What is wrong with a wife that marries a man that doesn’t want to work? In contrary, what is wrong with a woman that wants a man that can’t provide for his family, and she wants to be the provider? Does it make her feel in control? I have a sister like this, and she loves it that she’s a provider and that he does not provide for his family. One response is this: That’s fine if the wife is the breadwinner and makes the money. More power to her. But, it is only natural for a man to work and be a provider. It is instinct, just like it is for a woman to be a mother. If he can’t do that his self-esteem goes down, thus feeling less of a man. Anybody else have opinions?
I do not believe there is anything wrong with a woman being the bread winner or supporting the family compared to a man. I think that the relationship and it’s dynamics are dependent upon the two people involved. If that is what works for them so be it. It’s their lives and their choice to how they work out the logistics. Many times people put to much weight into what is “natural instinct” yes we have them but at the same time each of us is different. If being at home and taking care of the household needs is his perogative then thats great. It’s a lot of work so it’s not like he wouldn’t truly be “working”. We all need a purpose in our lives and if that means working to provide or working to maintain the household whatever works is still a purpose and has a meaningful impact.

If women love chivalry so much how come they don’t really appreciate guys who are that way?I seriously can’t think of one time a woman didn’t take chivalry for granted with no “thanks” at all or tell me it’s dead or just use me. They just expect it.
Don’t change your methods just because you haven’t yet been appreciated. Chivalry is a dying art form in my opinion. It’s an honor to women and what they symbolize to the universe. You never know what you have until it is gone so the saying goes, so keep it up and it will mean more. Also, there may be a chance that you are looking to the wrong women to expect them to appreciate your efforts. Continue to be yourself and be respectful someone at some point will appreciate you for you. And thank you =) for being chivalrous.
