Liza Mundy's new book "The Richer Sex" says women are earning more money than men.
Stay-at-home dads and breadwinning moms may be the norm soon, predicts Liza Mundy in her new book, "The Richer Sex." She points out that "almost forty percent of U.S. working wives now outearn their husbands," and that traditional gender roles are a thing of the past. It's not surprising, given that society's view of women has rapidly changed in the past century. But what does this mean for relationships?
Have our changed views of women seem to have occurred at the expense of how we perceive manhood?
Up with Masculinity
I feel blessed to be a woman in our post 60’s culture, where femininity and female strength, independence and success are touted. Unfortunately, however, our changed views of women seem to have occurred at the expense of how we perceive manhood. In short I believe that we’ve lost a real appreciation for men being men.
We women want our men to be breadwinners and rescuers (help us when the car breaks down or the sink sprouts a leak). We want our men to be strong, both emotionally and physically.
Does total freedom of choice corrupt women’s minds & put them in conflict with their inner selves?
Have equal rights for women literally destroyed the balance in modern day relationships?
What is the difference between present day society and from our society 40 years ago? Why are there so many divorces, broken homes, and single parents today as opposed to yesterday? What is the one variable in a relationship that has changed from that period until now? Women.
And, how to get him to stop watching porn. Good luck with that.
If you love someone, there is no excuse for cheating on them... Right? What sex is really like after having a baby. How to get him to quit porn. Don't focus on your guy's shortcomings. What he really thinks after a first date. What happens when sex makes her say things she doesn't mean? If your guy is a tad immature, cut him some slack. Guess what, being a little juvenile, here and there, is a great trait in a man. Harrumph.
Just as women expect men to be gentlemen, men expect women to be ladies.
As I was perusing the blogosphere, I came across an article on Very Smart Brotha's site which listed the life rules he will always follow. I enjoyed his list so much that I was inspired to publicize my "will always follow" relationship rules. A lot of my rules were learned as a child and there were some I picked up along the way that just made sense.
College students think women need to "reverse the slut" after casual hookups.
Movies, TV shows and songs—essentially, all of popular culture—would have us believe that no-strings-attached, casual sex is something that men are more interested in than women. It's true that over the years, gender-based stereotypes have assigned to guys the role of sex-seeking and to ladies the search for something serious. A new study, however, challenges those assumptions—while showcasing how such behavior affects a person's perception of a woman.
A study found that when it comes to career choices, men prefer things and women prefer people.
If you thought it was sexist to assume that girls aren't good at science, maybe you should think again. A recent study in the journal Hormones and Behavior found that genetics play a key role in the career choices we make.
Why you should under no circumstances pop the question -- no matter how fed up you are.
The women's movement has made it easier for us to crush through many a glass ceiling, have children if and when we want, and enjoy casual hook-ups, but one effect doesn't exactly seem like something to celebrate: More women are popping the question. According to a poll from the online dating site Swoon, one in 10 gals have asked their guy to tie the knot, because they were fed up with waiting for him to do it himself. Gah!
New study also says aggressive, prehistoric pick-up tactics work for those seeking casual sex.
Ladies, how do you prefer to be approached by a man? There is surely no single answer to such a question—unless, of course, you're talking about a one-night stand, according to a new study. It claims that when it comes to casual sex, women prefer straightforward and aggressive pick-up tactics, and men are more than willing to deliver them.
Math + romance don't add up for women, research shows.
It's widely known that women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and math, but who knew romance was the real reason? New research partially funded by the National Science Foundation and published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin says that as soon as women start thinking about love, science and math quickly flee their thoughts.
Infertile couples work together to maintain the husband's public image, study suggests.
Despite the onslaught of celebs who have come clean about infertility, including Hollywood A-listers Courteney Cox and Julia Roberts, the issue remains highly stigmatized. Both men and women feel the pressure to have kids, but, as with most things, the genders deal with and communicate about the problem differently.
