I agree! One of my speculations earlier in the thread was that Edna might fall for an effeminate guy since she herself is so masculine and would want someone to balance her out. Also true about staying home more with the kids--Harold Sr., while obviously a doctor and thus employed with a demanding job himself, almost definitely took on the role of the stay-home parent much more than Edna ever did.
