I’ve been reading your articles about feminism, and I have long agreed with many of your conclusions. I am a 20-year-old woman living in Georgia. I think traditional feminine roles should be honoured, and it is sad that they are now mostly ridiculed. However, it is difficult to survive as a traditional feminine woman. Most young men no longer make enough money to support a wife or children. And many traditional female occupations do not make enough.
First of all, I come from a broken family. My mother was always dominant and overbearing and my father absent and submissive. They were both violent towards one another and their children on a regular basis. They are divorced. I don’t want my children to endure the childhood I endured.
I considered marrying the first man I had a serious relationship with. When we met, I was 18 and he was 30. We had similar values, a strong connection, and loved each other very much. However, he wasn’t financially stable, and wanted to get married and have children, but couldn’t even support himself very well between pay checks.
My parents hated that I was dating an older man, and frequently threatened us. Most of my friends were also shocked I would even date someone that old. But he was mature, and being with him was the most fulfilled I have ever felt in my life. I miss him, but have no way of contacting him, and doubt he would even want me back as I have another boyfriend now.
