Under such a setup, a man cannot have any meaningful authority over a woman, and in many – if not most – cases a wife will come to feel a great deal of contempt and resentment. How can such a humble, lowly man possibly provide her the comfort and security she craves? He is barely better than a child, and doesn’t even begin to compare to a superior at work.
Therefore, many working women will instinctively feel more attraction for their superiors at work, and it is not uncommon for affairs to ensue. In the United States, it is only strict sexual harassment laws and corporate (and military) non-fraternization policies that prevent this from becoming an outright epidemic.
For most men there is little that can be done about this, and the ordinary man can only hope that his wife has enough common sense and decency to overlook his degraded position as husband — a feeble consolation at best. However, for some it is possible to restore some authority, but only by merging the office of husband with that of employer; in short, one must hire one’s wife in order to establish something approaching the natural definition of marriage. Although this may seem like an odd solution to contemporary ears, some of the best marriages I have ever known of employ exactly this method, and it is far closer to the old definition of marriage than what is currently seen as a “normal” marriage.

If you are so insecure about your masculinity that you need to place your wife in a subservient position this badly, you probably have a tiny penis.

I'd "love" to see his job application for the "wife" position. In his case, my opting for "sewage worker" instead would be more fun.

Ahh, yes, another misogynist using the old, "What women really secretly crave is a man who will exercise authority over her" to justify his twisted viewpoint.

Oh, I get it you. Your wife is smarter, makes more money, and has left your whinny, inept ass.

Well, since you obviously can't earn a woman's respect, I suppose your plan would be the best possible solution for shoring up your fragile ego.

Translation: "We need to keep them wimmins at home so's other guys won't be havin' their way with them."
There's a reason that chastity belts went out of fashion.
But frankly, I can clearly see why any woman in a relationship with this asshole would rather get it on with her boss.

Hire? You mean pay us for all the unpaid labor you expect from us after we get home from our jobs? Sorry, I still prefer a man who will split the chores.

Hmm... how can I put this nicely?
Yes, that should do it.

look, if people want to fuck eachother, they will. if one party isnt interested, then they *probably* wont. women are not sex-fueled fuckbeasts. they are people. and as a generality, they have better self control than men do.

A better solution. Since there is no real reason to asume that men are superior to women, why not rubbishing the authority of men over women?

Who the heck craves "comfort and security" these days? What century did you come from?
Sexual harrassment does not include two person being attracted to each other and acting on that attraction, stupid. It's one person taking advantage of another person.
