You May Now Carry the Bride up a Hill in Latvia

June 14th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  3 Comments

For those out there who may wonder why a majority of DadWagon writers married partly or fully Asian women, let me now reveal the true reason. Asian women are, on average, smaller than Caucasian women, and we were just dreaming of glory in the Latvian wife-carrying Olympics.

    The thing that is interesting to me is the apparent preponderance of creative-type (non-Asian) dads around these parts who work at home, do the daytime parenting with the spawn, and are married to Asian women who are primary breadwinners and have the employer-sponsored health coverage. There’s some sort of bias in the sample, of course (I happen to be aware of this phenomenon because those men are all bloggers!) but still. What gives?

    I can’t really speak for the others, but I think that would be a little creepy if it were a statistical reality. I’ll just say that I USED to support the family, and have dreams about being able to do so in the future. I still do my part (and I actually work fulltime), but if you’re a writer and don’t marry another writer, there’s a good chance you’ll get outearned.

    Well, it is true that “creative” is at times synonymous with “starving artist.” So I’m sure that any correlation is fairly easily explained by professional choices and not due to actual population trends. Anyway, for what it’s worth, my kid kind of resembles baby Sean Lennon, which I think is cute?
