Should The Man Always Pay?

Yes, I believe he should always pay.  Men are created to be the protectors and providers and by always paying shows he takes that role very seriously.

I just heard that most men like the women to pay at least half.  They are becoming more and more selfish and falling farther away from wanting to protect and provide for a woman. {Part of the problem exists, I believe, because women don't want to be protected and provided for anymore.}

A new study said that when household jobs are split between men and women, the divorce rate is 50% over those who have clearly defined roles.  These roles are that a woman's main job is to take care of the home and the man's is to provide.

These are ideal situations and I know life isn't ideal but we should always strive for the ideal.  Life works better for men and women where there are clearly defined roles.  The woman's main role is to be a keeper at home and raise children if she has them {the nester and the nuturer} and the man is the provider and protector.  These roles are clearly spelled out in Scripture and God's ways always work best.

The majority of little girls love playing with baby dolls and mothering them.  If you asked them what they want to be when they grow up, many would say a mommy.  Young women are no longer comfortable responding this way.  They want to be a nurse or teacher, etc. which are all  honorable professions but  being a mom, in my opinion, is the best.

So, what do you think...Do you think a man should always pay?
But if any man does not provide for his own,
and especially for those of his household,
he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 
1 Timothy 5:8
Young woman...To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good,
obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
Titus 2:5
