Silly Question but what does this mean and why?
What if his goal is to do a honest day's work, take care of his home, wife, and children to the best of his abilities?
This sounds a little like the phrase "I'll date a man with potential". I HATE that phrase. To me the person is saying, "I really don't accept you as you are but will if you become what I think you can become".
Maybe that's why families and children are such a mess these days. Everyone feels that they have to "be" somebody. If we live normal, good lives, we failed somehow.
You answered the question....
"What if his goal is to do a honest day's work, take care of his home, wife, and children to the best of his abilities?"
This has nothing to do with his 'potential earnings', or what he does for a living (no matter what, i'll always have his back).......this has to do with the fact that he has an agenda, a purpose in life.
He may not make a lot of money.......but hes doing the best that he can, treating me with love and respect...............thats really all i could ask for.
