That seems to be the norm. But is it normal?
This topic actually highlights why a lot of men don't want their wives to work - because they can be her boss (paying her a monthly stipend) , and be her husband at the same time.
Unfortunately, these men have learned that exerting control over money in a some women's lives, is the best way to "get" respect from them. A woman may detest her boss, but as long as he employs and pays her, she will always "respect" him.
I so much disagree with you.
What made a man more of a man? would it be cos of money or cos the guy has a coy? and what made someone a loser? as long as the man doesnt lay his hands on you and he has your interest at heart, even if he is not as loaded as the woman's boss, he is still a real man and should be respected
If your husband work in the same firm as you, then you respect your boss more.
BUT business life and personal life should not in any way in-terrsect.
If your boss is straining your personal life (like telling you to work later than usual, to change schedule or anything that might interfere with your personal life, if possible, I suggest you find another job.
You're working to take care of your family (if married and/or with children). If boss says NO and husband says YES and family problem occurs, what would be the point of working when the people you're working to take care of is in disarray and not happy?
they arent in the same league at all.
you should respect your boss with everything related to your job, nothing else.
while the respect a woman should have for her husband (it goes both ways) is for absolutely everything (nothing left unturned)
nobody should ever have to choose between the two but if they really must then the husband should be the first priority in her mind.
unless she took the same vows as the marriage ones when she got hired for that job.
