Women's suffrage was a success thanks to courageous women in the 1800's, followed by many women in subsequent eras demanding and succesfully obtaining, for the most part, equal treatment and pay in US.

Gone are the days of barefoot and preagnant, along with the Leave it to Beaver, "June what's for dinner" way of life. Our economy is built on 2 income households, few women have the option NOT to work.

For you single women out there, would you give it all up, the job, the independence and all the trappings if given the chance to marry a strong and succesful, but painfully old fashioned man? He would love and cherish you, be kind, affectionate and attentive to the children. He would also insist on bearing any burdens and making all the important decisions for the family. He would want a wife to be obedient and supportive, You'd be expeced to keep a tidy house and have dinner ready with a smile when he gets home.

Just curious how many women out there want to meet and marry a provider and a "daddy" figure versus a partner, and equal contributor.

Women do you want a man to take care of you?
I've got a man to take care of me: my dad.
When it comes to a marital partner, however, I prefer one who's more of an equal.

Maybe women who seek "daddy figures" to marry don't have awesome dads like mine, who love them unconditionally and are always ready, willing, able, and happy to help them in an emergency, no questions asked.

Somehow.....I don't believe you, so what's your story? I'm guessing you're a single guy, being as I'm so super perceptive...so how old? In a relationship? What's your deal?

If you can answer those questions...then I'll answer yours..

I don't have an awesome dad but I still don't want a "daddy" figure! So, you're an old fashioned fart who would ask something like that to single women in CD if they would like one such as you. Wow.

Hhm, a man don't have to "painfully old-fashioned" like 1950-60's old way for him to be affectionate and such.

I think the OP is the opposite. "Obedient" isn't a word thrown around very much anymore, and old-fashioned men don't typically use terms like "daddy figure" or refer to themselves as "painfully" old-fashioned

I was trying to call him on it but he's not fessing up. With that being said, even though I'm sure a lot of women including myself have moments during which they wish they could just not have to work and focus on taking care of their kids, families, or themselves, I don't believe that most women today would be happy to relinquish every bit of control and not want to be included in decisions affecting them.

Even if a man told me he wanted to take care of me financially I would still want to be treated like an equal, and have an equal partner. And I don't believe the 50's were as idyllic as people think. People had problems then just as they do now. I don't know anyone personally who wants a daddy in this day and age, but eh, to each his own..

THANK-YOU!!! That's what I mean! I want to treated like an equal, I don't mind being supportive but that "obedient" part really get me. OP should ellaborate when he used that word.
