	Yah, there's certain questions that typically verboten, like race, marital 
status, kids, religion, any of that stuff.  It's just as much protection for 
the potential employer as anyone else - if you don't ask the question, then 
you can't be accused of using it(possibly illegally) against the applicant.

	if you're offering a job that requires long hours, then just say so up front.  
It shouldn't remotely be the judgement of the interviewer whether or not a 
spouse would have problems with it.  It's up to the applicant to convince the 
interviewer that they're willing to do whatever's necessary for the job.
