People naively do this when kids are young because they want to save money on daycare. THAT is the problem IMO. If you want women to stay home to raise children you should play them a wage, fully taxable, where they pay CPP and EI. Then when the marriage ends they can fall back on their EI or CPP. It certainly would make women AND men more accountable and we would probably see more people planning for their retirement at a very young age.

I think it's about evening the playing field. You want a woman/slave to stay home and have your kids and keep your house then you're going to pay for it sooner or later. A smart guy would plan for marriage failing right from the start.
Funny thing is no, I wouldn't want her to stay home. I would want her to work just like everyone else. And she got a job and started working but chose to put the child in daycare as opposed to giving me that time extra time. If you are no longer a stay at home mom, and are working, and are not available to look after the child all day, then why on earth would you choose a total stranger over the child's other parent. The only thing I can think of is resentment and control.

But to answer your question, they do pay their wage. And pay even more of it when they seperate through spousal support and child support. That is why I will never ever merry a women that doesn't work. She should be earning close to or more than my income, knowing what the system can do to me if she ever decides she wants to move on. Unless I truly trust her, even then, you would be surprised how unexpectedly and unilaterally people change.
