  1. Probably the biggest decision was made 16 and half years ago when my husband and I decided to move from Los Angeles to Columbia, SC. At the time our children were very young – 5, 3 ½ and 10 months. The impetus for the decision was a corporate job transfer for me. The move meant that my husband would leave his free-lance career as a film editor and become a stay at home dad in SC while I took on greater career responsibilities. We made the decision based on a number of factors that included emotional, spiritual, and logical considerations just as you suggest.

    Katherine, Thanks for sharing your story! There is a great article in today’s Wall Street Journal about stay at home dad’s- it is great to thoughtfully consider and have all sorts of options!
