There is an epidemic of “successful single woman syndrome”. While it may appear on the surface that men are simply threatened by them, there is more to this than meets the eye.

Success is not only measured by money, it comes through hard work, long hours and sometimes extensive travel. In order for a relationship to work it takes the same level of commitment, unfortunately that is not always possible especially if both partners are equally busy. This can lead to trysts with maids and nannies not necessarily because they are more attractive than their spouse but due to the fact that they are always there and filling the traditional role of wife, raising the children and/or looking after the house.
It is not all doom and gloom for business minded women provided that they don’t seek their professional equal. There are plenty of men who wouldn’t mind looking after the home or tending to the kids.
