you forgot part of the subject - add "for men" at the end. Women were supposed to get married, have babies, keep house and get chucked out into the workforce after about 25 years of marriage. --rad

Yep. Happened to my mother. She gave birth to 6 children, was a stay at home mother. Then in 1959 my father divorced her, split the family in two, gave her a pittance that never increased while she raised a one year old and a six year old. Oh, and he married a younger woman shortly after he divorced the old used up one.
