I recently read a story of a young waitress who found love in a man and quit her job for him. She didn’t just quit because she was lazy to keep working, or due to medical problems!
Nope, she stopped working because her man told her she didn’t need to work.
There are a lot of cases where husbands or boyfriends who are financially capable decide that if their wife or partner work less hours, it will give them more time to either take care of themselves, travel more and employ others through their own businesses as opposed to slaving for the government or someone else.
So I created a survey:
Guess the gender that YESed most
Back to the story I read. She obediently listened to her man and willingly stopped her waitress job. Obviously the man was providing, making all the money and taking care of her and ordering her around like his property. They got married, had 3 kids and soon after because she for obvious reasons had to be dependent on him for every damn thing. He assumed the position of her father and lost every bit of respect for her, took away her kids and sleeps with other women within their circle.
This is the thing.
I do not or will I ever understand why in this day and age, any woman would want to quit any job because her male partner thought it better for her to.
I will never understand those women who are mentally and physically stable and capable to work but choose to run every minute to husbands or partners for their every need.
I can understand taking a break from working, with a definite plan to make use of your brains for the benefit of the society. What I will not get is being content with being a stay home trophy wife all so you can show that you are submissive to your male partner.
What do you think your well-to-do-I-am-a-man-taking-care-of-you does when he is in the same boardroom with other women who are exercising their brains and adding value to the world, who banter with him intellectually, take on projects and finish them, come home to a woman who is content with reading bank statements and complaining there aren’t enough diapers for the baby.
I’m sure a lot of working women would resonate with this: with the feeling of having your own money, the feeling of having a say in decision making because you can put your mouth where your money is, and for the feeling of fulfillment humans get from providing for their family, this is something that shouldn’t be limited to a gender. Everybody likes to feel useful and needed.
