In episode 1 of Man Up, we’re going to be talking about what to do when your wife makes more money than you and you feel insecure about it and what the heck is social value?
Masculinity for the Intelligent Man. I am David Tian, Ph.D., and this is: Man Up.
Welcome to episode 1 of Man Up, our first ever show. Nobody knows how it’s going to go but it’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Got sucked into the internet marketing world for a little too long and now it’s back, I’m back to do real content and have it coming out on a regular basis. That’s the hope, anyway, and we’ll see how it goes. So I’ve got questions for each of these shows. The idea is to answer one or two questions. We’ll start off with a question from Jay’s friend. Jay is writing on behalf of his friend, forwarding messages from his friend. There are three separate messages, I’ll piece them together.
Let’s see here: Basically, my wife makes more money than me and she wants out of the relationship now. And then he writes, how the hell am I supposed to compete with making that much money? She makes six figures easily without a degree and the only way I can compete is when I get my degree in one year. Fuck, I’m feeling low. It’s a blow to my ego as a man especially when the woman makes more money than the man. So here is the rest of it, so the background here – I’m not going to read the whole thing, it’s a very long email – but he says, I know I should put a higher value on myself but in today’s society, the value of a person is determined by their income. It’s hard to move on from my wife when her value is so high right now. I’m just so confused. She wants to make it work and part of me also wants to, but I have this feeling that I can’t compete with her value and she will more than likely leave me in the end. The other part of me knows I should work on myself then I may find another woman to make me happy but it’s hard to find a woman of my wife’s value, beauty and intelligence. Can you help me?
Okay, so Jay’s friend, this is actually a very common issue for guys who are following what came out of this thing called ‘The Game’ - this book called the ‘The Game’. That was my start about 10 years ago, getting into pick-up and that whole underworld of PUAs and cold approaching and all that.
