This is a spin-off of the SAHM question asked last night.

I made a comment about how I don't know any man who would be willing to support his non-working wife, and a lot of people said they knew lots of men who would be willing to. It baffles me because everyone I know has a strong hatred for "gold-diggers" (male or female) and wants a partner who makes an equal financial contribution to the relationship.

So my hopefully non-wank-inducing question is, would you support an able-bodied, non-working spouse/partner? What is your mentality behind it?

I'm more interested in the second part than the first. I would feel really used and taken advantage of if I was in that position, and I'm curious how other people apparently don't and even encourage their partners to not work.
