for men, do you feel insecure when your partner has greater income that yours? does it make you feel down?

Hello there. I feel that most men feel insecure and inferior when their wives earn more than them. This is the opposite for girls. Girls usually feel better if their husbands earn more than them. Husbands are usually regarded as the head of the family. As the head of the family, they are required to assume many responsibilities. When a guy earn less than the wife, the wife has to assume more responsibilities in the family and she will be considered the head of the family. When that happens, the guy will usually feel useless and down. I guess this is due to the guy's ego. Actually, if a woman is willing to be with you and disregard the fact that you earn less, it means that she truly loves you. Instead of feeling insecure and down, the guy should treat the girl better and love her more. It's tiring for the girl when she has to always reassure the guy when the guy feels insecure and down.

Its not a woman's fault that she earn more than her husband. I dont know if they feel down about it but if they think that they are doing their part in helping the family I guess there is no reason to feel down. But if they are lazy and just enjoy relaxing while the woman is working like a fool then he should be shame of his self. He really have to be ashame if thats the case.
