Let’s talk about sex baby
I think that female breadwinners are experiencing a real push back on their success.
Whenever real change is occurring, there are always some people who fight against it to maintain the status quo.
However, the current media messages are damning:
Female Breadwinners are 40% more likely to divorce their lower earning partners than men with lower earning partners.
Men who are completely economically dependent on their female partners are five times more likely to cheat.
We are still doing the lions share of the house work
On an average day, 83 percent of women and 65 percent of men spend some time doing household activities such as housework, cooking, lawn care, or financial and other household management.
Women cant have it all
Anne Marie-Slaughter concluded that juggling high-level government work with the needs of two teenage boys was not possible.
To add insult to injury, men now have problems in the bedroom due to us. According to a study of 25,000 men in Denmark, husbands who earn less than their wives are more likely to use erectile dysfunction medication than those who had a traditional breadwinner role, even when there is only a small difference.
A woman, six minutes into the video below, argues that if she was a stay at home Mum she’d have more energy for sex. I think she’s kidding herself, because being covered in baby drool, with no adult conversation doing household chores has never made me feel sexy, but maybe I’m special!!
So what do you think? Is your sex life suffering because you are the female breadwinner or a man who is earning less than his partner? Is everyones sex life suffering because we haven’t got out lives in balance at the moment? Is your sex the more virile due to being the female breadwinner? How do female breadwinners continue against this push back? I’d love to know what you think.
