If Kadohata is going to be criticised for that, however, then her husband Vicenzo must also come under scrutiny.
QFT.

He chose to remain with his career too, and his is arguably far less important than his wife's.
Erm... says who? I'd say teaching is one of the most important professions there are.

If we start weighing careers we'll open a Pandora's box (especially considering that females nowadays still occupy less paid, less well thought of jobs than men).
Teaching is definitely a massively important profession, but he teaches ancient languages that are no longer in use. When you compare that to Kadohata's job as second officer aboard the Enterprise, it doesn't seem particularly crucial.
