It may shock you and many here, but when a woman is married, or has a child, or both, it is no longer all about what the woman wants, or atleast in a sane world.
What about her child? Can they handle it?
Have you read what it does to kids, when their parents are incarcerated?
What's the difference? Atleast one can visit their parents from time to time.
And another difference is, one is employment by the U.S Government and one is not, one brings money home, the other doesn't. Let's not forget that being in the military is employment, and it's an honorable service, respected by many. So yeah there is a huge difference.
What are the circumstances here? Your wife works

Inkstain is a moron. The US Military doesn't allow single parents to enlist. Period.

Since you think both genders are equal and have equal rights and none should be specific nurturers, why shouldn't men have a paternity leave?
Absolutely,when men give birth and suckle their offspring.

Exactly, you cannot change role models within a family. But a child also need his dad present to.

A child needs both a mother and a father. Without them, you are left with damaged goods as children.

I disagree. To me, you come across as a control freak who doesn't know how to let go of other people's reins.

As for military women, they've already got to make provisions before they go overseas. Sometimes kids stay with their dads, sometimes another family member steps up and takes care of the kids (this is usually when mom and dad are stationed at separate posts). And yes, sometimes women die overseas, leaving their husbands and kids behind. They've made provisions for that as well. And most likely, the families are well taken care of insurance-wise.

"The reality is that women have already served in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. They comprise 15 percent of the 1.4 million active military personnel. More than 280,000 women have been sent to Iraq, Afghanistan or to other war zones; 152 have died and 800 been injured. Enlisted women want payment for their combat duties, and they seek promotions to jobs denied them; some are suing the Pentagon over this issue.

Women join the military for the same reasons as do men. Because of the recession, high unemployment, and the proliferation of part-time and low-wage jobs, they are also subjected to the “economic draft.” This is especially true for women of color, who face worse discrimination and economic inequality. The military recruits them
by promising college educations, job training and benefits."
<SNIP>
"Male soldiers have been serving three and four deployments in war zones. Many suffer from war-related post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. Troop morale is low; suicides are at an all-time high. There is no military draft to replenish the forces. Pentagon and other government officials fear a major revolt among the youth if they try to reinstate it.

Women are needed in combat. This is a major reason for the Pentagon’s new policy."

Children need both incomes to do well in life. It's poverty that makes the difference. Divorce is expensive. But in my experience, attorneys aren't too hot on having their clients legally separate (which, imo, is a better solution for doomed relationships).

Don't take my word for it, though. Here's a report, 10yrs old, still relevant though.

No, kids suffer whenever the home is disrupted, and I wish there was no one going to war. I just don't know why any woman would want to complicate it.
Men and women fighting together, living together, and more and more problems will happen.
A kid named Jacob worked with my wife a few years ago, and talked of joining the marines. He did, and now he's dead, becouse he was shot by a fellow marine the other night along with a "woman", and then the marine that shot and killed them, shot and killed himself.
This kinda stuff will just get worse. People have a human nature.
War calls for complete concentration, and I realize I come up with things to make people think about reality.
Why are men and women seperated in our prison system?
that's my new thought of the day :)

Ok ocean "who has still not answered my question ",if we are equal, then why not put women and men in the same prisons together?
If men and women can work, fight, together, then why not do time together?
I'm sure there would be no problems there either, right?
