I don’t know of any of my male friends who would think like this and my OH wouldn’t dare . Only one of my female friends is a stay at home mum (and she was always the one I knew would end up doing that) although some work part time. All the couples I know share all the jobs at home and none of the women would ever feel or act inferior or as if they’re subservient to their partners. I earn more than my OH and most of my friends earn very similar amounts (pro rata for the part timers). We’re all university educated from upper working/ middle class backgrounds, in decent, pretty gender neutral jobs, and in our 30s so I wonder if that has anything to do with it in that older men or men in more traditionally male roles at work might think differently?
