Can roles switch for the three mitzvot?

You say being around more at home is a rationale for women’s priority in the three mitzvot according to Rav Hai and Rambam. If that’s true, and my husband is a stay-at-home dad, does he get priority lighting candles or separating challa?

That’s a very interesting idea. When you’re unavailable, he already has priority. But when you are available, the roles don’t switch, for a couple of reasons:
1. If women’s priority is based on being in the home, that still applies today. Stay-at-home dads are still the exception to the rule.
2. Even were the majority to change, we cannot dismiss the possibility that women’s priority is based on Chava’s story.
