What are the advantages of living in a 'dual career family'?

It is important for dual-career couples to discuss career desires and goals so that they are both on an even playing field, and sometimes couples change their minds about being dual-career families as the drawbacks weigh on them or their life goals change. Financial stability is one of the most important benefits since a dual-income provides for increased financial freedom. Relationship satisfaction is also typically high since career-oriented individuals have a lot in common.
