    I'd suggest it's due to a mixture of the whole Alpha syndrome where a guy is suppose to be the 'Man of the household' and the fact that in the ever diminishing rank men play in households now a day's, if they didn't earn that little bit more, women wouldn't tolerate having them.

    Simply: Men need larger wages so they don't feel inferior (This settles the Alpha complex and keeps women happy with shiny sparkly gift things)

    I guess if I loved him, it would be a bonus, it wouldn't increase my interest though. I have gone out with a "gorgeous" fireman who was also fairly well off. Another guy who was also very goodlooking and fairly well off. I ended up with Niezchefan who is not well off.........does that answer your question?

    MEN are STUPID! and Superficial , thats all I can say about the breasts thing. Don't even get me started on that topic!

    because men are supposed to take care of women.

    It depends.

    May fields are still male dominated, a male neurosurgeon is going to make a lot more than a female.

    However in like culinary arts for example men and woman wages are similar because it is an equally dominated field.

    You've got to understand, when we get "excited" all the blood that goes into our unit comes directly from our brain. We're undergoing acute hypoxic psychosis!

    You mean a man with a wife who makes money does not consider her money as his?

    Sam, surely you know that in a marriage there's:
    Our money (the money the man makes)
    and
    Her money (any money she makes)​

    Childrearing. If gestation, childbirth, nursing, cleaning up, etc. were all given a value and applied to what women are doing, you'd likely see women over take men in terms of production. As it is, women make less cause it isn't ascribed value.

    Is it really a matter of being "tricked"? Perhaps it is just a matter of the dogma of "survival of the fittest."

    As you know, much research remains to be done in this area. Carry on.

    Define dirty job. Most nursing jobs, motel room cleaning jobs etc. are held by women.

    That is also totally true. In fact, many of us male Optometrists are worried that as more females become OD's they will drive down the salaries by working cheap!

    And let's hope then that more females will become ODs because they apparently care more about society then men.
