How would you feel if your spouse made more money than you? And I mean a lot more. What do you think?
Good for her. As long as she enjoyed what she was doing she was happy then that would make me happy. How much money would come second to that. And if she earnt alot then that would help out with finances and what not.
Why would anyone feel any different?
I do believe I read somewhere that in a marriage where the wife makes more than the husband, the likelihood of divorce is high. Supposedly, it's because the husband is socially stigmatized since (again) supposedly he was raised to believe the husband should be the higher bread winner, especially when there is children involved. I think that's where it can be unfair, and it's not something that is openly discussed -- if anything, it's kept secret. All wrong clearly, but it's there.
Then you have the potential of other men looking down on you for not making more than your wife and even women -- which is a whole other mess of wrong.
Things are changing though -- the answers in this thread are awesome (for the most part, lol). If your spouse makes more money than you -- awesome - more money for the pot.
