Marriage is becoming an affluent pursuit, and social mobility is stagnating: two big contemporary American problems. Having two earners is clearly better than having one. It used to be that a breadwinning male was "head" of the household. But two heads are better than one: households with two working spouses have an income three times that of a single mother.
