Why Men May Be Threatened By a Woman Who Earns More

Why Men May Be Threatened By a Woman Who Earns More

By: Serena Crawford

As more women step in to the workforce and earn respectable salaries their men are feeling vulnerable. It has been a societal norm for sometime that the man should earn more than the woman and provide for the family. Women have been pushing themselves to become successful and it is causing that societal norm to become invalidated. The problem is that men begin to feel as if they are not a productive member of the family anymore if they are not the ones who are supporting the family financially. It has been shown that couples where the woman earns more have a 50% higher chance of getting a divorce.

There are many husbands who support their wives when they go out to get great careers and start to earn more money. They will pick up some of the things that she used to do at home like making supper and household chores. Unfortunately not all husbands will do this which leads to the woman being extremely stressed out. This is one of the causes of the divorce rate spiking. Some men have trouble with the role reversal. They feel that they are being emasculated because they are not the ones that are bringing home the most money. It is a hard transition for many.

In 2010 Cornell University conducted a study on couples who were ages 18-28 and had lived together for at least a year. They found that the men that did not bring in money and dependent on their significant other to provide for the household were five times more likely to cheat on their partners than men who still worked and brought money in as well.
