Men should stop paying for women at the restaurant

In the western world, we live under gender equality. It means that men and women have the same rights and duties. Consequently, women earn their own money. There is no need to pay for women at the restaurant or at the bar. Women should pay their share and men should pay their share. In general, men should stop paying for men and get nothing in return.

If a woman plans a relationship with a woman, he should consider her income. She should earn at least money at him. Thus, he will not financially support for the rest of his life if they live together. I think we can be flexible and accept that a woman earns 15% less than the man. I say it so because, in the case of a marriage, the accumulated wealth difference between the spouse gets important after time. If a woman earns 30% less than the man for 10 years, if the man saved some money, the gap is going to be important after 10 years. 

Even if the two people aren’t married, being the financial support of your girlfriend will be a problem. Even if she does not a lot of money it does not mean she has no expectations. I remember a housewife who asked her husband for paying the fees of a photography school ($6000/yearly for 2 years) plus $4000 photo equipment. This is just the example that comes to my mind but there are other situations.

If you share your life with a woman today and if you start to make her luxurious presents, it is going to be very difficult to sustain this behavior for 40 years. She will likely not understand why she does not receive luxurious presents after you decided to stop making presents. Anyways, the law of Briffault says that once you give something to a woman, this thing has no value.   

I have observed situations where the man earned less than the woman. I have heard of open-minded women but I have never met a couple where the woman tolerated that her husband earned less money than her. In fact, when it happened, the woman asked the man to compensate for his lack of money with something else. For example, he was asked to do all the household chores at home. Quite interestingly, when a woman earns less than a man, still in 2018, I am not aware of any man who asked her wife or girlfriend to perform household chores. The difference is obvious. When the man does not earn money, the woman is bossy and authoritarian. When the woman does not earn money, the man isn’t bossy and authoritarian.
