WOULD YOU RETIRE YOUR HUSBAND/BOYFRIEND?
Mecca (Author) will be on The Artist Exchange tonight LIVE at 5 pm to talk about this article right here on BXR.
On the Wendy Williams Show that aired on July 1st, she provided her opinion to social media influencer Tabitha Brown and her husband Chance Brown's decision to retire her husband who has been in law enforcement for 15 years. Wendy Williams's opinion was “Nope, I was married to one of those. You know I make the money and you go live out your dreams, buy a business so on and so forth GO GO GO! You see how that turned out.” Wendy goes on to say, “ You over here making all your money and stuff. You have me quit my job and I can’t live like a child.” Now based on Wendy Williams's response you definitely can tell her opinion came from her personal experiences.
My question is if you are financially capable as a woman to retire your mate, would you? And if so, in today’s society is that a bad thing?
Men have always been looked at as the provider, but roles have changed. In Tabitha Brown's situation, she grew up with her mate since they were of middle school age. Tabitha did defend her and Chance's decision by explaining that her husband sacrificed by being the breadwinner for 15 years while she perused her dreams. But again isn’t that supposed to be his role as the provider? Wendy has an interesting point to look at as well. What if he took advantage of that opportunity and decided to “do him” you know meet other women and have a whole family on the side. Do you feel like a fool or stupid for that decision?
What we tend to do is feel ashamed and stupid for doing things that we would naturally want to do for someone we love, right? If we are elevating we want our mate to elevate as well that is a natural feeling of love. I have to throw this out there if the person is taking advantage (in the wrong way) of a person or situation that is already given, who is the stupid one here?
I say yes I would retire my mate but only If it makes sense to me. I would want my mate to do that for me. Some may call it stupid I call it natural to give something I can afford to lose. Tabitha felt as though her husband made the sacrifices for her to pursue her dreams, so she is greatly paying him back. I mean a relationship is about the give and take, right? We as a society are evolving and we must go with it. Roles are in a gray area right now and we slowly (and I do mean slowly) are starting to accept that.
Do what works best for you and yours just understand that everyone’s potato salad isn’t going to taste the same.
