Forget feminism because a staggering amount of women believe that their man should be deemed 'more successful' than themselves. Errrr....come again?

In a recent interview Tulisa admitted that she doesn't care about dating a man who earns less than her as long as he is happy. But is seems the X Factor judge is mostly alone in her view point.  

According to new research, 83% of British women want their partners to earn more money and be more successful than themselves.

A staggering 4 out of 5 women said that they are attracted to the size of their man's pay packet and his ability to be the 'breadwinner' of the family.

Some experts believe that the social expectation on men to earn more than their partner is actually being supported by women who, despite feminism and advances in pay and equal opportunities in the workplace, still hold on to the traditional 'household hierarchy'. Basically, our bodies are at work but our minds are at home!

But before you write feminism off as a lost cause, it's important to know that the world's biggest Sugar Daddy dating website, Seeking Arrangement, is behind the research. The women polled are members looking for a rich successful man to sweep them off their feet!

Brandon Wade, founder of SeekingArrangement.com told us: "The results show that although times may have changed, women still love to be doted on. Women want to be treasured and to feel secure - a powerful, high earning man can deliver on all accounts. The site's success is based on this traditional romantic ideal remaining as present as ever, with women still looking for men who can heavily provide for them."

Women are great multi-taskers, so why can't we earn our own money, have a successful carreer, raise children and rely on a partner to provide for us? Plus, earning more money and having a solid job doesn't necessarily make you more 'successfull' at living a happy and healthy life.
