OMGHi2U Do you care if your spouse makes more $$$ than you?

Wait for the poll, you thread-previewing weiner.




This is inspired by the name changing thread. So, do you feel emasculated or downtrodden if you make less money than your spouse? Does it cause any issues for you?

Personally, I know my wife will be making much more money than me, and I can't wait!

It's cool, I dated a girl for 3 years after high school, her dad was a physician. He would fly us to Nantucket to have dinner, and fly right back.

I never had to buy a thing, in three years. It was a pretty cool feeling, especially while I was paying for college tuition.

I make good money.

My wife out-earns me by a significant margin. To me, that's a win

I'd love it. Money isn't the end-all, be-all but it can make your life more comfortable if you're not stupid with it.

I'd rather keep working, but I think it's best if one parent is home with kids until the youngest one is in first grade... and I'd consider being the one to stay home which would be financially easier to do if wifey made more than me.

I have no problem with it, as long as there's an understanding...

My last girlfriend made over $300K a year and I made about $50K. It became a problem because she was used to a much higher lifestyle than I was and she expected us to go equal on everything which I just couldn't afford.

That, and she was a psycho bitch.

I'm all for equality, but honestly it irked me when my fiancee/wife made more than me (only for a few months, then I got a raise)

We're pretty close base salary-wise. He makes much more with Overtime though, and he works a lot of it. Sometimes my checks are bigger than his, but usually his are.

Hopefully I'll be getting this new job and then I'll be the true breadwinner.

my wife makes about $15k more than me. Though I wish I made more money in general, I don't mind that she is the money-bunny. She is smart, very cute, and works hard (no jokes or puns, please ) and she deserves what she makes, and more. We share it all anyway, so no biggie.
