    • I truly love my husband, but honestly, there are times when he must disagree or debate me on things that I know are correct just to enforce his feeling of masculinity.

    • Some men do, some don’t.  My ex couldn’t handle it when I was making way more money than him.  And, he wouldn’t admit it, but he couldn’t handle the fact that I was much, much,much smarter than him.

      Current hubby is used to working with strong successful women and he doesn’t mind it a bit.

    • I haven’t found many that aren’t threatened by a successful woman.  I have no idea what their problem is.
      Lucky you, though Tulip!

    • I agree with Tulip, some are and some aren’t. It depends on the man but, I also think it depends on their generation. My husband is in his 60’s, very opinionated, seems to have a chip on his shoulder when it comes to women. He definitely has issues with strong women. My dad on the other hand was a very loving, calm, docile type of man. My mother was domineering in their relationship and he didn’t seem to mind. He was a real sweetheart.

    • I also agree with Tulip and Chocolatier some men are and some men are not. But I do not feel that it is generational

    • Its interesting that you mention the age, Cynthia, as I have noticed myself that some older men..45 and beyond, have a real problem with women, maybe it is that “women should be seen and not heard syndrome.”

      The younger men of today are a lot more open, honest and forthright about things as young women today will not settle for anything less as I observe.

    • I don’t see it as an age thing.  My ex was younger than my current hubby.

      My mom is a VERY strong, successful woman, and I don’t think my dad has ever felt threatened by that.  Dad’s dad respected and liked Mom too.

      I think it’s all in how they are raised.

    • Many are threatened, but some are fascinated by them. I have one who is fascinated and who talks to his family about me all the time.

    • It depends on the man and his level of self-esteem. If he feels successful, then he most likely won’t feel threatened by a successful woman.  An unsuccessful man may feel threatened.

      As a couple, successful mates complement and enhance each other.

      My hubby encourages our daughters to “look at your mama and what she can do.” He’s quite proud of my accomplishments in life.  My hubby is a very successful man.

    • i dont think he feels threatend but more self concious of his short falls perhaps and caught up in time.  some feel embarrassed some are fascinated.  those men who are confident and comfortable with who they are not domineering enjoy challenges of a womens kind and are usually great social company
