Almost a year ago, our family upended itself and moved from Boston, our home of nearly 15 years, to central Virginia so my husband could accept a position at Southern Virginia University, an up-and-coming liberal arts university. With a PhD in molecular biology from Columbia University, Roger had published a paper in Nature and was pursuing a promising career as an assistant professor at University of Massachusetts Medical School. That was a decade ago. Our children were eight and four, and I was constantly traveling for business. We decided that our children needed more parental involvement, a scenario faced by many dual-career couples. And so my husband paused his career to become a stay-at-home dad. It’s a small club.
