I came across this great article through @Dave_McGinn. It’s an article written by Andrew Moravcsik, a professor at Princeton University, for The Atlantic. You can read the full story here: http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2015/10/why-i-put-my-wifes-career-first/403240/
It’s an excellent and honest account of being the “lead” parent and the effects it has on relationships, one’s career and the idea of being a man. There are plenty of parallels in my own life and reading it reminded me of a cartoon I did ages ago before The Art of Dad was conceived – you can see it below. Enjoy!
Please check out a fantastic website called The New Family, created by Brandie Weikle, that examines and celebrates modern family life. The Art of Dad has just become a part of the 1000 Families project, an awesome story initiative that shares stories about all the different ways we create our families. You can see my story here.
