A few figures: $500,000 as a yearly salary for one person provides an average quality of life in Manhattan, a woman capable of earning $50,000, or one-tenth of that, is an acceptably capable stay-at-home-mother in the opinion of an Englishman, $X is the amount one potential husband should earn to provide shelter as well as food to people living under his roof, $Y is the amount left for her personal expenses after a good mother splits her yearly salary equally between herself as well as her children, a sensible person who is not vain spends 4-7% of their yearly income on clothing, $Z is the allowance that a loving partner gives to the trustworthy mother of his children to care for them, as well as herself.
There is a phenomenon in New York called “The Charity Girlfriend”. This phenomenon occurs when a man takes a girlfriend that is incapable of earning an adequate salary for stay-at-home mothering instead of donating to charity, then impregnates her, caring for her as well as the child, keeping her off the streets. Here in the Roman Catholic maternity home where I live, the staff, as well as director Chris Bell, do the same thing, slightly better, however, since they do not have sex with us with no intention of marriage, ever, due to lack of attraction, intellectual compatibility, or basic respect. One great thing that the “The Charity Girlfriend” phenomenon proves is that men knew that promiscuous women have nice babies, even while they still disliked them as potential wives. The Roman Catholic Church knows this also, since they negate the concept of a bastard now.
I spent less than 4-7% of my share of the household income on my clothes recently so my two-month old child from my broken Roman Catholic engagement basically owes me money. I have to take it…New Yorkers also perceive false humility as vanity, a sin. My child is a New Yorker/Pugliese with Italian jure sanguinis, a European. Of course, perhaps I had low self-esteem after the domestic violence that I experienced at the hands of her biological father while I pursued a chaste commitment. Either way, she took it, the money that is, now she is giving it back.
