So two questions: Do you think men should be paid more than women on average?
Secondly, do you expect a guy to earn more than you if you're going to date/go out with/marry him?
I get the feeling some girls think men and women should be paid equally yet they wouldn't consider a man who doesn't earn more than them.

Men and women should be paid the same wage for the same job. I am going into criminal justice and it looks like I will be starting out in security earning about 30-40K a year. Not a lot when compared to the wages of my family members. But I expect to be paid the same wage as any male security personnel at my place of employment. I'm not going to go in there and be all like, "Hey, so I deserve 100K because I'm Ms. Special Snowflake" or whatever.
Am I going to go in and throw a bitch fit if I, as an employee of 6 months, am not paid as much as a male employee of 5 years? No. Might I throw a bitch fit if I, as an employee of 6 months, am paid less than a male employee of 6 months? Oh you can bet your sweet ass there will be words. I have been known to go to my employers and demand raises. I also get them when I want them. And you can be assured that I make damn sure I am doing the EXACT same job as the other employee. I'm not going to go in there and be like, "I only make $$ when he makes $$$ for basically the same job!" and then find out that he actually has different responsibilities than I do.
As for men... It doesn't matter to me what a guy makes. I'm dating him, not his wallet.3
