I get this thread is lolzy and it definitely made me giggle, but it reminded me of a guy who was scarily serious about the whole idea that women should stay home and make sandwiches. Somewhat more mature men in law school won't be like that....will they?


Some dudes are like this, and it drives me nuts. I run into it ALL THE TIME in the Army. Particularly older, field grade officers (colonels, generals, etc) find out I'm married with a kid, and they look at me like I have a head growing out of my ass. It's like the fact that I'm working outside the home just doesn't compute with them.

Thank god my husband isn't like that...or if he is, it's buried really deep. :) I told him I'll be his sugar-momma, and he's cool with that. A rare find in an Army officer.



Does he have a hot older/younger brother?

My ex broke up with me because I made more money than him...right now. He's trying to come back now saying he was being stupid but...well...he's stupid. He's penning a book and looks at my possible career as emasculating.

I am strongly of disagreement with your statement. There is offer, acceptance, valuable consideration meaning fruits of my labor and seed from my loins to bear strong sons. Under New York or California approach, one can find no ambiguity here - issue is more that as modern man I try to forgive minor breach, not treat as constructive condition yes?

I'm hearing this with a strong Russian accent, and oh, it's epic.

He probably 1) wants kids 2) doesn't want to be the primary caretaker or at least not as much as a lawyer counterpart would necessitate 3) doesn't want to outsource the raising of his children.

Pretty reasonable if you ask me.

I think most well-educated, mature guys won't think that. I personally would go crazy if my (future) wife was just a stay at home mom for the majority of our relationship. Still, I think the vast majority of guys want to be the primary breadwinner. It is a hard mentality to overcome.


non-lawyer =/= 100% stay-at-home

Miles of middle ground between two extremes.

Seems reasonable to me too.

As to "somewhat more mature men in law school . . ." I think you'll actually find significantly more of this attitude. I know a number of men who are looking for a woman who will not necessarily stay home with the kids, but at least have a job that is flexible enough that they can put more time into child-rearing, since the male law students are aware they likely won't have much time for it.

I'm a woman, and seeing as no one has criticized me for stating that I would like to fall in love with a man who will stay home with kids or work flexibly, I can't imagine criticizing a guy for thinking logically about what he wants for his future kids and looking for a mate who will match up with that. Parenting-wise, I think it makes sense to have a primary breadwinner and a primary caretaker - nice division of labor, there. If a man OR woman is putting him or herself in line to be the primary breadwinner, why not look for a primary caretaker to counterbalance that?

Wrong. Contract unenforceable because subject to statute of frauds as a contract made upon consideration of marriage, Restatement (Second) of Contracts Section 110(1)(c). You'd need a writing that shows subject matter and essential terms, bub.

My ex (from UG, moved here after college because he grew up here...good thing I liked Chicago anyway haha) told me that law school was the dumbest prospect he'd ever heard of, especially for a woman. He then demanded I cook for him and clean up after him. I told him I wasn't his mother nor a maid, so he should either move home or hire someone, because if he actually expected me to be his slave, he could shove it up his ass.

He didn't get it.

I moved out.

Fast forward 3ish years...I now have a fiance who wants to work from home (he's in sales) once my career is on track, and is proud of the fact that he's got a smart woman. He's a pretty bright fellow, and wants someone who can hold a conversation with him.

To top it off, he is SO MUCH better looking than my ex. Hope his mediocre looking ass finds a woman who will be his bitch 24/7, because this girl was NOT IT.

To update first SOF not applicable because consideration not marriage itself but rather shot to legitimate bear fruit of my loins, which is privilege in itself.

Unfortunately, looks as if we are for divorce. Quality of housework much slipping, beyond parameters for which legal education might serve as valid excuse. This saddens me that such feelings are treated as joking, but I will find others. Thanks of course to those who did understand.
