Women with less than 18 year old children at home are not allowed to work at
the temple. I served in the Washington DC temple for several years, and
then in the Raleigh temple for two stints, until I couldn't handle working
at the temple (fully qualified in all roles other than the Baptistery),
being a scout leader and being seminary supervisor all at once.
My wife could not be a temple worker because we had two children at home
And I fully agree.
But otherwise, I fully agree with what you said in this post.
