Women do not find it very, very easy to walk away from their home and family. That's simply a fact. Nor do most of them want to do that. What they want (some of them anyway) is to take care of their families in a hands-on way without being either a Domestic Goddess or a Gender Traitor.

The emancipation of Saudi women will be a long time coming, and it will be accompanied by vicious, panicked reactions from the Wahhabi, who see women as the repository of their family honor. You know what Saudis will do to avoid or avenge shame. Now, do I oppose the emancipation of Saudi women? Hardly, but it goes back to that whole cost/benefit thing. What costs will accompany the obvious benefits of that upheaval and what can we do to ensure that the death throes of Saudi male supremacy don't cause us significant grief.

Interestingly, the best way to build a stable family is outlined very clearly in the Bible. The man is the authority in the house, and both wife and children are to respect him. In return, he is commanded to love his wife as his own flesh, treat her as a co-heir to salvation, and lay his life down for her at need, as Christ did with His church. Upon the man rests all the responsibility to build and maintain a happy family...or die trying.-
In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.
Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.
