Re: Who should pay on dates?
I know I will get flames for this, but here goes.
Ladies, please remember, if you insist on men always paying for dates, you are perpetuating women being paid less in the workplace. If men need to be able to pay for dates to get access to "high quality" women, they will be more motivated to maximize their income than women will be. Trust me, no matter how motivated your daughter (or mine) is to buy new shoes or a house or save for retirement, my son (and yours) is even more motivated to get all that plus a hot date on Saturday night. If increasing earnings is a primary way to increase SMV, then males will prioritize work success over friendship, leisure, household chores, childcare, etc. In the end, they will out earn females - because they have to do so to gain access to desirable partners. So if you tell your daughters to insist that guys pay on dates, also tell them not to complain when they don't make as much as the guy down the hall. He probably pushed for it harder than they would feel comfortable doing.
When you can see it coming, duck!
