Let Me Be Your Suga Mama


The days of hubby bringing home the bacon are fading to black as wives increasingly are becoming the bread winners of the household.  Jay-Z himself can attest to the fact that B brought home $87 Mill of their collective $122 Mill made between June 2008 and June 2009.  With this increase, men are the ones reaping economic benifits from tying the knot.  I can't tell you how many times my co-pilot in this thing called relationship has told me he has no problem letting me be his Suga Mama.

"Survey Says Men Marrying Up" Highlights:
  • Gender role reversal due to greater education and rising income of women (Yup, she's the head of the household and hubby wears the apron)
  • In 1970 4% of wives brought home more cheddar.  That rose to 22% by 2007
  • In 2007, 28% of wives are more educated than their husbands.  In 53% of marriages, both husband and wife are equally educated (They probably met in freshman orientation, or at some frat party, and just hit it off).
  • Unemployment has hit men much harder and in 2008 men accounted for 75% of the decline in employment.  But on the bright side, women are making up half of the workforce.  (Part of their evil plan to take over the world... bruh-hahahahahaha)
  • There's a marked decline in married adults because of the rising rate in divorce (Duh!!  But they definitely made this a point in the video lol)
  • January is the most popular month for divorce because the credit card bill was sky high from Christmas and the wife, since she makes more, said I ain't paying this $h!t just because I'm BALLLLLLLINNN'. Ok the video didn't say that was quite the reason why (just my 2 cents). The video says it's because the family didn't want to ruin Christmas with discussion of divorce AND what better way to start a new year than with an untying of the knot.

  1. What the video doesn't tell u is that although the women may be making more money these days the mans role still has never change. Either he is a provider or he aint ish. Where are guys wearing the aprons at taken care of the house. There aren't any. Even when he makes less his money is still going more towards the home. Women tend to spend money on more frivilous things so the responsibility of the house hold is still his to bare. Even though theres an increase there are still many men who hold done the forte.

  2. Champ, I believe you may be the creme de la creme of men who take care of home... but i know plenty men who are living in their second childhood spending jus as frivilously on things they couldn't afford cuz they had no money before. I know plenty women who take care of home, the kids, and him...
