And I'm supposed to be shocked by that? It's b/c american women don't cook. So unless the poor guy wants to eat out fast food everyday, he probably has no choice but to cook to get a decent meal. I'm not sure what your point was? To prove he does

Ok, lets leave out celebrities. That's a very minute portion of the female population in this country. You couldn't name one real female that's done that. I could name off at least 20 men making at least 1/2 million a year that i've met and I couldn't tell you one female that even makes close to 150K a year (minus my friend who is an ob/gyn). Most women don't have that potential. It's a fact. I don't understand what's up with this competition. Ever see the forbes top list. Take a look and then let me know how many wealthy women are on there.

"American women don't cook? I am an avid and very good cook, always have been, and I manage to do so for my family and am also a career woman. My family never eats fast food, we eat all organics, mostly from scratch, and have a superb diet.

"In fact, the ones with the big house, cars, boats, and other toys often have lower net worth than the family living in the modest home driving the average car etc.

All women have the potential thanks the feminist movement. More women are graduating from college than men.

I worked in insurance for 10 years. I can state without any reservation that much of the mid to upper management I worked with were women who worked their way up through the ranks.

Not everyone can get a big home mortgage.


It has been my experience through 2 home purchases that the banks are more than willing to lend you far more money that you can afford.
