Agreed -- unfair to expect non-parents to give up work/life balance.

If a professional does not have children, it should not automatically mean their expectations are higher.  This goes across all industries and professions in my opinion.

I think there is an expectation that professionals without children are more available to the office, particularly for nights and weekends.

Just because someone doesn't have children doesn't mean they can be the office workhorse. That being said, I'd be more willing as a supervisor to pile on the work of an employee with no children than someone who did have children. It's unfortunate but it just doesn't seem like they have as much on their plate (even if they have outside priorities).
