Stacy Francis Quoted by Wall Street Journal on The Primary Breadwinner Is Disappearing From More Homes
Changing Up the Breadwinner
Stacy Francis, President and CEO of Francis Financial, discusses the role of breadwinner in the household and the effect it has on relationships and self-perception.

When Ms. Francis, who often works with breadwinning women, surpassed her husband in earnings, she said the pair celebrated. After years of bearing the burden of bringing home most of the bacon, her husband was somewhat relieved to turn the job over to her, she said.
