The State Of Western Fatherhood

 Wife wants to take care of her baby, is accused of being mentally ill by her own husband:

 My wife’s company has a generous maternity leave policy, and she has been at home with our daughter since the birth and is scheduled to go back to work just after her first birthday in January. She recently told me she doesn’t want to go back to her job and would like to be a stay-at-home parent instead. I asked her why, and she said she enjoys being a mother too much to leave our daughter to go back to work when she doesn’t need to... of the things I was most attracted to was her ambition and tenacity. It’s really surprising to hear that her career isn’t that important to her anymore...

... I really admired my wife for her work ethic, and I want her to set a good example for our daughter, too. Seeing her give up like this is really disappointing. I gently asked her if she thought her change in attitude could be related to a possible mental health issue... 

It's actually called maternal instinct, even cats possess it. It's what makes you a good mother. Yet, there are some women on the internet who will defend this loser and say that the wife needs to obey him unconditionally, and that the well-being of a baby is less important than the father's feels.

And yes, I met "men" in real life who pushed their (unwilling) wives into the workforce and then had the audacity to complain. The state of modern Western family isn't only the women's problem. 

Read the whole article over here. 

P.S. I've read a twitter discussion on the topic and some folks apparently have a reading comprehension problem. Nicole isn't the father's name, it's the lady who runs an advice column and she quotes a guy who wrote to her. 


  1. What is not ambitious about being a homemaker and mother? It's the hardest job ever with the least amount of prestige and status (right now). The paydays are few and far between for many years, but the long term benefits are immeasurable, to the woman and to society. That guy has been brainwashed by the godless, family hating schools, government and media too.

  2. Well, there is some hope for them yet, as he wrote he still doesn't want to divorce her (which means that he had contemplated it, obviously). Imagine wanting to divorce your wife for taking care of your daughter...

  3. All I know is that us men with education have to compete with women with the same in the marketplace, but then said women won't date a guy with less job prospects, yet they support this equality stupidity.

  4. I may be wrong, but it appears to me that Americans are in general very competitive and always seek adversaries. And family is cooperation, not competition.
