having said that our maternity rights severely trump paternity.

I think it should be an individual choice. Some mothers feel the need to work, whether it is financial, social, career protecting, mind stimulating or any other factor. Some parents would say that financially they have little choice. Having one parent at home may be ideal, but that could be Dad or a combination of both. Paternity rights have vastly improved over the last few years, if both parents are full time employees. One size does not fit all but I do believe there are more options for people now and that helps with choice.

No, not really. I believe that it feels more "natural" this way than having childcare raising your family. I feel that once the child say, starts school, the mother could return to work.

Could you narrow this down any, or, is this like the hypothetical "if I were king of the castle" kind of thing? I think I could probably respond to the later, but, it would help me if you could point out the breadth or specific culture in which you reside.
