A few weeks ago, I wrote a piece for NRO called “No One Can Have It All,” in which I argued that both third-wave feminism and some right-wing traditionalist critiques of it miss the mark when it comes to balancing marriage, family, and meaningful work.
The piece was prompted by a recent Dennis Prager column in which he quoted a caller to his radio show, who advised young women not to postpone finding a spouse in order to advance their career.
Fair enough. There’s a lot to be said for recognizing the value in marriage and avoiding the loneliness and regret that can result from unnecessarily delaying family formation. But too many commentators on the right take this argument too far.
