Breadwinner: (n) a person who earns money to support a family.
It may sound a bit over-simplistic, but when you consider all the various aspects of struggle and conflict, people are often set aside in favor of money–or money has to be put in a second position to give honor to people.
Blessed is the man or woman who can find a way to have money and still love Homo sapiens.
Since rumor has it that “the love of money is the root of all evil,” we might want to agree that this iniquity is perpetuated by shafting people.
So even in a household where a man is working a job and a woman is taking care of the kids, nothing good is ever achieved by the male being the breadwinner if the female feels oppressed, negated and disrespected.
However, we would point to this situation as a traditional marriage or an ideal setup.
Simultaneously, we still look on a scenario where the woman is the breadwinner and the man is the “house-husband” as being improper.
We try to act as if it is a normal situation, but deep in our hearts, we either want a man breadwinner or two breadwinners.
This falls under the realm of whether we think money and its manipulation is primal, or if we seriously consider giving people the right to be human beings, granted grace under a loving God as the directive.
Honestly, I’ve never been that concerned about the breadwinner.
I’m more interested in how the baloney is handled.
