Many women spend much of their married lives building a family and maintaining their homes. They often sacrifice their careers in order to raise their kids and have dinner on the table every evening. They may even have jobs where they defer advancement, so as not to interfere with their child-raising and other familial duties. While these sacrifices may be financially feasible when a husband is bringing in money, it leaves many women worried about how they will support themselves after a divorce.
