Nate Ulmer & Jamie Harrison
Stay-at-home dads are having quite the moment these days. Also referred to as housedad, SAHD, house-husband and house-spouse, “SAHD-ness” is the stuff of sitcoms, reality TV shows and feature articles in GQ Magazine. A barrage of definitive studies and vocal commentators are zealously announcing the benefits—no wait—the perils (which is it?) of this increasing role reversal in American families. As with most current social and family issues, the debate is polarized, vociferous and riddled by stereotypes. And it couldn’t matter less to Nate Ulmer and Jamie Harrison, two men/husbands/fathers who are actually living the life—happily and by choice.
