Kristi says...(in response to an article I wrote about an article a man from Forbes wrote about "career women.")
Perhaps my almost 21 year marriage is just an exception to this rule. Perhaps we've just "worked harder" at being married. Perhaps we're just exceptional at balancing it all. Perhaps we're just a statistical anomoly. Perhaps my husband has no idea how much money I earn. I don't know. I will tell you what I see dragging marriages into the ditch in my community is women refusing to work and help contribute to a lifestyle to which they feel entitled while still expecting their husbands to take on household and childcare duties so they can have a day at the spa or weekend away with friends to destress from their horribly taxing country club lives. I have no idea if men in general prefer non-career women. I can tell you from personal experience that the stress of carrying to full financial load can and does lead to resentment, marital discord and divorce. I'll take my career-loving husband any day of the week over a man who doesn't prefer who woman who can take care of herself.
