Nearly 77 per cent of democrat female millionaires, and 82 per cent of female millionaires overall, said they 'would prefer to date a conservative man,' according to MillionaireMatch.com.
So even leftist wealthy women would prefer to marry a conservative man. Why? Some of the reasons given include the following:
'I don’t want a liberal man, I want someone who believes in a traditional family,' said one female millionaire.
Apparently, democratic female millionaires also find liberal men 'less masculine'.
'Simply put, conservative men are real men. They are the breadwinners, they wear the pants and they treat you like a lady,' one woman said.
There's a similar story about a government sponsored initiative in Switzerland to have 20% of men work part-time. A newspaper interviewed several young, ambitious careerist women, but none of them wanted their men at home:
Although all of them wanted an equal partner, none wanted a househusband who does the housework and organises the family.
One woman, Tamara Hernli, put it very strongly:
To still have on cleaning gloves, when the wife comes home from work and longs for sex would be the absolute horror scenario.
I don't think this means men shouldn't help out at home. It does mean, though, that it would be a mistake for a husband to think he was going to establish the right kind of relationship with his wife by doing domestic chores. That's not what is going to nurture a heterosexual relationship.
As for part-time work, I can see it having a positive side if it allows a husband to exert more of a paternal influence at home. I wouldn't choose it for myself, though, because I've seen what happens when a work-force becomes part-time: work demands start to fill up the "time off" so that work that was once paid becomes unpaid. The ideal is, wherever possible, for men to be paid a living wage and to have enough time off, as part of their conditions, to be able to spend time at home with their families.
