Would you guys be ok with marrying a woman who has a better career than you? Also, when you guys have kids, it only make sense if you stay at home with the baby? Would you guys be ok with all of these?

I voted no for similar reasons to @dudeman.
From what I've seen, women are very suspicious of guys who don't 'provide' at least what they do. A relationship where there is a significant difference in money means that one will have to partly pay for the other on holidays, accommodation, serious purchases (like cars), homes, dates etc. or accept getting cheaper options for all of the above. Most men don't mind this and in fact, accept it as the norm and even a positive. Women seem to view it as being sponging or him having no ambition or work ethic.
I don't mind the idea of marrying a woman wealthier than me and, while I'd want to work from home at least part-time, I could get used to the idea of being a stay at home Dad. I do however believe that the wife would see me as lazy/unmanly/selfish/sponging or something else that will just breed resentment until the relationship falls apart. That is why I voted no.0
