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 should earn more. I expect to date a man who earns more.
- Men should earn more. I'm not overly concerned how much a guy I date earns.
- Men and women should be paid equally. I expect to date a man who earns more.

It's a relief to see the majority of girls are voting D.

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.

Women aren't going to be honest with themselves about this one. I think we all know that very few rich female doctors would date a guy pizza delivery guy. No matter how many other wonderful traits he had. On the other hand, men have little problem dating women that make far less than him. It is a basic law of attraction that a woman does expect her man to make at least as much if not more than her.
I think men should be encouraged to go into higher paying fields to find a mate. I do not think a man and woman doing just as good at the same job should be payed differently.
