Is there a given law in some remote male dominated country that states that men have to earn more than women? It is mind boggling that in this day and age, some men still freak out when their gals earn a better pay than they do. Like really, what gives? If she isn’t shoving her wealth in your face why would you make a big deal out of it?
One would think the guy would be happy he’s not dating a free loader but a lady with self-worth and the means to take care of herself. She’s hardworking, talented and paid according to her value in the workplace. Why then would you get hot and bothered to the point of losing sleep while making her feel terrible for her accomplishments?
Being with someone who’s receiving a better pay doesn’t make you less of a man. If she’s educated and working her way up the career ladder you should appreciate that – you would be envied by a lot of people.
I’ve seen situations where soon after marriage, men ask their wives to give up their career to focus on the home… with the excuse that he’s the breadwinner and earning enough for them both. Does having a job make her care less about her home?
To ask someone to give up a career they’ve worked hard at for so many years is unfair. She was probably doing okay before you showed up, and just when she finds fulfillment in having a man alongside a good job, you suggest she gives it all up in the name of love?
