If there are kids, well, the man will work longer and harder over the lifetime of the relationship, whoch is where the pay gap comes from.
The way I see it the essential truth is that Men provide things women can't and women provide things Men can't.
Financial stability is not the only thing in traditional gender roles.

The man is also not fulfilling his God-given role. Men are expected to provide the house & all necessities for the family (Ex 21:10, & Eph 5:28-29), and while women can have jobs if they want to (the virtuous woman commended in Prov 31 ran a business), they're not obligated to. Instead, women are obligated to make the house a home (Proverbs 14:1).
