Does sound a bit paranoid, but I do believe there is definitely a double standard. Here's a couple of others:
1) When a woman cheats, we are admonished to be understanding of her feelings, it was because she was unhappy, unfulfilled, desperate for affection and attention and her man was not doing his job. But when a man cheats, it's because he is a slimeball who put his poor, suffering wife thru hell all for his simple, shallow male pleasures, and he deserves to be divorced, publicly humiliated and taken to the cleaners.
2) If a woman controls the finances in the family, she is smart, keeping up on things and it's "you go, girl". But if the man controls finances, he is stubborn, abusive and a controlling schmuck who doesn't treat his wife as an equal partner.
