When I said “I do” the second time, at age 32, I knew what this marriage was about — kids. We both said we wanted to have a child, maybe two (my preference), and we talked about what that might mean for us financially.  We were both journalists at the time — not big income […]

Women are more depressed and anxious than men. Why? Because we don’t make as much money as men do, researchers say.
