hmmm…rather harsh but....that's how most girls my generation were brought up - I think.
I was watching a programme on TV the other day and realised that those who fought hard for women's right to work would be rather appalled when they realised that actually there are many many many women who view it their rights NOT TO WORK!
Increasingly, there are many young women who deem it their absolutely right to stay at home - and that it is the men who have to go out and support the women.
Some women felt that if they are married to someone....then everything the guys own then belong to them and that the men would have to pay everything because by nature of being women....they will 'lose out‘ after marriage.
So….the poor guy would need to continue to demonstrate love and care and 'compensate' the woman for agreeing to marry him.
Admittedly….it's always nice to have a super rich man (or a super rich dad!) because I can then choose to do whatever I want at whatever salary and not worry about my credit card bills or mortgage or my next holiday etc.
But...that would be 'lucky'(hmmm...which I highly doubt I am) -- and I would still wanna work -
And...no....I am not materialistic and I am definitely not a feminist -
