The biggest thing I hate about men is they want to be in control, or think they should be in control.
For what ever reason they think their opinions have more value than a womens and they only like independent women when what they are doing either enhances or does not effect what they do.
I know of at least four women I know well, where their male partners have controlled money and purchases, even if the women earnt more money, or were better at managing money. My own husband has this fault although he unable to do the food shopping and know what items cost and has a complete inability to shop around for major items.
If a women has a fear its irrational, if a man has a fear its well founded. As I am getting older more annoyed about this.
