I was wondering if it's possible for a woman to live with a man as an equal. So far my experience has suggetsed otherwise, I have ended up doing everything, including moterhing my partner. Is it that men find it difficult to know what their role should be? Or are they just simply lazy and selfish?
I feel as if I will end up living alone for life, as this choice seems better for me. Not that there is anything wrong in living alone, but I have always thought two parents are better than one (I have two kids). Children need a variety of influences, so surely having a mother and a father is the best way?
I don't seem to be able to reach any level of understanding with my partner. He thinks I am obsessed with cleaning, but I simply want to be organised enough so that I can do all the things I do (i.e. study, work, look after children etc).
Is there a way of showing him how well things could work if we made it a joint effort? I have tried talking to him. I thought he could understand. He keeps saying 'I am better than the average man'! I don't give a shit about the average man, I give a shit about my life and how I live. I am not willing to put up with this, just because I am a woman, why should I have sole responsibility of the work.
Help! I don't know what else to do! I feel like an unpaid and unappreciated cleaner/laundry person/cook/babaysitter.
Are there any books you can recommend I try giving him for his birthday? I.e. feminism for men (disguised as something else).
