I think that's predominantly a male perception that is easily manipulated by females in the battle of the sexes.

Nowadays women can participate in many jobs that men do because pure brawn and physical strength isn't needed as much anymore. Mechanized farming allows for a huge surplus of food and labor saving devices improves working conditions. Because of this men and women have more flexibility in roles. I know a guy who is a stay at home dad and his wife is a high income earning pharmacist. They are happy and well and the kids are well adjusted. This wouldn't be in most situations but there is some flexibility out there for different roles. There are differences in gender but it's hard to generalize completely. Women are better at language and men are better at mathematics but I'm sure there are always exceptions when we are dealing with individuals. Women need to meet male standards to be a firefighter and surely most women wouldn't be able to do so, but there are some women who can.

The area that may be difficult when it comes to gender is the fact that men are usually attracted to feminine women and women attracted to masculine guys so for an emotional connection I find in my experience that women tend to be averse to less than masculine types (again there are exceptions). When men compete for jobs with women they tend to be less chivalrous because women are now competition. A lot of men have lost their jobs in the current economy because many are in jobs like construction but women haven't as much because many work in government and administrative jobs so again families have to be flexible to all kinds of changes irregardless of gender.

Men losing jobs at higher rate than women in recession - USATODAY.com

Personally I like women to be feminine (I love it!) but I won't hold it against them if they get more pay than me and I won't tolerate degrading behaviour against me if they looked down upon me for not earning as much.

Well this is true, I was speaking more from a western perspective...

Arranged marriages do as a whole last longer, but are they happier I don't know. I think there are certain aspects one can take from both types in order to keep a successful marriage.

That would sum up what the book in the OP is about although presented in a more provocative way.

In India, a common reassurance offered to the anxious prospective bride or groom whose parents have just arranged their marriage is 'Love will come with time.' The idea being that the process of committedly building a new life, household and family together generates its own deep mutual affection over the years. I think most people in our culture who've been happily married for a good number of years would find a lot of truth in that; that there's a kind of abiding fondness which results from years of giving your utmost together that's quite different from the nervy-giddy feeling of being 'madly in love,' but in its own way just as pleasurable and satisfying. Of course that doesn't always pan out, but then neither does the hope that being passionately in love today indicates many happy years together. 'Under which system are people in general happier' is probably almost a moot point, because so many of our expectations are culturally contingent (though that's not necessarily the same as whether they're 'high' or low').

Economic contentment is much more about how you plan and manage your mutual ambitions and budget than about how much either of you has to start with, but, I suppose if you're adamant about having a pretty high standard of living and aren't personally inclined towards a career that will likely deliver that, then it makes sense to deliberately seek a partner who's already financially successful. But the notion that merely because you're a woman, better give up at the outset on any hopes of a lucrative career yourself is patently ridiculous.

i do wonder ... while, in theory, size doesn't matter, perhaps there's the sense that it does and that makes the hung among us that much more desirable even if there isn't any measurable increase in sexual pleasure?

for me, in my conception of what is attractive -- which is to say, more accurately, "what looks healthy to us" -- endowment is part of an overall picture of health, as attractive as big biceps or shoulders or abdominals. i think too much in either direction detracts from the overall picture of healthy manhood.

Hung men in particular need to cling to this notion to reduce the competitive pool.

Which is to say happy medium is better than hung.

i know many women and gay men who are, indeed, size queens. i can't think that it's all in their head.

if i were to offer my opinion, i'd say that extremes on both ends offer disadvantages, and while bigger is better from an aesthetic perspective, whilst in the act, it really does come down to the carpenter and not hte hammer.

Yes and yes!

Sure there are size queens though, otherwise the myth wouldn't persist so strongly. But they are a very much a minority among hetero women.
