The number of dual-career couples with children is growing fast. These
couples face various challenging problems of organizing their lifes, in par-
ticular connected with childcare and time-management. As a typical ex-
ample we study one of the difficult decision problems of a dual career
couple from the point of view of operations research with a particular
focus on gender equality, namely the location problem to find a family
home. This leads to techniques that allow to include the value of gender
equality in rational decision processes.
