Nick Cannon Doesn’t Mind Being The Breadwinner In A Relationship: “If You With Me, You Don’t Have To Work”
Comedian and actor Nick Cannon just told the world he’s okay making all the money in a relationship, and his DMS are about to be poppin.
In a recent interview with Vlad TV, the father of three told an interviewer that he has a more traditional stance on relationships, “If you with me, you don’t have to work.”
“That’s not even on some baby mama stuff, if you with me, you don’t go to work,” he continued. “I want to be a provider. I love taking care of women.”
Even though I consider myself a new-age, independent, modern, ‘I pay my own bills’ type of woman, there was something really soothing about his words. One of the fears I have about having kids is not being able to be home with them because of the necessity of a two income household. We all know raising kids in and of itself is a job, so when I think about ending my work day just to go home and start another evening of working as “mommy,” I get really stressed out. A lot of people would consider Nick’s view outdated, but I believe, if a man has the means to sustain life for both himself and his partner, not working is a great option for women who would rather focus on matters concerning the home. It’s a lifestyle that a lot of modern women won’t admit desiring, out of fear of being labeled a “gold digger.” But if one of the benefits of being a woman living in the 2000s is the autonomy of choice, shouldn’t we all be more open to letting women be vocal about wanting a stay at home life for herself? Just because we can have high-powered careers, doesn’t mean we have to live that life in order to be successful and validated.
