Re: Double standard on being single I actually WILL agree on that, but only because of my simmering hatred toward trophy wives. Just don't always assume it's the woman who's usually the household lay-around. I know PLENTY of women who bust their asses to support their deadbeat, X-Box playing boyfriends and husbands (though I don't sympathize with them for dating losers). Hell, my wife makes almost twice as much as I do salary-wise and I work harder and longer hours than she does. She's been on Mat' leave for the past year to "raise a household" and I'll vouch that it is not, by any means, and easy job for her.
