I can’t help but notice that the happiest guys don’t marry career women! That’s right; the guys who have wives stay at home and take care of the household seem to be much more satisfied with their marriages than guys who have wives who work!
Currently my wife is a stay at home mom. She takes care of the household, plans activities for the family and takes care of me.
When I get home from work my meal is cooked, the laundry is done and I spend time, quality time with my wife and daughter!
Conversely, I was married once before to a true career woman.
Let’s just say the marriage started out perfectly fine but eventually dissolved when both of us were disenchanted with where it was going.
Here are five things to consider before you settle down with a career woman:
One: Eventually the woman competes with the man as some career focused women are very competitive!
When one competes against the other in such things as income or job title the marriage quickly becomes strained!
Two: A wife with a job may be required to travel for her job, thus not being home as often as the relationship with you needs!
Three: Most “marital affairs” start at the workplace! Are you prepared for that potential relationship killer?
Four: Be prepared to pay for childcare as with having a wife that works will create the issue of how to care for the kids when both parents are working.
Keep in mind childcare costs between $600 and $1,400 per month per kid!!
Five: Coordinating time off/vacation time becomes a challenge because both of you will be at the mercy of your employer regarding this issue.
Don’t marry career women!
If the above five items are not enough here is some information on why you should not marry a career woman from Forbes.com.
“While everyone knows that marriage can be stressful, recent studies have found professional women are more likely to get divorced, more likely to cheat and 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.”
My advice: Marry a woman who wants you to be the man and be the bread winner! You will thank me after a couple of years of a happy marriage – trust me!
