Do you work a paid job? Do you contribute to the costs of your household? What about unpaid work in your house, like taking care of children and cleaning, cooking, etc? Do you do any of it? I ask, because a man commented on another thread that *all* men end up paying their wives for sex. I'm trying to understand why some men think like that. Are you all, SF women, living like queens, doing nothing, but enjoying yourselves, while your men do all the work in the house, take care of the kids, and pay the bills? If you observe around you, do you see most women doing that? Men, are you the only breadwinner in your family? Are you also doing all the chores, too? Is your wife living a permanent vacation, paid by you? Worldbank says women make about 46-47% of the workforce in the USA (2016). So, why would an American man think all married men are paying their wives for sex? More importantly, why is there so many people thinking only paid jobs are deserving of respect? What about the hours taking care of kids and home? Women and men who stay at home, do you feel your work is respected, just as if it was a paid job? Do you feel your partner who pays the bills thinks he's doing you a favor (because he doesn't see your part in keeping the household going as something equally important)?
