I think you're right doc. The working woman created a monster in some ways. From the US to Bolivia, working women have a mentality that thinks if she make money, she can spend it as she pleases. I know many men from different countries and cultures that do not agree with their spouse choices of purchasing. But what's a man to do ? .... money is already credited with being the primary reason for many many divorces. I know many a couple, including my own present and former relationship, that the female side of the couple believes that what the male earns is "ours"... while her own earnings are "mine".
