Don’t resent me for working harder than you!
Gone are the days when the only place for a woman was at home with the babies. Today, women work hard to earn a decent wage to sustain their families and if some men’s egos are bruised by this then that’s a pity. If a man can’t accept the fact that his wife/ girlfriend earns more than him it means he has an inferiority complex. Men who can’t register the fact that women can earn more than them and still have a healthy relationship, I openly brand ‘chauvinists’.
Such men are like boys who have issues with girls who perform better than them in school. You should never resent someone for working harder than you. Instead, appreciate their efforts and compliment them.
There is reason to worry when you are lazy and can’t stand the success of others. Gentlemen, if you happen to be anything like this, then your wife or partner should not wait for you to get off your lazy ass to go make a living. A lazy person can be controlled and manipulated by anyone, hence the need to style up and do something about it.
According to an article by Maureen Rice, Can love survive when a woman earns MORE than a man? published on the online version of the Daily Mail, most women under 50 grew up being taught they would have careers and be paid the same as men - a revolutionary concept that women embraced wholeheartedly.
But nobody suggested women might actually earn more than men in any significant way. The very idea would, even until recently, have been unthinkable. But we are. And the truth is that we don’t know whether to feel triumphant or dismayed.
The article further shows that recent figures from a large-scale government study indicates that the number of ‘breadwinner wives’ (women in partnerships who earn more than their men) has soared to 19 per cent, with another 25 per cent earning the same amount as their menfolk. How do they (and their men) feel about their new status? And are they shining role models for a new generation or a recipe for relationship disaster.
I believe how much one earns can’t shape their character hence a woman earing more than a man can’t or should not be the cause of a failed relationship.
