A New Jersey man wrote in a "USA Today" column that he won’t let his wife quit her job to become a stay-at-home mother.

Sean Dunbar explained:

The happiest times I have seen my wife (besides with the kids) is when she has achieved professionally. I don't want her to look back and say, "I could have done 'this' with my degree."

I worry if something were to happen to me, she'd have to start over at a much older age.

I'm scared my wife will feel inferior to me — and resent me.

More so, I think about our daughter. I don't want her seeing mommy at home, thinking she needs to do the same because that's what she grew up seeing.

I lay in our daughter's bed at night, talking to her and listening to her dreams about going to Mars or being the first female president.

We don't talk about her dreams of becoming a trophy wife or stay-at-home mom.

Andrea Tantaros said today on “Outnumbered” that it seems like Dunbar’s motives are altruistic, but if you dig a little deeper, his wife is saying she’s not happy.

Dr. Keith Ablow remarked that it “sounds like he’s not quite sure where he ends and his wife begins.”

“I think he’s truly showing care for her, I do,” Sandra Smith said. “He might be wrong and it might come across poorly but […] he wants her to be happy.”
