    How sad it is that you have to date a woman who will make you feel better as a man rather than date a woman who is your equal. And to generalize American women like that shows you are quite a misogynist and quite insecure at that. So you date by mail order?

    And you were asked when . What a traditional marriage today is not the same as what a traditional marriage was in the 1950s

    I think the ship has turned on that stigma. Many of my friends earn as much if not more than their husbands and their husbands love it. Men are more active in child rearing these days. I agree...traditional roles are established by the couple..what works for one, may not work for another.

It is easier to stay home but I believe many who do it have some fear because it can be dangerous. Many educated women in today's generation know that. In the end women decide and there is no looking back as you can't undo choices easily.
    My Dad basically told me the same thing. Always be in a position where you can take care of yourself if something happens. He also said, "If you take their money, you will take their shit" LOL I have worked with many stay at home Moms who decided to return to college after the kids were older and employers love them. Stay at home Mom's tend to have a lot of common sense. They are also good decision makers. They also are natural nurturers...which is a great characteristic for healthcare professionals.

    About tradition...what do you think about employers paying bonuses so women can freeze their eggs to use at a later time, after they established their careers? Check this out:

    This is a very enjoyable article, I was unaware that there is a show out there about blacksmiths. I hope you'll read it.

    I know I can only do one poll, but is anybody else here in a traditional marriage, where the husband works and the wife is fully responsible for keeping the house in order and caring for the children?
    Who determines what is or isn't a traditional gender role? Years ago men wore dresses and paedophilia was common. Shrug.

    Here is a perfect example of why I prefer foreign women. The instant I have an opinion, some American woman will brand me a misogynist.

    Ain't gonna happen. You guys will just have to get over your feelings of insecurity and live with the fact women are quit capable of standing alone.
