I knew there was a growing trend for wives with kids to stay at home.  But apparently this trend includes wives without kids.

Daniel Buccino, a Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine clinical social worker and psychotherapist, says stay-at-home wives are the latest “status symbols.”

“It says, ‘We make enough money that we both don’t need to work outside the home,'” he says. “And especially with the recent economic pressures, a stay-at-home spouse is often an extreme and visible luxury.”

A stay-at-home wife is pretty impressive. But not as impressive as a stay-at-home single guy!
