I'm wondering how guys feel about this. I know every guys wants an "independent" woman but at the same time they want to be "the man" in the relationship.
Personally, I am a little old fashioned when it comes to this because although I do believe in financial independence, I also believe a man should be the one to provide and keep things running straight in his household. This is how my father is. He has always took care of me and my mom like princesses and although my mother works, he will never allow her to spend a penny when they go out together. I always appreciated that "being taken care of" feeling. I think I expect the guy I end up with to be like this too. How do you guys feel about this? and is this how you envision your relationship?
I am in training to be a doctor and I can't seem to help myself but compare my earning potential with other guys I date.
How do guys view this? Just want to get some opinions

I personally love it. My mother earns slightly more than my father and they are happy. My mother is not financially dependent on him.if their relationship were to fail she would land on her feet. My dad is a very traditional man, but he and my mom have found a good way to both have careers and to have a family.My dad is the protector and my mom is the nurturer. They both buy each other gifts (birthdays and anniversaries) and take care of each other. I think that the key to it is that the material things don't come into their relationship. Their degrees and job titles and bank accounts and public achievements stop at the front door. Inside the house they are equal partners and treat each other so.Even when they argue there are no cheap shots like "I earn more than you"or "I have a superior position than you". The respect is amazing.
I hope that I can meet a girl like that . Ambition and independence is sexy, but not to forget that intimate relationship roles shouldn't be influenced by the material things. Be a billionaire or President, but please just be my girl/wife/PARTNER at home.1
