We've been married 10 years May 2013. Both employed the entire time. I make approx 140 / spouse makes approx 80. Both have minimal bonus. I pay insurance for family, which includes two kids (3 and 6). We both share equally to care for the kids. We're mid/late 30's, college educated (I have post grad degree during marriage, but obtained prior to kids through night school) and we live moderately below means, as house and 1 car only debt we have (minimal equity in the house). We have similar retirement, with limited pensions but a growing 401k. I understand the laws in the state I live are a bit subjective, so i tried to answer the many factors involved in a decision. Thanks for the insight.
