For me it's an obsolete cultural practice that has its roots in changing ownership from Father to husband. It had no relevance to my modern relationship and wasn't something I ever considered.

Would you be disappointed if your DD chose to be at home long term?
LoveLivesHere you know I adore you and your life and you are one of the reasons I come back to BH. I feel this is such a loaded topic as feeling "disappointment" in someone else's lifestyle choice carries with in an inherent judgment and no one likes being judged.
I'm really sorry your family is facing this. I would only say these days most good employers offer flexibly for their employees in cases like yours. We were told DD2 would need hip surgery just before I returned from maternity leave and my employer automatically offered to extend my leave for 6, 9 or 12 months. Whatever I wanted. Or that I could work from home or reduce my days
I know not everyone has that but as I had worked hard and was good at my job they were prepared to do this.
