Two families in which the mom is a family’s primary breadwinner, including attorney Erin Wetty’s family, are featured in this CNNMoney video. There is no stay-at-home mom in Wetty’s house; instead the father serves as the child’s primary caregiver. This setup is being seen in increasing numbers due partly to the mancession but also because 38 percent of married working women are out-earning their spouses. If this trend continues, by 2030 the majority of married working women will earn more than their spouses.
