I'm doing all that while also working myself through nursing school so I can be a stable source of income to support the family into the future. Sometimes for all I do I feel like I deserve that my wife bring a harem of girls home to me on occasion...not that I have ever said so, or even really felt that way. What is more true, is that I feel I deserve my wife to be my harem (at least sometimes when I have the time) like she was before she knew she had me as her own...when she was being the person she wants to now be to other men (at least this is what I think she means when she says she want to feel like she's free to be whoever she wants to be with another man and how if I were involved she couldn't experience that freedom).
Yeah, I`ve run across this being a 'liberated' woman insofar as it is convenient and snapping right back into macho gender roles when things get inconvenient quite a lot. And you did forget the chair-pulling, and door-opening...this
I am actually quite serious about what I`ve stated, although I realize I did it in a douchey, blanket-statement kind-of-way. But, it seemed right for the occasion.
It sounds to me like you`re simply a mono guy at heart who`s being taken for a ride by an opportunist because she`s supposedly hot. There are actual prostitutes available to you for that particular purpose.
Maybe if you slept with a bunch of steaming hot women you might stop putting this one on a pedestal along with the other chumps. If entitlement is Snow White`s drug, Prince Charming is her enabler.
