3:50 Suzanne introduces the new song by Kacey Musgraves's 'Breadwinner'

7:25 Many women and men don't understand how the female breadwinner issue will affect their marriages

8:50 60% of Suzanne’s coaching clients are in a situation where the women earn more

10:05 Men AND women don't like when women earn more

11:30 The cultural narrative blames gender "stereotypes” and gender "expectations”

13:15 A man’s ability to earn is inextricably tied to his identity.

13:50 Women do not work out of a desire to provide for their husbands

14:50 When a woman has an all-consuming career, much like Musgraves', her relationships (and children if she has them) take a back seat

19:40 As long as the woman is earning, the man’s motivation will fall away

20:10 Men don’t get threatened by a woman earning more; it simply deflates them. Men and women are motivated by different things

21:40 The male breadwinner norm won’t change because women want men who earn the same as they do or more

22:00 This song resonates for women today because so many women are out-earning their partners
