Whose baggage are you carrying? (Read time: 6 min.)

I was reading an article about female breadwinners.  It talked about the way in which the husbands of these breadwinners felt emasculated and, as a result, the breadwinning wives carried around with them unspoken guilt about their husband's loss of identity... and it left me wondering: Whose baggage are you carrying? I get the mommy …
