Have you ever been in a situation where you have to choose between a romantic relationship or your career? The choice to make may not be the same for everyone and whatever you choose should depend on what you think matters more to you.

Twitter user @mzbat shared an overheard story of a couple fighting beside her while she was waiting in an airport. According to her, the guy wants his girlfriend to turn down a job promotion because she’d be making more money than him and he’d be humiliated. I know, WTF, right?

Couple beside me at the airport is arguing over money. He just told her if she loved him she’d turn down the promotion bc everyone would know she’d be making more money than him and he’d be humiliated. Holy shit is that really still a thing? wtf

You’re probably expecting a dramatic exit or the girl slapping the guy, but no, it’s a pure romantic drama with the girl saying she’d “…never do anything to jeopardize their relationship.” GUUUUURRRRLLLL.

omg she’s crying and said she’d never do anything to jeopardize their relationship and he’s like “good then turn down the job” and I just want to punch him

The guy was very persistent about her turning the job down and told his girlfriend that there’s no point of her having a career anyway. He said she’d be focusing on their kids and wouldn’t be working once they get married. Honestly, we’re really confused what year is this guy living in.

He just told her once they’re married and have kids she wouldn’t be working anyway so there’s no point focusing on her career anyway and I’m rekt. I can’t believe this is 2017.

Thankfully, his girlfriend came to her senses and was like “Wait, what?” at the thought of getting stuck with him and his kids.

Dear Brave Airport Lady, if you ever see this, just know that although I’m sorry you went through this (esp during the holidays), I hope that, one day, you look back on this as a defining moment in your life. Never settle. Follow your heart. You are a goddess. ❤️

Women have come a long way to prove that they are more just a girlfriend, a wife, and a mother. While there is nothing wrong with being one, a woman shouldn’t be restricted to be more than what the society thinks she is and can be. It’s also never wrong for a woman to choose herself and her career over a guy who wants her for selfish reasons. You go, Brave Airport Lady! NEVER. SETTLE.
