Well Men have been dating Women that earned less than them or even had no jobs forever.
So now Women have good jobs and equal pay.(yes look it up).
How do they still expect Men to earn significantly more than them it just doesn't make sense.

Many women are, in fact, duped into dating deadbeats who have no aspirations to earn as much as their female partners -- or, in fact, to hold any sort of job at all.
Women have had to struggle into their positions in the classic rat race and are now expected not only to go dutch, but to treat their dates to meals, etc.
Don't forget that in the era you're describing at the start of your question, women were earning less because of the glass ceiling phenomenon (yes, look it up). "House wives" had to manage a household, entertain, bear and raise children, and maintain any number of other chores to which many (rather ungrateful offspring) somehow manage to turn a blind eye.
Please stop griping. If you don't want a woman who earns less than you and you can FIND one who appreciates and shares the offensive views you're expressing here, best of luck to you both.0
