everyone's circumstances are different. i was in a coma, when i came out of it, i was no longer fit to work, we had huge medical bills, but hubby made just enough money, that we couldn't qualify for assistance. and because i hadn't worked long enough to pay into the system, i wasn't qualified to get social security help either. i'll just leave it at that cause i don't want to drag the thread completely off topic.

Out of every female I have ever had the opportunity to interact with, you are by far one of the most difficult to see eye to eye with. It is near impossible to gain your approval or get you to admit that you are wrong.
You have an innate distrust of men where you think they are only being nice because they want something in return.
You put down and try to smear them at every turn. You dismiss anything they say relating to any interactions they have had with women that go against your views. You ALWAYS assume men are guilty and women are innocent on any issue that gets discussed on ATS. You are one of the most sexist members on this forum.
These just might be some of the reasons why you receive labels such as "Feminazi". Get used to it because with your current mindset, you live up to the role very well.
There are some families that really can't make ends meet on one income, even if they do cut back on everything they possibly can. You and your wife are fortunate that you can raise three kids on one income and still have a decent life. Not everyone is so lucky.
If you're both at work, the house won't get dirty to begin with.

There seems to be a persistent belief that women are somehow incapable of understanding some issues or that they should essentially know their place.
I don’t believe that women are oppressed (not any more anyway), that we are victimized or exploited by men daily, or that women are in any way the superior sex.
Literature, mythology, and folklore from virtually every part of the globe contains tales of women who were fierce in battle, leaders of armies, revered leaders of their people, heroines, goddesses of war, etc.
