Spoiled brat? You're very insulting...

If one spouse stays home with children, while the other works, only one of them is contributing to CPP. If they stay together that CPP is effectivley shared in their old age when it is used to fund their retirement living.

If the two get divorced legislation requires the splitting of CPP credits during the years of marriage. The idea is that not splitting credits is a windfall to the spouse who worked, and a shortfall to the one who stayed at home with the kids. This is not something unique to her situation - it is required, unless circumstances exist which would fall outside the legislative scheme.
