As times change and more and more women are beginning to dominate in university and the workplace, some enter into relationships where they bring home the bacon - and sometimes more bacon than their male partners.
Azania Mosaka, 702 host, opened up the lines to ask listeners what they thought of women who earn more than their boyfriends or husbands and what dynamics are presented when the script is flipped.
My wife and I have been married for six months and she easily earns twice as much as I do. I support her all the way and I intentionally went for a strong and independent woman from the start because that is more appealing than someone who sits at home and does nothing. Generally, in my family, it is acceptable when a woman earns more than her male counterpart.— Pieter, caller
Aren't we educating girls to become more independent? That's what we're preparing our daughters for and so if they are able to earn as much or more than their husbands then that's what we want.— Bernadette, caller
My partner earns less than I do. I believe it comes down to collaborating on certain tasks and finances in the household.— Rehanna, caller
I dated my ex-girlfriend for two years and she came from a well-off background. When we met, I was doing well financially. Life happened, I lost money, but I never felt intimidated and didn't feel any strain in our relationship. Last month she told me 'its over'. If I still had money, I'd still be with her.— Orlen, caller
