How can a guy would be a primary caregiver if he expected to be a primary breadwinner ?

In that daddy blues article about 75 % of the men said the same thing. You cannot be serious.

Google this topic and it comes up quite a few times. It may be true of most women, but its not true of all women. Men don't have to give up the idea of marriage and family, it just means that you have to be very careful about choosing a wife. I am fortunate in that my wife has always been faithful and loving toward me, but I can't say I have a magic secret picking a wife. My only guess would be to be careful of the woman who is "baby crazy", or whose whole focus is on the "things" she will eventually have once she gets married, a nice house, nice cars, vacations, stuff. If you get the idea that what she likes is not you as a person, but the stuff her husband might provide, my advice is to run.

Why is this then ?
Is it not enough prove that men love women far more than women love men ?
Not necessarily. It says that the men suffered the loss of affection and caretaking. Perhaps the widows don't die at the same rate because they didn't have as much affection and caretaking to miss. Wives are still overwhelmingly the primary caretaker of the home, particularly among older people.

I even posted so many articles which prove my theory. What more do you want to read now ?

I'll wager that love from a wife over a child has nothing to do with it. Although shutting your mouth does come into play. Sometimes both partners have to just shut up, put the me-show aside, and do what needs to be done.

It has a lot to do with love as women remain unaffected after the loss of their husbands. So it says something.

All women are baby crazy. They only marry for this reason. Can't blame them though.
But i am glad you find the right one. Very rare though.

The vast majority of mothers work outside the home and the vast majority are primary caregivers. And I'm dead serious. That is the makings of crappy marriages. If these guys pulled up their big boy pants and took on the roles they should, which is up front and center, primary parenting they wouldn't have the time to complain.

Even if men do love women more than women love men, why should that stop people from being with each other? Love is a nice thing.

I never said that. Did i ?
It would definitely stop ME though because i know if i ever fall in love with someone then i would do anything for her. ANYTHING. And i am damn sure that i would not get the same love back.
