Masculinity on the rocks…”5 Benefits of Having a Smart & Successful Wife”
This is a must-read article for men AND women.
I’ve been surrounded by men with ego issues who have told me time and time again that a woman’s place is in the home, not working and letting her husband be the sole provider. UH, are we still living in the 1950s? Yes, people still think like this! I’ve gone on several dates with men who have been threatened by my mind and have told me that I should try to be more “passive and obedient.” Safe to say they didn’t get a second date!
Listen, I’m not going to lie here. Recently, I contemplated just giving it all up to live a comfortable and cushioned life provided by a husband. That lasted for about 1 hour. But the point of me saying this is, I finally understood where women are coming from when they say they just want to marry rich and be a housewife. It’s easier than working hard for a career that may or may not happen. It’s easier than saying you failed. It’s easier to stay in shape, look good and go to lunch with your friends who are also housewives. And I also understood why men love these type of women. They don’t challenge them emotionally, mentally, physically. In theory, who doesn’t want someone boosting your ego 24/7? In reality? A man with low self-esteem and tons of issues.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this article! While I may have been down in the dumps thinking maybe I’ll never find a man who can keep up with me, this article proved me wrong. Proof that a real man can handle a strong and successful woman who still knows how to have fun. And guess what? It actually compliments a man more than the usual arm candy. Who would have thought! Roger Sterling Jr, your mama raised you right and I’m so happy you published this.
Like the saying goes, the man is the head but the woman is the neck. And she can turn the head any way she wants.
Maybe you boys will read this and take note. I sure hope so. XO NM
