If I complain about something long enough and don’t make different choices, nothing changes except I’ve made the choice to accept whatever I’m complaining about.

I would surmise your wife is fine with what she makes because she gets good feelings from “working”. Some folks are worried about being bored and unproductive, unsure what they would do… reason to get out of bed in the morning, no sense of purpose, you get the idea. So she’s getting what she chooses and it’s human nature to complain. draws attention to themselves and their selflessness.

I am not a victim, I can make healthy choices.
