Salaam

Honestly, i thought much about 4:34 and i read the rendition of this verse in QXP again and again but...
[Men are the Protectors and Supporters of Women]

Q-1:
*But why? I am trying to understand it in context of today's world. OK till the time when women had no opportunities
it made sense. But in today's modern world they have the same opportunities as men. I mean a woman is allowed to go out earn the same amount of money in an 8 hour job which a man can
earn. Then when both of them bring money back, man is made to spend it all on his wife and children and wife is suppose
to keep all for herself. How is it fair?
Please do not take it wrong, I am trying to understand it.

(*i copied this text from one of websites, it was very close to my question, i edited the original question a bit to be more polite)

Q2:
Why men? I read some articles that say 'because of his more physical strength", but even this justification (physical power) seems sexist, chauvinistic and discriminational.

...............................

Q3:
There is no explicit role for woman in the Quran when men are Qawwamun, is there? Even being mother or taking charge of household matters is a choice and these are optional for them, again, how is it fair when men obliged to provide women while women have no explicit obligation in the Quran?

Thank you for your guidance.
