Worn Out Superhero

I bet you Frank Sinatra or James Dean didn’t have to do the laundry! Times have changed since the fifties and so has the role of a man in his house. A woman was very pleased with her husband if he had a good steady job, fixed stuff around the house, and made the decisions; what happened?

I want to start off by saying that I am not a chauvinistic pig. I just want to know why the expectations of a good man changed from one extreme to the next. Looking at the classic men like Marcello Mastroianni, Paul Newman, Miles Davis and Marlon Brando just to name a few; worried about earning a paycheck and coming home to a wife that takes his jacket as he sits to his newspaper and home cooked meal. The expectations of today’s man are above and beyond reality.
Let’s take a closer look at what women think a good catch consists of. A man must hit the gym hard and look as if he had stepped out a GQ magazine. A man must have a very respectable job that earns a comfy income. He must be able to work with his hands and build a tree house. A man who can make on the spot decisions but ultimately decide what you want. A man who is sensitive, listen and console his wife. That man also must be a role model father, who spends quality time everyday with his kids doing crafts, reading and playing baseball. Pheeeeeeeeeewwwwww!!

Ladies, I am not saying that the times did not need a change. We are equals in the household and our jobs must be divided to have a harmonious household. All I am asking is not to judge us quickly, for we all have deficiencies. Next time that man comes walking to you and asks you to dance. Though the guy asking you to dance might look like a GQ nightmare, think of what is harder to train. Training a man how to dress good is a lot easier than teaching him how to hold on to a job.

Well women have at it. Like, Share, Reblog or tear the heck out of me in the comments.
