Breadwinner

The person who provides most or all of the income for his/her household. Stereotypically, the husband/father of a family is the breadwinner in the United States and other Western countries. However, the feminist movement in the mid-20th century and increases in the cost of living have resulted in many homes having two breadwinners. Other households have a single breadwinner of either sex out of choice or necessity.
