Real men are feminists! We are modern women who have our own dreams and goals and career. The most important decision in life is choosing your partner so it definitely has to be someone with same mindset and goals with me

He spends hours at a bar every day? That's not good... Let me guess, he comes from a blue collar family and does sales? I agree that he is trying to tell you what he wants but he is going about it wrong and you clearly aren't into that so you should leave. My wife loves her job and I will never make her quit but we have an understanding that children will come first and my career will ultimately support us.

And for people worried i might leave my job - i'm super comfortable with who I am, a man bashing me and calling me names only shows his insecurities, doesn't define me. It makes me laugh.
