Young women are better than men at 'adulting' in every way—except this one

Article here. Excerpt:

'The results are in: Millennial women are better than men at "adulting."

That's according to financial website Earnest, which conducted a survey of more than 1,000 young adults to see how women match up against their male peers in terms of financial responsibility and acting like, well, grown ups. Young women outperform in every way — except one: Earning more money than their parents.

About 31 percent of young men and young women report that they've hit that milestone.
...
And the future looks promising. Since 2000, one-third more women more women than men have graduated college, according to a Pew Research study. Because of that, some predict they could soon become their generation's top earners and their wages could surpass men's by 2020.'

Well, naturally

Perhaps the def'n of "adulting" varies from men to women.

I define "adulting" as, basically, pursuing happiness in life. Because Millenial men define it differently from Millenial women doesn't make it wrong.

Millenial women outearning Millenial men by 2020 on whole is good. Women will avoid pestering men who underearn them for marriage, etc. Taking the heat off men is a good thing. Fastest way to get a female to stop pestering you to propose to her, etc., is simply tell her, "It's great you make more than I do!" Works every time
