About – Don’t Marry Career Women

Guys: A word of advice. Marry pretty women or ugly ones. Short ones or tall ones. Blondes or brunettes. Just, whatever you do, don’t marry a woman with a career.

Why? Because if many social scientists are to be believed, you run a higher risk of having a rocky marriage. While everyone knows that marriage can be stressful, recent studies have found professional women are more likely to get divorced, more likely to cheat, less likely to have children, and, if they do have kids, they are more likely to be unhappy about it. A recent study in Social Forces, a research journal, found that women–even those with a “feminist” outlook–are happier when their husband is the primary breadwinner.

Not a happy conclusion, especially given that many men, particularly successful men, are attracted to women with similar goals and aspirations. And why not? After all, your typical career girl is well-educated, ambitious, informed and engaged. All seemingly good things, right? Sure…at least until you get married. Then, to put it bluntly, the more successful she is the more likely she is to grow dissatisfied with you. Sound familiar?

Many factors contribute to a stable marriage, including the marital status of your spouse’s parents (folks with divorced parents are significantly more likely to get divorced themselves), age at first marriage, race, religious beliefs and socio-economic status. And, of course, many working women are indeed happily and fruitfully married–it’s just that they are less likely to be so than non-working women. And that, statistically speaking, is the rub.

To be clear, we’re not talking about a high-school dropout minding a cash register. For our purposes, a “career girl” has a university-level (or higher) education, works more than 35 hours a week outside the home and makes more than $30,000 a year.

If a host of studies are to be believed, marrying these women is asking for trouble. If they quit their jobs and stay home with the kids, they will be unhappy ( Journal of Marriage and Family, 2003). They will be unhappy if they make more money than you do ( Social Forces, 2006). You will be unhappy if they make more money than you do ( Journal of Marriage and Family, 2001). You will be more likely to fall ill ( American Journal of Sociology). Even your house will be dirtier ( Institute for Social Research).

Why? Well, despite the fact that the link between work, women and divorce rates is complex and controversial, much of the reasoning is based on a lot of economic theory and a bit of common sense. In classic economics, a marriage is, at least in part, an exercise in labor specialization. Traditionally men have tended to do “market” or paid work outside the home and women have tended to do “non-market” or household work, including raising children. All of the work must get done by somebody, and this pairing, regardless of who is in the home and who is outside the home, accomplishes that goal. Nobel laureate Gary S. Becker argued that when the labor specialization in a marriage decreases–if, for example, both spouses have careers–the overall value of the marriage is lower for both partners because less of the total needed work is getting done, making life harder for both partners and divorce more likely. And, indeed, empirical studies have concluded just that.

In 2004, John H. Johnson examined data from the Survey of Income and Program Participation and concluded that gender has a significant influence on the relationship between work hours and increases in the probability of divorce. Women’s work hours consistently increase divorce, whereas increases in men’s work hours often have no statistical effect. “I also find that the incidence in divorce is far higher in couples where both spouses are working than in couples where only one spouse is employed,” Johnson says. A few other studies, which have focused on employment (as opposed to working hours) have concluded that working outside the home actually increases marital stability, at least when the marriage is a happy one. But even in these studies, wives’ employment does correlate positively to divorce rates, when the marriage is of “low marital quality.”

The other reason a career can hurt a marriage will be obvious to anyone who has seen their mate run off with a co-worker: When your spouse works outside the home, chances increase they’ll meet someone they like more than you. “The work environment provides a host of potential partners,” researcher Adrian J. Blow reported in the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, “and individuals frequently find themselves spending a great deal of time with these individuals.”

There’s more: According to a wide-ranging review of the published literature, highly educated people are more likely to have had extra-marital sex (those with graduate degrees are 1.75 more likely to have cheated than those with high school diplomas.) Additionally, individuals who earn more than $30,000 a year are more likely to cheat.

And if the cheating leads to divorce, you’re really in trouble. Divorce has been positively correlated with higher rates of alcoholism, clinical depression and suicide. Other studies have associated divorce with increased rates of cancer, stroke, and sexually-transmitted disease. Plus divorce is financially devastating. According to one recent study on “Marriage and Divorce’s Impact on Wealth,” published in The Journal of Sociology, divorced people see their overall net worth drop an average of 77%.

So why not just stay single? Because, academically speaking, a solid marriage has a host of benefits beyond just individual “happiness.” There are broader social and health implications as well. According to a 2004 paper entitled “What Do Social Scientists Know About the Benefits of Marriage?” marriage is positively associated with “better outcomes for children under most circumstances,” higher earnings for adult men, and “being married and being in a satisfying marriage are positively associated with health and negatively associated with mortality.” In other words, a good marriage is associated with a higher income, a longer, healthier life and better-adjusted kids.

A word of caution, though: As with any social scientific study, it’s important not to confuse correlation with causation. In other words, just because married folks are healthier than single people, it doesn’t mean that marriage is causing the health gains. It could just be that healthier people are more likely to be married.

1. You are less likely to get married to her.

So say Lee A. Lillard and Linda J. Waite of the University of Michigan’s Michigan Retirement Research Center. In a paper, “Marriage, Divorce and the Work and Earnings Careers of Spouses”, published in April, 2000, they found that for white women, higher earnings, more hours of employment and higher wages while single all reduce the chances of marriage. “This suggests that (1) success in the labor market makes it harder for women to make a marital match, (2) women with relatively high wages and earnings search less intensively for a match, or (3) successful women have higher standards for an acceptable match than women who work less and earn less.” Some research suggests the opposite is true for black women.

2. If you do marry, you are more likely to get divorced.

In 2004, John H. Johnson examined data from the Survey of Income and Program Participation and concluded that gender has a significant influence on the relationship between work hours and increases in the probability of divorce. Women’s work hours consistently increase divorce, whereas increases in men’s work hours often have no statistical effect. “I also find that the incidence in divorce is far higher in couples where both spouses are working than in couples where only one spouse is employed,” Johnson said. A few other studies, which have focused on employment (as opposed to working hours) have concluded that working outside the home actually increases marital stability, at least when the marriage is a happy one. But even in these studies, wives’ employment does correlate positively to divorce rates, when the marriage is of “low marital quality.”

3. She is more likely to cheat on you.

According to a wide-ranging review of the published literature, highly educated people are more likely to have had extra-marital sex (those with graduate degrees are 1.75 more likely to have cheated than those with high school diplomas.) One April, 2005 study, by Adrian J. Blow for the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy summed it up: “If a woman has more education than her partner, she is more likely to have a sexual relationship outside of her primary relationship; if her husband has more education, she is less likely to engage in infidelity.” Additionally individuals who earn more than $30,000 a year are more likely to cheat. “In a more general sense, it appears that employment has significantly influenced infidelity over the years,” Blow said. “The work environment provides a host of potential partners, and individuals frequently find themselves spending a great deal of time with these individuals.”

4. You are much less likely to have kids.

According to the National Marriage Project, the incidence of childlessness is growing across the socioeconomic scale. In 2004, 20% of women over 40 remained childless. Thirty years ago that figure was 10%. But the problem–and it is a problem because the vast majority of women desire children–is much more extreme for career women. According to Sylvia Ann Hewlett, an economist and the author of Creating a Life: Professional Women and the Quest for Children, only 51% of ultra-achieving women (those earning more than $100,000 a year) have had children by age 40. Among comparable men, the figure was 81%. A third of less successful working women (earning either $55,000 or $65,000) were also childless at age 40.

Sources: The State of Our Unions 2006: Life Without Children, The National Marriage Project, July 2006. Creating a Life: Professional Women and the Quest for Children, Sylvia Ann Hewlett, Miramax Books, 2002.

5. If you do have kids, your wife is more likely to be unhappy.

A 2003 study published in the Journal of Marriage and Family concluded that wealthier couples with children suffer a drop in marital satisfaction three times as great as their less affluent peers. One of the study’s co-authors publicly speculated that the reason is that wealthier women are used to “a professional life, a fun, active, entertaining life.”

Sources: “Parenthood and Martial Satisfaction: A Meta-Analytic Review,” Jean M. Twenge, W. Keith Campbell, and Craig A. Foster, Journal of Marriage and Family, 2003; “Money doesn’t mean happy parenting,” USA Today, July 21, 2003.

6. Your house will be dirtier.

In 2005, two University of Michigan scientists concluded that if your wife has a job earning more than $15 an hour (roughly $30,000 a year), she will do 1.9 hours less housework a week. Of course, this can be solved if the husband picks up a broom.

Source: “Data Quality of Housework Hours in the Panel Study of Income Dynamics: Who Really Does The Dishes?”, Alexandra C. Achen and Frank P. Stafford, Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan, September 2005.

7. You’ll be unhappy if she makes more than you.

You aren’t going to like it if she makes more than you do: “Married men’s well-being is significantly lower when married women’s proportional contributions to the total family income are increased.”

Source: “Changes in Wives’ Income: Effects on Marital Happiness, Psychological Well-Being, and the Risk of Divorce,” Stacy J. Rogers, Danelle D. DeBoer, Journal of Marriage and Family, May 2001

8. She will be unhappy if she makes more than you.

According to the authors of a controversial 2006 study: “American wives, even wives who hold more feminist views about working women and the division of household tasks, are typically happier when their husband earns 68% or more of the household income.” Reason? “Husbands who are successful breadwinners probably give their wives the opportunity to make more choices about work and family–e.g., working part-time, staying home, or pursuing a meaningful but not particularly remunerative job.”

Sources: What’s Love Got To Do With It? W. Bradford Wilcox, Steven L. Nock, Social Forces, March, 2006; http://www.happiestwives.org.

9. You are more likely to fall ill.

A 2001 study found that having a wife who works less than 40 hours a week has no impact on your health, but having a wife who works more than 40 hours a week has “substantial, statistically significant, negative effects on changes in her husband’s health over that time span.” The author of another study summarizes that “wives working longer hours not do not have adequate time to monitor their husband’s health and healthy behavior, to manage their husband’s emotional well-being or buffer his workplace stress.”

Sources: “It’s About Time and Gender: Spousal Employment and Health,” Ross M. Stolzenberg, American Journal of Sociology, July, 2001; “Marriage, Divorce and the Work and Earnings Careers of Spouses,” Lee A. Lillard, Linda J.

    Wow. Well I found too many discrepancies to count, and I am a 28 year old female social researcher, and proud career woman married to a career man. I came across this site whilst looking at a very common problem in relationships in how to balance commitments outside of the home when you have a child. My husband would not tolerate a stay at home wife. In both of our opinions, and the opinions of my friends (as all but one are career driven mothers) there is simply no reason for a woman not to go out to work, even just for a few hours part time. I take after my mother, and grandmother. I am a great part time parent, terrible full time one. I also think it is essential for a child to be interacting with thier peers as soon as possible so nursery is encouraged. I love my child but find spending 5 days a week, all day at home extremely boring, and I found that I was so desperate for adult, more stimulating conversation I would pounce on my husband as soon as he was in the door and talk his ears off. This he found incredibly fustrating since he had spent all day speaking with people and wanted peace and quite when he got home. It led to arguments, dissatisfaction on both parts, and we decided to was best for me to go back to work. Now I am back all is running smoothly except for some commitments I have in the evenings that always seems to be sacrificed for my husbands work commitments. Now there may be a solution, there may not but either way it is not wise to expect to be happy with your relationship 100% of the time. This is because people by nature are fickle so what we want changes faster than the objects of our desire can sometimes materialise and you are owed nothing in life at all so your lucky to have what you have. If any men are reading this please do not dismiss career women. We make excellent mothers and housekeepers (I cannot tolerate mess) as we are industrious in nature. Yes you may be unhappy with some aspects, but I know plenty of men, including close family, who are incredibly fed up with thier lazy housewives who expect to do no work for the material things in life but reap all the benefits.(not all but I have seen this attitude many times in stay at home mums that I personally know)

      Proud career woman married to a career man gimme a break! Ain’t no love in this paper contract. Please don’t talk about parenting as your children aren’t going to be anybody worth noting in society. Leave social research and start to genuinely work on yourself, and yes, TLDR.

  2. The Truth Is on

    It is real fact is that a woman with an average job would really make a much better wife anyway.

  3. theunzippedwanderer on

    As a career woman in the 6 figures I can tell you this. You are right about a lot of things. HOWEVER, you say don’t marry us when in actuality we shouldn’t date weak men PERIOD let alone marry them. Who actually needs to be married in the first place? There is no difference in happiness levels between single and married women. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/20/single-married-happier_n_972397.html

    But it’s not just that. IF a man has a problem with his woman being a bread winner then he has an inferiority complex, to begin with. Meaning the strong woman he is with will resent him for being what he is.Weak. Blame the “career” all you want but a strong woman is a strong woman. You also forget a working woman? Can pay for a cleaner so a dirty house is just being lazy or cheap. Its not that shes making more that causes her to leave. It’s the guy she chose. Its just that when we can support ourselves we are less likely to stay with someone we aren’t compatible with. THAT SIMPLE. IF I was dependent on a man for survival how could I leave if I no longer wanted him? It would be pretty hard.

    Now cheating at work? Really? Like men don’t do it? If I had a dime for every time I have seen a man cheat on his spouse with someone in the workplace I could of retired years ago. So please don’t put that out there like its women who do this. It’s anyone dissatisfied with their marriage.

    Now the issue with kids makes sense. Kids are career killers for women not men. Must be nice. Not to mention it destroys our body and other things but hey we should ALL want that right? You know how many women have kids and regret it? A lot more than you realize. Now I understand so many people want them got it. But being a career woman isnt the reason a woman doesn’t want kids. Its because she just doesn’t want them. Simple as that.

    So yes if you are weak and unworthy you are right. You shouldn’t date a career woman. Stick to the basic do nothing women you have. She will be miserable with you but less likely to leave. Congrats

      The six figures have choked your mouth full of crock so you always talk out your ass. Your ‘strong woman’ bs is best stuffed in your ass, it has no faux value here. The way you raise the points proves that you must suck big time in all these areas in your life. Because I’m assuming you practice what you preach.

      You may be a strong 💪 woman but look deep down and reflect on Wether you are genuinely happy. There are many strong women like you with no kids who wallow in extreme sadness when they age. They have to employ someone to nurse them in old age. The result, their hard earned money gets willed to deir favorite pet dog. Life is fun when simple. Live humbly.

      • Mirgane on

        Plenty of old people in nursing homes have kids. Having children is not a guarantee that you won’t employ someone to nurse you in old age, nor does it guarantee that you won’t become sad ever after (unfortunately). Just ask a parent who has kids estranged from them.
        And if you don’t want kids don’t have them. It’s much more happier for both you and your unborn child if you don’t resent them for your own issues. Don’t have them for they will look at you in old age either. There is no guarantee that they’ll be able to. Not saying don’t have kids ever. After all it’s a given that most will have. However have them for right reasons, not to have them “complete” you. After all they didn’t ask to be born.

      “Career women” are simply making the same mistakes “career men” have traditionally made ever since women in this country have the most ridiculously competitive desire to take the traditional roles of men and surround their entire existence around the concept… I don’t think the amount of money a woman makes or career choice/career status defines strength or success… Matter of fact , the shallowness selfishness narcissistic and emotionally disconnected traits of the new age so called “career woman” is all I see shining when it comes to them… For whatever reason you entitled “weak” minded women think power and selfishness is the key to happiness , news flash if you have to spend a life “proving” how strong you are and how capable you are you might not be as strong and capable as you think… The strongest guy in the room isn’t the one talking about how strong he is , the smartest guy in the room isn’t talking about how smart he is , the wealthiest guy in the room isn’t talking about how much money he has… Strong people are ALWAYS humble people… Go ahead and spend your life chasing money and power positions , we’ll see how your love life and emotions are in the end… Remember there is an Intellectual Quotient and an Emotional Quotient , both very important but in the end EQ always wins… Love always wins

      That’s a taste of career women for you. She must fall within the income bracket mentioned I guess. Easier to find unicorns than a career woman with integrity, strong morals which correspond to her actions and who is humble. A billionaire or president can be that but not a career woman.

  5. This Is Why Many Of Us Good Men Are Still Single Today on

    Well career women are very greedy and so damn selfish since they have no personality and no respect for us men since they really think that they’re the greatest thing on this planet because of their high salary that they’re making these days which makes them so worthless and clueless as well. They have such a very bad attitude problem as well when many of us men will try to start a conversation with them which they will mouth off to us when we will just say good morning or hello to them which has happened to me and a couple of friends that i know already and we never did anything wrong at all for this to happen to us in the first place. Many of these women are complete psychopaths the way that i look at it which years ago most of the women back then were real ladies compared to these pathetic losers nowadays since the women back then really did put these women today to real shame altogether as well. I never at all expected to have a woman curse at me which really had shocked the heck out of me at that time which i believe that many of these women today had to be very abused by the men that they were with at one time for them to act this way which most of them are real feminists to begin with. It is just too very bad that the women of years ago are all gone now since most of them were the very best of all compared to now and certainly would’ve made a much better wife as well.

    Career women are the worst. They make horrible wives, horrible lovers, & don’t know how to treat a man. I personally prefer the more family-oriented types of women—-they’re more loyal, respective, & not overcome by greed.

    It just cracks me up how during their 20s they are so “career-driven” that they’ll sacrifice their relationships for their careers. But watch these career women turn into their 30s & suddenly can’t find a man then become miserable….”The Wall” serves as poetic justice to these prunes

    i have marriage experience for more than 30 years and married two times in that very period , i came to conclusion that the women is a taker , man is a giver this by nature , if the women feels that she gives more than what she takes she will withdraw immediately in the first place she will feel that she is fooled why does this man (her partner ) takes from me so much ? there are ques of men why should i waste my time with this man? what is so special about him ?, women pride and selfish are good reasons to let her brake her marriage no matter what are the consequences , just look at them women’s how they are trying very hard to get the benefit of the job with out giving much to the job , i think a man should be very careful in marrying a women who is financially independent or let us say have vantage over him (her husband )she will not give him respect and she will try to rid him such a man will suffer too much from such a women superiority , a man has to be wise enough, love alone will not work it will decay overtime such as anything else , and for women s they have to know that the game is over and men foolishness is coming to its end times, if a man is not foolish then how can a women tempts him and attracts him and more or less she is the the same being as him with different sex organism? is that not the same game that eve had played on Adam and she made him the first sinner?( oh Adam we are suffering because of you ) ?, i will better stop here or otherwise i will be attacked by women s right societies , when are we going to have men right societies by the way?t

      You’re absolutely right, you’re in a very traditionally nurturing job position and seem quite content, rightfully so.. Some women chase career for materialistic reasons and that makes her emotionally unavailable.. I’d love to marry someone like you regardless of the figure they made.. we’d build a great household together (or save up for early retirement) upto her.

    My husband and I believe in equality, we have two careers and we balance the stress of life, with the love we have for one another. We SUPPORT each other. It is much more likely that all these things are not actually the mean of the women’s career but of an unsupportive and narrow minded husband. Mine on the other hand champions my ambition and loves me for it. A marriage is a partnership not a PURCHASE. My advice for all; pick someone who makes you happy… heart talking to heart… and forget the rest, if you love enough you can overcome any challenges, two careers, kids, family, homes and all the other stresses. Women should be proud of being women, as men should be proud of being men the two should not stifle each other’s choices and journeys.

      why does one have to be chasing money to be considered “ambitious” or “successful”

      • Mirgane on

        You need money to have your needs met in the current system. Besides their sole reason aren’t necessarily money, there are other (and much more important after basic needs are met) reasons people pursue their jobs. Sense of competence, contribution and socializing among them.

    • Virtual on

      Well i agree for partner thing, but I’m not sure of equality. By equality, I don’t mean just in term of earning or career. I’ll try to put up my point by an example.
      Both my uncle and aunt are doctors. They married while in med school. There was a period when my uncle was doing great and my aunt was freelance practicing with two kids. Few years later on my uncle got into NHS and Aunt got into partnership of private hospital. She got busier and he managed kids and home with his work. Now my Aunt earns three time that a few my uncle and both are happy!
      My point is both should manage career in such way than one of them is always available for family. If both are too ambitious for career and working 50+ hours weekly, then there’s won’t be a happy family.
      BTW my mom’s a school principal and dad worked for petrochemical company. Both retired from good positions but it was my mom, who was available most.

    Boycotting such kind of nefarious creatures is the only choice men have , I wonder why they don’t seem to be thankful that men have invented almost everything from a needle to a bad-arse aeroplane for human comfort ,they have even invented vibrators for some creatures, just to keep them happy if they hate men ;D, however these creatures are too mean to realise that , may be they would realise it after they miss all the water till the well runs dry or may be they wouldnt ! , It’s true that 1950’s ladies much better , only because they would simply support their men to invent other things ( may be some other toy as well ;)) .I think men probably would have invented the time machine ( to make them even more happy ;))if things were like 1950s and if they were not distracted and seduced by those wise ladies. All I can say is men must concentrate their own carrier and don’t give a shit about anything , education is the best weapon , believe me Bros 😉

    Marrying a woman of this generation is like diving from 40,000 feet height and landing on the mountain. You can begin to imagine the impact. The women of this generation are a disgrace to humanity and I don’t see large percentage of them making heaven that is if they even believe there is any thing like that! They are used to breaking God’s commandments. So feministic ideologies is not new to me. Madness in the highest order!

    Having been married and now divorced for several years and raising my young daughter, I work hard to be a good Dad and role model.

    What I have observed both during my marriage and since my divorce is a lot of “Me First” mindsets with both females and males.

    Divorced, single men aged 50 and younger have and are in increasing numbers walking away, giving up on women of similar age. Whether you are with men or not, there is a deeply ingrained belief that based on both individual experiences and those of even other men, women are simply not worth the headache, stress nor anxiety to deal with! Many women belittle men both privately as well as publicly. Stupid, dumb, $h!t for brains, etc are some of what most women and men can quickly have come to mind what are being said daily to men.

    I have also noticed that teenage boys as well as younger adult males are significantly less likely to be in a relationship. I have asked some that I work with and the answer falls within the “It’s not worth it”, “My parents are divorced”, “I’ve seen how my dad was treated”, “My friend’s Dad is financially ruined”. Who said that the younger generation can’t learn from the rest of us?! My ex was similar. At first I made more money then as time went on with her career, she out earned me and along the way, an awesome little girl came into our lives. Cheating, demanding I make more while at the same time raising our daughter while my ex traveled for her career. It has been several years and I still refuse to have another individual enter my daughter and I lives and run the risk of ruining what little bit we have after the storm. No woman on earth is worth it. A growing number of men feel the same way, justost don’t say it aloud and face a backlash calling them losers.

    Now as a Dad, it does worry me somewhat. I work and do my best to show my daughter how to be respectful, caring, loving. She can talk with me about anything and does, even those awkward times when I still answer honestly but attempt to give my answer based on age and such. Great little girl. Friendly and strong outgoing person. Learning how to work on computers, building and repair. Knows how to use a hammer, drill, other tools. Learning to cook some basic foods. Helps me put gas in the car. Laundry, some simple house repairs. And many other things that I want and need for her to be able to do on her on.

    I know that based on what I am seeing, she will need to be completely self sufficient, “but always having Dad for as long as I’m alive”.

    Hopefully she will have a successful career and life. Working early to help her have good grades, learn multiple skills, S.T.E.M..

    Right here is the right website for everyone who really wants to understand this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic that’s been discussed for many years. Great stuff, just great!

    my wife came home and said there are all these other men at her office that are better then me.
    She rubs elbows with them daily.
    They don’t argue with each other.
    She likes being told what to do by her boss and obeys him.
    She spends more time at work with other males and so eventually she will open her legs for them.
    He rewards her with money and words.
    She will not talk back to her boss and this makes her feel he is the alpha male in her life. He validates her with rewards.
    She will compare you to them subconsciously and consciously.
    She will eventually cheat on you.
    A woman wants a man that makes more money then her.
    I asked my wife to stay home and take care of the children. She refused.
    I learned the hard way.
    Marry a nice housewife because she is less likely to cheat on you.
    God bless.

      I forgot to mention that its easier for women to cheat because they get many more offers then men especially if they are in the office settings. She will compare you to her male coworkers daily because that’s what she is around most of the time and they don’t argue with each other the way a husband and wife will. That will also play a huge role in her eventually cheating with the office males.

      ffs, just every sentence you wrote was pathetic. And in the end you still wanna tell other they shall marry. Goddamn omega male

      “I asked my wife to stay home and take care of the children. She refused.”
      WTF??? Why the hell you ASK a woman??? A real man does what he wants and dont ask for it ffs.

      “She refused”
      you are pathetic. A man slaps that Bitch and divorce her.

      “She spends more time at work with other males and so eventually she will open her legs for them.”
      You still imagine that she hadnt already fucked all of them??? how fucking pathetic can someone be??

      • Mirgane on

        “you are pathetic. A man slaps that Bitch and divorce her.”

        Why slap them for it? If you want a housewife marry a housewife. Don’t demand others will change their lifestyles for you if you are not ready to do the same. There are plenty of women who want to be housewives.
        And it’s not about her so called career but character. She clearly doesn’t have any respect for you if what you say is true. Some housewives cheat too, especially with social media makes it easy to flirt. A tinder is enough, career or housewife.

    Wow…. If this editorial of working women isn’t the biggest crock of shit I’ve ever laid eyes upon, I don’t know WHAT is. These are just fancified bull shit excuses to justify sexism. Not to mention, that there aren’t enough men in the world to go around for every women. If women outnumber men, how can the ones left single survive? SOMEBODY has to take care of them. If they can’t fend for themselves, then NOBODY WILL!! Bottom line!

    I am a 28 year old guy and my mom is a career woman.Will be retiring soon. I HATE her to the deepest bottom of my heart. She gave endless pain to my dad(who is no more) and ignored me in every way. My dad had a large business but due to some undue losses, he had to shut down and move to a smaller business. He loved her whole heartedly and always thought and did good for her, but just because of his unstable income she started troubling him and made his life miserable. She is also a sinner (even though I was a kid, I had two ears and eyes to see whats going on). I have spent days crying alone because of this “career woman”. God will punish her and she will suffer.

    I just pray to god that I find a good girl, a family oriented girl, who wants to be a housewife, who would love me so that I could spend the rest of my life peacefully with her and get over with my depression. I will NEVER make a mistake of marying a career woman.

      Hello Brother, your last resort is to go to Ukraine. I’m actually from Ukraine and I can tell you is a Ukrainian woman, who believes in Jesus will be very submissive to you, plus they are the best cooks, and they will treat you like a king in your castle. It’s sad, even Ukrainian girls who come to US got Americanized and became disrespectful, materialistic, and other things.
      God Bless

    Career women are the worst of all since they do cause most divorces these days, and they’re the biggest cheaters as well which most of them are very likely to sleeping around with different men all the time. Many marriages have been destroyed by this already since many of us men had this happened to us already unfortunately. Quite a change in the women of today compared to the old days when most women back then were very faithful to their husbands and really had to work hard for their money which today they’re very greedy, selfish, spoiled, and very money hungry as well. That is why most marriages did last back then since both men and women were very committed to one another, and most men in those days were very faithful and worked very hard as well. Now women today just unfortunately expect too much since it is all about them which most of these type of women are real losers anyway.

    I read everything in here and am a living witness. I married a carrier woman, when we first met, she loved me,,,always told me how sweet I was, how uncommon I was, how special I was. She earn more money than me, and she told told that’s not a problem, she said everything she has is mine and everything i have is her’s too. I was happy that God has finally heard my prayers, not knowing i was being fooled, Now the truth,,, after one year she changed, she’s now complaining the money I do give her is not enough, that she spend more money than me, after she told me she love me the way I am. She expect me to do the laundry, OK, I did it cos I loved her, she still expect me to clean the house, OK, I did that too cos I love her. But with all my doing just to satisfy her, she was not yet satisfied. She told me to my face that am doing nothing for her, infact she even restricted me from driving her car, even though she can’t drive, I was the one taking her work then when I close I drive to her work place and bring her home, but all to no avail, she’s not satisfied still. Now she travel to Kuwait with our daughter without my consent. Now tell me,,,,why will a man be so ambitious to marry a carrier woman, except that man wanna die young. Carrier women are selfish and self centered. Instead marry a woman that value and respect you has a man…That’s all I will say in here…God bless. You wanna know email me ( johnsada13@gmail.com).

    The disgusting pieces of shit Feminazis (all american women) obviously cant stant the truth that they SUCK ASS and nobody wants them. Like kids the fucking Feminazis downvote every comment that is telling the truth and upvote every Lie. And like always, the fucking Feminazis dont want to take responsibility for the SHIT they have caused. They rather dont want to face the truth that they all FUCKED UP, they rather somehow want to blame men for the shit that fucking Feminazis caused.

    The truth is that ALL western women are feministic pieces of shit and disgusting Land-whales with an irrational inflated ego and they all think they are entitled to the whole world. All western women will die alone with their cats, without men, without kids but still refuse that they have caused all this by themself. Western women are disgusting

    Career women really suck altogether since they have the worst attitude problem, no respect for us men, they really think they’re all that, and a very rotten personality to go along with it. In other words, they’re all pieces of shit.

      I am loving these comments.

      I am a women and I can never understand why we are just expected to live by other people’s expectations.

      But I don’t feel bad because I can hear the redneck accent in most of these comments due to bad grammar and spelling. You want to know why else I don’t feel bad? Because we are going to outlive you, you’ll be gone one day, and our daughters will be contributing members of society in whichever way they choose – mothers, caretakers, or, yes, career women.

      All I see on this thread are WEAK individuals who contribute nothing. Why don’t you get off your ass and be a winner, be thoughtful, evolve and read a book? I am happy to know that I will likely outlive this sorry band of commenters. Enjoy your life.

        actually lady, i have to disagree with you. i am a democrat voting, big city raised, MINORITY. and i agree with the guys on here. btw its weak guys (beta males)who put up with women of this sort. while its the “alpha males” who these women cheat with. i dont think alpha male = strong neccessarily. i think real strong guys are those who go without these sort of shitty women, and if they happen to be in a relationship with one, they have no problem kicking them to the curb and moving on.

      Career woman here. I have a great deal of respect for men. It was the men in my career that mentored me and stuck up for me to get me to the level where I am at. All of the women I have come across in the working world only fell to the level of catty, immature bullshit and tried to tear all the other women around them down.

    Human history simply don’t have sufficient imperative valid data to run why career women make sense. The post has every single conclusion derived from the correlated phenomenon. Why don’t we promote some articles how some career women family sort out the issue? Why do women take responsibility of family by default. whats there to give?

    Most of these so called very pathetic loser career women are just toxic waste altogether since most of the time they will sleep around with different men every chance they get, especially since they like to party all the time on weekends and get totally wasted.

      Its funny how having an individual interest and passion outside of cooking, cleaning, laundry , and rubbing a man’s head suddenly makes women into monsters. One poster said his career woman “asked him to do laundry and he did because he loved her” she “asked him to help clean” . He sees this as some great favor though he sits on his ass scrolling from sport channel to channel. A woman is “worthless” in your eyes because she doesn’t see the need to “punch in” at home like she does after a 50 hr or 60 hr work week making money to help you sorry asses pay the bills. My mother was a career woman , so was my grandmother , and I will continue same. There were many days that my mom would have liked to stay home and bake all day but she had to maintain her career since my dad who she remains married to had “spurts” of commitment . Have you ever wondered whyyyyyy some women cling so dearly to their careers? Because we know it’s our only true ticket from “having to” deal with you pricks and the insults ,and disregard you throw our way.

      Sure your marriage may very well last longer if you marry someone with no dreams or interests outside of being your maidservant. She is dependent on you for defining her self-worth ; dependent on you for survival. Me ? I could give zero shits. I still eat and have a roof over my head whether or not you leave. Hence , the workings of a household and a relationship are BOTH our responsibilities. We are here because we choose to be, not based on survival. Now isn’t it more satisfying to know that a woman with options chooses you , rather than know she is likely with you because she has no choice?

    This has a lot to do with it as to why many of us good men can’t really meet a good woman at all nowadays since they will just go for men that have a lot of money or who are just rich altogether which makes it very difficult for many of us average hard working men looking for love now. These women are just down right very horrible altogether and total losers, especially the ones that use men for money to begin with. Just too many very selfish, greedy, spoiled, and very money hungry women everywhere these days and real golddiggers as well. It is just too very bad that we don’t have a real time machine to send these very pathetic women back in time to see what it was really like which these women today would’ve never survived since that was the real world back then. This is why the women in the old days were real ladies and very old fashioned which is the very excellent reason why most marriages lasted so very long compared to today. And for the women today that are still single now are certainly much better off staying single altogether, especially the ones with their so called careers.

    Single career woman at 33 and pretty happy to be completely honest. There is someone to hang out with for every occasion and my success in sales has made me a person about town. Few places I go now where I am not recognized. I charter a lear jet for vacations and enjoy the heated Audi seats on cold days. Hang out at the local resorts floating around the pool. This life has been a good one. Different strokes for different folks. The great thing about this country is that you can be whoever you want and that is perfectly okay.

    Written from a tainted perspective. The secret is to marry the right career woman whose os not only devoted to success in the boardroom but equally in the bedroom and every room in house. Before all that be honest with self about what you as a man can handle. Surprisingly men in church have most rigid traditions regarding gender roles but will still preach from Proverbs31 scripture that speaks to the desired complexity and abilities of a “queen”. If a man struggles with this maybe he aint the king he thought he was….but rather just a court jester for enterntainment when king and queen have nothing better yo do.
