Yeah, just heard the FAIR radio show on this (with the guy that wrote the cepr article as a guest). http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=4583Yes marriage- and even if people aren't married, coupledom - confers tons of economic privileges. But as they point out it's total BS to use this lens to focus on the main reason (probelmatic on so many levels - subtle individual-blaming, couple-centered, hetero centered). Why are both of them working full time and not making a living wage? The problem is mostly that they are underpaid (and that women are paid less than men on average, and "women's work" jobs are undervalued).
