    I am a 30 year rn. I have never worked overtime. My husband (when he was living) did. Men's sense of self is often dependent on their monetary and material success, much more often than is the case with women. My employer has to make me an extremely sweet offer, to get me to work more than 24 hours per week.

    We stopped shooting our politicians for voicing their opinions here in NH sometime around 1798.

    Well, nobody ever accused those "news" outlets of ever being interested in anything but "shock" news. Replace those news outlets with the colored magazines that follow movie stars around and make up crap about who hooked up with whom and it's the same thing. Just make it about politicians and public interest news.

    Believe you me... one day, a Kardashian will be president.

    it isn't backwards at all. People are different. Value systems differ. Men and women have different values and motivations.

    I'm truly sorry about your husband. I didn't know you lost him. Hugs.

    My employer can't incent me enough to give up my personal time. My husband will gladly do it if it means recognition and more money, even though it will interfere with his hockey & snowmobiling trips with his little friends. It's served us very well for 20+ years of marriage.

    OMG that last line made me shudder, but I fear you're right.

    A few years back I asked my then-20 year old niece who she thought would make a great President. Her answer? Angelina Jolie.

    My own isn't based upon the amount of money I make or the resulting material success, but on the work, itself. There is almost no distinction between what I do and who I am.

    I might never retire.

    Men value hard work more than Women? Overtime? Nights and weekends?

    Why do people always believe studies? Have you ever heard of the coffee study? Yeah, one year it's good for you, the next it's bad. So I take "studies" with a grain of salt. Frankly, I do think men are more flexible about their work schedules than women, not to say that women have bad reasons for not being so. Most of the time I believe it has to do with family responsibilities.

    My employer knows that I have a certain expectation, and if they offer it, plus let me work on our overflow unit, I will do it- assuming I have nothingbetter to do. My self esteem isnt tied up in how much I earn.
