I have no issue with her making more. I never did. Let's say I am making six figures and she is making 8. No problem! Because I would be also be bringing a lot home.
But you feel less of a man because you aren’t making 6 figures.
It's not an issue of masculinity. The amount of money one makes is not what makes him a man.
But it is. If you and her make enough put together to contribute to the house, I don’t see an issue unless it’s an issue with you being upset that you haven’t reached your full potential
That I do. I am studying to change fields actually.
@asker my opinion is that you feel less than a man, and you are embarrassed about feeling that way so you can’t admit to it.
I genuinely don't believe that men are measured by how much they make. My father is rich as fuck and he is a piece of shit. I always have his example.But I want to give more to my home.
It has a lot more to do than being rich though. It has to do with providing more for the home which is making you feel less than a man because you feel like you can’t provide enough for the home. I am sure you can say the same about your father maybe not providing enough for the home.
My father never brought home anything of worth. Lets say I was a girl. Would you still be making that assumption? That I wasn't feeling enough like a woman? I am sure any person, man or woman, could feel like I am now.
Of course because it sometimes makes me feel like less of a woman because I can’t cook the way my man can. My man used to be a chef and I grew up in a home where fast food or quick put together foods were a thing
Same. My wife cooks super well and I felt terrible for not being as good. I knew a thing or two, I didn't starved, but I knew only the basic dishes. She was amazing! And I felt bad for not cooking as well. So I began to cook every time I got the chance. I am much better today and even if she is still better I don't feel bad about it now.
