Damn man, dont mean to railroad you bit can you provide sources. Cause this seems counterintuitive.Cheers and thanks in advance!
I’ll have to remember to go find the articles.
Those who disagree, please state why. Am I wrong? Did your mother work straight to work after giving birth to you? Was she paid when she couldn't go to work because of a newborn you?

Even if she works?
Also, your cited sources don't really back up your argument (even though I personally agree with the premise.). The first one (Exodus) is from another time and refers to a patriarchal society in which the financial resources of a man provided food, shelter, and clothing for his entire household, including wives and concubines (who had no legal status.). The second one (Ephesians) -- which actually happens to be one of my favorite passages of the Bible, by the way -- is taken out of context and has nothing to do with money. The third one (Proverbs) -- which is also a great verse -- is talking about the inheritance of an estate, not a weekly paycheck.
Because women are illogical.
She bought you a boat? God bless her!!
I'd venture to say that a boat is even more of a gift than a BJ!
@Jamie05rhs - A gift that keeps on giving. ;)We're truly blessed. Looking at retiring in four years, move to the country, and build a new home. Taking the boat with. I just traded her car in on a new Challenger RT. :)
Being hot has nothing to do with how much money you make?Nothing about that is common sense or logical?Men do care and have to care cause otherwise they have to pay everything theirselves?
@-Asca- Hot women usually tend to go after high status men. And high status men go after hot women. Thats the natural order of things and although its not always the case, its mostly the case. High status in the USA is associated with wealth and career.I think Women wanting the wealthiest man possible is sensible. Wanting a man who can provide for herself and potential children is logical. So women want the best guy they can get. Men value a woman's look and character most. They are content if their woman has a small job or normal career.
Many men who make decent money simply want someone to give a feminine touch around the house and make having a kid or two a priority in life. So those women are pretty unattractive to the men they do actually find. Those men often would find a 23 year old barista more attractive than a 30 something lawyer for example.
Also if she's going to use you for bills, entertainment, or just really needs to borrow money for reasons of her own doing, all while you never see any of her funds going anywhere but in a place you can't get to... come on dude. This is something even scheming bro's that are pretending to be your friend would do, and they're not even something you want to poke (unless you're fag)... You'll save money with a prostitute and with less drama, and more relationship options in the long run. But don't trick yourself into thinking you're more special that what they want to get from you.
That's really cool you said that
@Wowgirl30q She is the leader
I just respect you giving her credit in whatever situation
That's a good partner
It's changing for our generation, though.
@Jamie05rhs yay for that but like I said, I never assume...
Yay for that? You think it's a good thing? (I actually agree with you, but I want to hear your thoughts on it.)
@Jamie05rhs seriously? Ik, I’ll recap. I said: it’s common knowledge that overall men tend to earn more You said: it’s changing for our generationI replied: YAY (I’m glad it’s changing for our generation) as in, I’m glad women are now earning more. Was this really necessary?
Lol. Yes. Because now I know what you meant (whereas before I didn't.). Thank you. :)
@Jamie05rhs you’re welcome. What did you think “yay” (it’s a good thing) was referring to.
I didn't know if you were referring to the gender pay gap decreasing (or inverting) or if you were referring to more egalitarian relationships when it comes to finances.
the mans a gold digger wtf is that bullshit y'all lazy ass women come up with. fuck yo family. a man is there to provide for yo lazy ass
I'd love to know who the golddigger was who downvoted you
Do you live (housing, entertainment, etc) at his level or do you live at your level? Just curious; I won't judge, because it's your relationship, not mine. Personally, if I was him, I would be totally fine with living at my level and just letting you buy fancy clothes and go to the spa with your extra money. I think if people want nice things then they should work to earn them. But I can also understand if you wanted to pay more to get a nicer apartment, because it's your home as well.
@Jamie05rhs For the time being I still live at his level, but that’s because I just recently became the breadwinner. I just started working at my job about 3 months ago, so making this much money is new to me, so I’m not really used to splurging or treating myself yet. I’m mostly focused on saving money right now so my spending habits haven’t changed.
That's great! You're a smart woman. A lot of people would go and blow it right away.And congrats on the new job!
Not disagreeing but why? I’m curious to know 😊
because it's weird, how can a women have more money than me? that doesn't sit well with me
