If anyone is indeed still stuck in this mindset that they have to be this "perfect" person, they're going to be in for a world of trouble. Nobody is perfect. The "supermom", "superwoman", whatever has her faults and her screw-ups just like anyone else. Most people don't talk about the bad stuff in their lives not because it doesn't exist, but because they don't want to sound like they're whining, nor do they want to drag other people down.

I would consider my mom a "supermom" of sorts. I'm amazed at the work ethic she has and all the things she's able to do, it's something I want to strive to improve on and have more of in my own life. But I've seen her stressed out before, too.

In regards to the financial security discussion, here's the thing that confuses me about women hooking up with rich men for such stability, only to divorce them and then demand so much of the guy's money. If you're supposedly such an independent, smart woman, why do you need to take so much of his money in a divorce? Why not just go strike it out on your own. It can be tough, yes, because there are still struggles women have to go through to achieve professional success, but it can be done if you work hard enough. Let him live with his bundles of money but with no wife, while you go on to your own success and your own happy life, and see who comes out better? Of course, if children are involved when a couple divorces, the money issue is more understandable, but outside of that, that's always struck me weird.

We mostly don't have toddlers, much less perfectly groomed ones. Almost nobody I know cooks on a regular basis, nevermind makes a rack of lamb for the husband on a nightly basis.

I don't know which women they are talking about to be honest.
I can tolerate lack of cooking skills but messiness is a big no-no.

Well, those sorts of women are not truly career-oriented but are just looking for an easy way to an easy life. The other side of the fence is that some wealthy males prefer to use expensive escorts rather than go through the hassle of more conventional arrangements - fewer attachments, less hassle.
