          Man Says He’s the ‘Breadwinner,’ Girlfriend is ‘The Housekeeper’


          January 31, 2017

          Josh, who admits he’s a traditional man, says he has very specific and high demands for his future wife, Rebecca, who he has been dating for over two years. He says he is in the process of teaching her wife skills so he can marry her one day.

          “Me breadwinner, her, the housekeeper,” says Josh.

          “He’s going to have to treat me and talk to me like a child because he needs to teach me how he wants it ran,” Rebecca says of how Josh speaks to her.

          Rebecca says Josh wants to be “the captain of our family,” and requires her to check in before she leaves the house. “Sometimes, I feel like a prisoner in our home,” she says. “As soon as I get home, he questions me and asks me where I was or why it took me so long.”

          However, Josh claims he’s just helping Rebecca, not controlling her.
