I love backwards circa 1950 chauvinist posts like this that get it totally wrong.
The problem isn’t career women. The problem is the expectation that career women should do and be everything…as long as we have dinner on the table by 7 PM.
I think people aren’t always honest with themselves. They marry because they feel pressure to. Because they want kids but the window of opportunity is small. They want the wedding but not the person they’re with.
I challenge any person who is anti gender-equality to answer these questions:
When was the last time you learned something useful at home or work? Tried something new? Challenged yourself to be a better person? A better partner?
Here’s a thought: Sign up for a marathon, read an interesting book, continue to develop skills and interests that will keep you motivated, and interesting, to your partner…do anything that fulfills you so that you won’t be left feeling unsatisfied or emasculated by your sig other’s successes.
It seems to me that it isn’t finding a successful career that ruins a marriage. It’s choosing the wrong partner that does.
