123. but you are dependent on your girlfriend's goodwill
Edited on Sun Apr-13-08 10:46 AM by pitohui
i'm sure it could never happen to you, but say your g/f is cheating on you or develops an alcohol problem and now you've got to kiss her ass and put up with the abuse because you don't earn enough to stand on your own

i don't consider a wage where i have to eat another person's shit to survive to be a fair wage

you may say it will never happen to you and it probably won't but it has happened to literally millions of women over the years

low pay means you have no power in the relationship because you don't have the option of independence so you have to pretty much tolerate ANY kind of abuse

a woman in my town had a wonderful loving husband -- until he was in a car accident, developed swelling of the frontal lobes of the brain, and was completely unable to care about anyone else or use good judgment ever again, and he was only in his 30s, so even if you make the best possible choice of partners, an accident can still happen -- we are always better off if we can be self supporting -- a man i know his wife got MS in her brain and went absolutely batshit insane and blew all their money and got into fights -- "stuff" just happens
