"My wife and I have been considering the idea of gender role reversal. She is a very good business woman and I am more passive and enjoy cooking and can get used to cleaning, etc. Ideally, she would like me to assume the role of a traditional, female homemaker. Have your heard from other couples in such an arrangement? Do you have advice?"
