Choosing a husband

This posting should be paired with the posting below on Parenting Girls. Here we have some parenting advice that might actually do some good. It is a blog post by Penelope Trunk (via Instapundit) about how imperative it is to be clear eyed in How to pick a husband if you want to have kids. It pretty well leaves any notions of love and romance out of the picture and instead offers some practical advice for young girls entering the mating game. Here is the opening para; the rest follows directly from the initial premise:

You cannot pick a husband to have kids with until you know if you want to work full-time while you are raising them. Some women will say they know for sure that they do want to work full-time. Most women will say that they don’t know for sure. But there are actually only two choices: be a breadwinner or marry a breadwinner. Then, within those two choices, there are a few strategies you could use.

The advice is sound and sensible and after you’ve read that, you could go onto why divorce is immature and selfish and should not be done.
