Yes, I could not agree with a lot of Anne's letter. So many women make more than their spouses these days. Is it now 20% or 25%? More than a few women I know are worried about the men they are leaving gaining access to their assets. Also, where have many of these women been for the past 30 years (no credit in their names??? names not on assets???)?

I don't see too many men around me rolling in dough or many stay-at-home baby-boomer women.

Yes, there is cause for concern, but the tone of Anne's letter struck me as rather odd and too far out of touch with the times.
