Why don't men want to be with a woman who makes more money?
What Girls Said 8
Because they actually have a completed where they need to be economically bettet than a women to be a man. Even the poorest man is richer than his stay at home wife he doesn't let work for income.
Not all men are like this, just the ones to which you are referring. It's sad how the construct of masculinity is built just to be higher than women, men just can't be men by their own inner strengths, talents and maturity 🤔 they have to put down someone else.
Some men want to be with a woman who makes more money. It depends on the man and what he is looking for in a partner. Typically people feel like its emasculating... but I think that only holds true for traditionalists and men raised with the pressure of "being a man means you provide".
You’re a man, you answer it🤷🏼♀️
I don’t understand it either
I think they just want more control in the relationship and what decisions are made with money
Probably because they feel like a less of a man.

Some men don't, but I'd bet most would be OK with it.
It wouldn't bother me. I guess some guys would feel like they're inferior or something if they don't make at least as much as the woman, but as long as I feel like I'm contributing to the relationship in other ways I'd be OK with it. I know a few guys that are in that situation and seem happy so it's certainly not always the case that a guy doesn't want to be with a woman that makes more money.
Not entirely true. My ex earned about twice as much as i did. It never bothered me. The fact my girlfriend is my boss doesn't bother me.
This will bother guys who don't see women as equals, as human beings. When a woman accepts you for who and what you are, what you, and her earn means nothing
Quite honestly its the other way around. Due to female hypergamy, women that tend to make a lot of money only want to be with someone that makes more than them. Trust me i know many men that would happily marry a woman that makes more... But women tend to see men that make less than them as somewhat inferior and not worth dating.
There are several things to consider:
1. A man is raised as a provider. What happens when she says I don't need any from you. Your not going to feel appreciated.
2. Some men dont know how to act when she says I dont want anything from you. They never stop to think that may be she likes you for your good qualities.
3. Some women will treat you like thier btch.
Personally, I don't care because each person should be contributing to the relationship according to thier means.
Personally I don't give a fuck who makes more money
Oh no my girl makes more money that doesn't mean shit if your a couple and if you are an idiot who say but I am man then try better in the bedroom to balance it out
Who says they don't? You state it as if it's a generally agreed upon fact that all men feel this way which is not true. As with everything else in life, some do and some don't.
Its not always the case...
But yes men dont want to be with women who makes more money because whenever they argue on something... the woman will never agree in that thinking that i earn more than him. doesn't matters if he does not agree i will do it myself i have everything
Because when she gets angry at him, all the mean shit is going to come out, including that he doesn't make much.
It's not that I don't want to make less than her, it's that I want to be the only one who would even have to work, in the first place. I believe a man should be the one to provide, and take care of his wife. I want to be the only one who needs to work in my household and my future wife can do whatever she wants. If she wants to work, she is welcome to, and I would support her 100%. But I would let her use her own money however she wants as I want to be the one paying the bills because it would be my job as her husband to provide for her. So even if she made more money than me, I still feel I should be the only one who has to pay the bills
It wouldn't matter to me, if she made more money than I do. I'm secure enough financially, that I don't need to feel odd.
I have seen guys have a problem with it. I don't understand.
Personally I am happy for her and I see absolutely no reason of it coming between us.
I don't care about money, if they got money. Hey! Its a plus, but look for love not money
Men don't factor in a woman's income in their attractiveness level.
All men like a sugar momma if they can find one. Nobody says no to money.
It doesn't matter to me how much a woman makes. I've dated an artist who was struggling and I've dated women who make much more than me.
My girlfriend sometime way more money than I do so what am I worried about that was her job at my job so I'm supposed to be mad about that and not enjoy it that's crazy as hell why would I care
It's about honor, It hurts a man pride if his woman earn more than him, Men usually try to always stay a degree above their women
I don't think it's a bad thing just a matter of preference
I don't mind. I care less about financial and more about personalities and compatibility.
lol. they don't? I must have missed the memo! I don't think it matters one way or the other.
Cause most men fear the risk of losing their masculinity, and they're douchebags
I dont mind at all
Do women want to be with a man who makes less money?
Well not all men have a problem with that
But yes there are some who do and typically it is a remnant of a more fully patriarchal society where men are the breadwinners that it is their function in the family to provide and if they are not in that position they feel emasculated and denied the control and dominant household position they have been taught is theirs by right
Of course in some cases the women are just as bad and cannot respect a man they are with if he isn't the provider and will actively attempt to emasculate him and then they eventually leave because they believe they deserve better than the person they destroyed...
Obviously this is not always the case
It is only some of the women who consider themselves modern and get educated and so on but somewhere in the back of their head they have more archaic mindset still
I’m cool with it. As long as she doesn’t make less.
They don't... Kind of a outdated topic. It's not the 1920's
In case he has to rely on her for part of his finances and she tries to get controlling.
Cause it makes them feel like they not doing something right
"Bad temper, insolence, and dispute hold sway
Where the wife supports the husband."
I would love a woman who makes more. I can finally take it easy at home for a while
I don't mind as long as they buy me guitars every once in a while😜
