Maybe history doesn’t always repeat itself.

But it does at least rhyme.

Mark Twain.

There came a point in the past where an entitled women gave up her position and accepted a humble life because she realised what the man knew was worth more than what she had.

So, where in history has that story been told before and do we think it will happen now?

    Does a woman give up her job, because he earns more.

    I have an example in my own life.
    Due to my partners carrier.
    We had to move further, then further, away from my work.
    Eventually the work, and the travel became to much for me.
    Despite my earning more, I for a time, gave up work.
    Being the stay at home parent.
    Should I have I said no to her choice, for my own needs.
    We’re my needs, more important than her needs.
    In my own case, supporting my partners choice.
    Was a far better, long term choice, for a family.
    Living rent free in the country, vs the rat race of city living.

    We started in a derelict rental, for her first farming job.
    Now she manages her own business.
    All I was doing was earning money.
    She was creating things.

    Many relationships will face, similar choices.
    Some don’t survive the decisions.
    The new job, in a new place, common.
    For me then it’s the opposite, of women playing the secondary role.

    Her job the priority, my money earning ability irrelevant.
