If you ask me why reverse is the case, I would gladly say that because the husband doesn’t understand his woman. But understanding isn’t the root of this delinquent.
After asking a few women and ladies what they feel about this topic at hand, some said that they had been victims to lazy guys, who when they see that the woman is bringing food home, would rather sit back and watch the woman go to the kitchen to wash dishes, cook, and do other stuff. They practically feel like they own the woman and her income.
I’m not saying that the husband should wash the dishes or cook instead, but the husband shouldn’t be comfortable doing nothing. As a man, I believe he should also drop few quota on the table and not stay idle while looking up to the woman like the less-privileged look up to the rich.
This could make a lady run mad and react to the man repulsively.
There have been cases of wives who had become disrespectful and uncontrollable because they earned more incomes than their husbands. Of course, not all women are like this because what people do is a matter of who they are and what they believe.
There are women who feel very uncomfortable or guilty for earning more, while some others have the attitude that says, “I am the main breadwinner, why must I do any other thing in the house?”. There are instances where husbands no longer eat at home simply because their wives insult them every time they give them food. There are husbands who go to people outside to borrow money because they dare not ask their wives for loans or grants.
A man in such a situation would go out to borrow in order to avoid insults from his wife, who sees her money as solely belonging to her. You would often hear such a wife refer to her personal belongings as “my money”, “my car, “and “my house”.
One of the ladies I spoke to about this issue said, “Earning more is okay by me because my mum has been the breadwinner of my family for only God knows how long.
“I believe my parents have an understanding and that has been helping the family. I can boldly say that my mum trained myself and my three siblings without any assistance from her dad, who had retired from work.
“Although, my mum, when stressed out, says nasty things to my dad, but I feel she’s human.
“In all, I feel I can be the breadwinner of my house without having any issue with my spouse.”
The percentage of women breadwinners has been rising steadily over the past 30 years. And as women continue to earn more higher-education degrees than men, it’s likely this “trend” isn’t going away.
What’s your take about this trend?
Is it a crime for a woman to be the breadwinner of the family?
