Marriage/partnerships are a joint thing and there are roles my Wife just takes on board and does,  ...

You have to agree that if society and the economy demand that wives take pat in generating national income then they deserve to be remunerated. that should include pay for work out of house, which results in the husband taking over some o the work in-house. Some men may prefer - and their wives agree - to leave domestic chores to the care of their wives. I know these are few in the West but they are far more numerous in China. Men like to show off their ability to raise money for the whole family. If they so deprive their wives of a stable income of their own, why shouldn't their husbands pay them a salary?

However, I don't see where the state or the law should come into the picture...

I agree with you but I do not think all Chinese housewives deserve to be paid. Many do - like the elderly woman mentioned by me before. I also note the occasional young woman willing to get married so she can stop earing a living. I knew for example a 28-year-old woman with a college degree who was chasing US. American men until a man twice her age showed up and divorced his own wife to marry her. She dreamed of a baby from him and the job of a housewife and mother. I do not now if it worked out fine for both of them6.

Well, once a man was told the following.
Chinese food is most delicious, so have a Chinese wife to do the cooking.
English house is the best, so have an English wife for a nice home.
French art of intimacy is top best, so have a French wife for good intimate activities.
Japanese obedience is known world wide, so have a Japanese wife for good family cohesiveness.
Italian shoes are most comfortable, so have an Italian wife for good shoes
Leave the weekends to find out others, please do not tell them.
