“Women are less happy when they get married”- Twitter user
Written by AaronWeb on May 27, 2019
A male Twitter user has said men are the only ones who benefit from marriage, whereas women are the ones who put in all the work.
In a series of trending tweets, @WordsByDoobz said most heterosexual men are taught to be dependent on women, then when they are old enough, they are encouraged to find a “strong woman” who they can depend on to do everything for them.
He said men have better lives when they get married but women are less happy after marriage because of the increased responsibility and lack of support from the man.
He added that the only thing a number of men can claim they offer is being the “head of the family” in name only. He also said that men cannot claim the title of “provider” because the women in almost every household also work to bring home money.
He began the thread, writing: ‘ “Women are less happy once they get married” “Men live better lives when they get married” makes perfect sense. Most het men are taught to be dependents but it’s not called “being dependent” instead they are told “find a strong woman”.’
He ended by saying: “P.S. I haven’t even got the energy to express how the toxic concept of a “strong woman” reaks of abuse, silencing and is a common ‘quality’ that men of colour only expect from women of colour.”
