Why do I bother putting it up here? Because:
1/ even back when this sort of thing was known
2/ it still makes a shitload of sense, moreso for us in the manosphere
3/ it pissed off a career woman inside Forbes - who decided to do an emotion-laden rebuttal
Finally: Forbes decided to post the two, side-by-side. It's very instructional and I think you'll get a lot of yucks by going over and reading it. Especially when you see that the woman's emotional response shows precisely why no man should marry a career woman.
Point: Don't Marry A Career Woman, by Michael Noer
Counterpoint: Don't Marry A Lazy Man, by Elizabeth CorcoranThe man's article heading: factual, unemotional. The woman's article heading: emotional, shaming, pejorative.
Point: How do women, careers and marriage mix? Not well, say social scientists.
Counterpoint: Studies aside, modern marriage is a two-way street. Men should own up to their responsibilities, too.The man's article summary: factual, unemotional. The woman's article summary: emotional, shaming, pejorative.
Point: Guys: a word of advice. Marry pretty women or ugly ones. Short ones or tall ones. Blondes or brunettes. Just, whatever you do, don’t marry a woman with a career.
Counterpoint: Girlfriends: a word of advice. Ask your man the following question: When was the last time you learned something useful, either at home or work?The man's first paragraph: factual, unemotional. The woman's first paragraph: emotional, shaming, pejorative (also betrays the woman's mindset of "if it's not useful to me, then it's not useful period, don't you dare do it").
Point: Why? Because if many social scientists are to be believed, you run a higher risk of having a rocky marriage. While everyone knows that marriage can be stressful, recent studies have found professional women are more likely to get divorced, more likely to cheat and less likely to have children. And if they do have kids, they are more likely to be unhappy about it. A recent study in Social Forces, a research journal, found that women–even those with a “feminist” outlook–are happier when their husband is the primary breadwinner.
Counterpoint: If the last new skill your guy learned was how to tie his shoes in the second grade, dump him. If he can pick up new ideas faster than your puppy, you’ve got a winner.The man's second paragraph: factual, unemotional. The woman's second paragraph: emotional, shaming, pejorative.
You can see where it's going here. The man offers a relaxed, informative article for other men to chew over and think about. The woman offers an emotionally-laden, shame-laden, anecdote-laden rebuttal. Also some unsolicited female advice to men, to make him more attractive to teh wimminz. In fact it's visible by reading between the lines of what she wrote, the exact reasons why you should not marry a career woman.
Bluntly: she read the article, decided that it was aimed squarely at her, and blew her nut about it for all to see. Because she's stupid (how could this person manage to be a professional?) what happened next was she had to blurt her unfocused and emotional thinking all over the internet for everybody to see.
At least she serves as a graphic example of why you shouldn't marry a career woman.
