Something tells me I'm the only person around MAS who would yell at you for sexism. Unless maybe Miss P. made another appearance.
I can live with all these statements, though, with respect to the carte blanche business, I'd be very particular about whether the man has "insisted" on the arrangement or not. If it's actually just how the relationship has developed (probably more common--"well, once we're married, I'll work at the firm for a couple more years then we'll have a family (i.e., I'm retiring, bitches!)"), then you're in a much different ballpark than "if we're married, you will not have a job and you will make our house your primary responsibility."And as an aside, this whole "housework drudgery" stuff is something that I've never really bought. I know that it's supposedly worth tens of thousands of dollars if you hired a maid to do every little thing, but I don't think I'll ever be convinced that doing laundry and going to the grocery store is as bad as, say, working biglaw. As boring, maybe, but still.Anyway, I'm all for simultaneous careers. I was raised by nannies because Mom worked; fine by me.(I just edited to add some things)
