    Personally, I don't like pushy PEOPLE, doesn't matter if it's a man or a woman. A jerk is a jerk.

    It was more on the idea that if he treats you like a maid, then you can spend his money as compensation.

    I do my best.

    Why not? Raising kids can be a very satisfying job. Seriously though, I really can understand how a man might feel a little less "manly" if he had to be Mr. Mom forever, but I think if he is laid off or something and the wife has a job, then it's not that big of a deal. It's not like the man has to wear a skirt and an apron or anything.
    As a temporary situation, I wouldn't have a problem with it.

    What would you do if you met someone, got married and then found out she or YOU could not have children? It's not always because of the woman. Sometimes it's because of the man why a couple cannot have children. Then what?
    Adopt, I guess. Not much else you can under those circumstances.

    As far as I'm concerned, those are the two absolute worst jobs involving housecleaning. Lol.
    Toilet's pretty painless, IMO. Spray some Lysol on the thing, wipe it off, and then use one of those disposable scratcher pads on the inside of the bowl if it's needed.

    It takes like 5 minutes, tops.

    Tubs and showers suck though, especially if they haven't been done in a while.

    That is changing though.
    We'll see. As I said before, the major factor seems to be the economy. When things are bad, fewer people have children, and families that do have children have to work harder to make ends meat.

    This leads a lot of women who would rather stay home to go back to work out of necessity.

    The number of stay at home moms actually increased during the 1990s when the economy was good.

    Ironically, that's kind of exactly the problem. You're basically talking about a woman who throws her weight around like a man.

    Men tend to view that kind of behavior as being a challenge to their personal status when other men engage in it. Why wouldn't they have a similar reaction to a woman doing the same?

    I dunno about you, but when I start a relationship, I am looking for a lover, not a rival to butt heads with.

    Exactly. Most men don't even like pushy men. Unless he's our boss, father, or something else to that effect (and we frankly rebel against our fathers eventually anyway), we tend to prefer a bit of "breathing room" to do things our own way in that regard.

    Why on Earth would we want to have to put up with a pushy woman then?

    Why on Earth would a woman want to deal with a pushy man, a man who wants to boss her around all the time and tell her what to do, a man she has to "check in with" all the time?

    If both the man and woman truly love and adore each other they shouldn't have a problem.
