Every time I have gone to look for an apartment, where I’ve only put my name on the lease, I am always asked:
“But why isn’t your husband / boyfriend on the lease as well?”
I wonder if guys ever get asked this when their girlfriends or wives are not on their leases.
I doubt it.
It’s as though a woman can’t be a breadwinner, or it’s something so strange that they feel the need to ask why it is only my name on the lease.
