I have great news. I am no longer the cash cow of the family. My husband started his new job this week after being unemployed since March. I’m relieved I am no longer bearing the financial burden alone which was a lot of pressure, stressful and scary.

Congrats! On one hand, as women, society blocked us from many professions for so long and we still struggle with the old boys network and pay disparities. On the other hand, many of us have never felt the pressure of being the only bread winner. It's scary. One of my friends is a single mom, what pressure she must be under!
