What's your opinion???

What would you do if a woman makes more money than you in a relationship, for me I don't think it's a bad thing as much as I'd like to be with someone who makes more than I do. I'm fond of spoiling my man as well.馃檪

My wife has always made more money than me. The gap is much smaller now though. Doesn't bother me at all.
JimboSaturn51-55, M
@thewindupbirdchronicles He can't discuss and get his point across so he resorts to personal attacks. Very childish. Just ignore him.
@JimboSaturn Hence I guessed, I have him blocked already. The stories lined up and 'sree'
@sree251 what a shallow thing to focus on in your weird attempt to tear someone down. You must have a screw loose or something
I don鈥檛 think my partner would mind. It鈥檚 all combined anyway.

I think it would only be an issue if I made enough to buy the things I want, but he didn鈥檛 make enough to buy the things he wants/needs, so he鈥檇 essentially have to ask for my permission/consent to do his thing. That frustration of course would go vice versa if I didn鈥檛 make enough money to do what I wanted/needed. It鈥檚 especially an issue when the person who makes less money has wants and needs that interfere with the wants and needs of the person who makes more money.

I make more money than my husband, and we both prefer it that way. 馃槃 I like feeling accomplished and being able to take some stress off his shoulders, and he likes not having the stress of both of us relying more on his salary.
I'd be happy she did and quite proud of her.

During my three significative relationships there where periods when my partners made or had more money then me.
The first one, on some artistic events and at the final accomplishment of long term professional projects. So while not a permanent income, yes big money when happened.
The second one and as my also bussines parter made as much as me. But she also received periodical important payments for selling a bussiness inherited from her father.
My third one had a significative income from the practice of her profession. Less than mine but ..... she also took care of the bussiness / financial side of my own professional activity as I麓m better in developing it麓s "technical" core. So I can say she stongly contibuted to my income.

That said and while I make / made enough for my and my family needs, I never had prejudices about my partners having high and sometimes higher incomes.
ElRengo70-79, M
Not realy.
Had a long (long) life and not so good luck till found the love of my life in my mature years.
Would have been only one if knew her since young.
sree25141-45, M
@ElRengo If knew her since young, you said. Thank God you didn't. You would have used her like a mule.

Don麓t worry, hopely some day medicine will be able to help you........
OldBrit61-69, M
It wouldn't necessarily bother me. In fact looking back it would have been nice at times that the pressure to keep earning would have been more evenly spread.
Glassysky22-25, M
Whats the issue with this?
These days.. u need dual income to be able to afford a comfortable life anyway

Fine by me. A relationship is a team thing
I was fine with it. Had a period of time laid off where it came together well. I feel it's for however two in a relationship together want to make things be healthy and work. Only they know together.

Hope your man appreciates you spoiling him... I've been spoiled and I've also gave.
Jake96656-60, M
I don鈥檛 care if she does
@Jake966 That's solid
sree25141-45, M
@Jake966 It's better that way, isn't it? It's about time they pull the weight.
Jake96656-60, M
@sree251 it鈥檚 good
As long as egos dont get involved and you both realize youre on the same team, its all good.

Actually less stress for both
exexec61-69, C
My son's wife makes more than he does, but they are fine with that. Both make good money.
@exexec A lot of men's ego feels hurt when the lady makes more, speaking from experience tho
exexec61-69, C
@Eurasia I agree totally. A lot of men have quite fragile egos.
I don't care who "earns more income" - in my world, most of it would still go into the same pot.

I say "most of it" because life has taught me that it's a good idea to hold some money independently of the other in case of financial abuse or events where a joint account may not be accessible.
sree25141-45, M
@HootyTheNightOwl No choice? You mean no trust, don't you? Mother's always tell their daughters: "You've got to be financially independent. You don't want to be caught in a bind; especially, when you have kids. You can't trust men." Believing that your wife is happy with the same pot is one thing, thinking that her mother is as happy is something else. Contempt of a mother-in-law is a big deal. Woke men are like hyenas.
@sree251 I don't give a flying shit what mothers tell their daughters.

All I know is that a lack of access to the household income for 20+ years leaves the dependant spouse trapped in a situation that they might not want to be in - and, if you need to maintain a relationship by strangling off a spouse's access to money... then it's quite clear that [big]YOU[/big] are the one who has trust issues that you need to receive treatment for.

A relationship isn't about strangling your partner to death - but giving them the resources to break you - and trusting them not to do so.
DiabolicalBear31-35, M
I look at things more like what am i contributing to this world and leaving behind what am i making better.
I'd never be in relationship with a woman because I love big black cock sorry 馃様
@Whisp506 What about a woman who has a big black cock?
Nothing. What does it matter....
JimboSaturn51-55, M
@Freeranger Ask Sree lol
I don't have a problem with it.

I have made significantly more in the past than my wife, we put a lot of that towards paying off our house. Now... some months she makes a little more than I do, some months I make a little more than she does.

It is how WE spend it that is important.
My girl is the same way and i love her for it

@Bugbittinbrain oh shit wrong person thought it was the other guy. So being financially independent is important overall, showing that we can be successful is a good thing. The matter of fact is, im not a fast food worker im a maintenance tech on my way to hopefully becoming a jack of all trades if not at least a high voltage technician. And she does her own thing which does make more money right now ill give it that, but that doesn't stop our feelings for each other and she can prove to me that she doesn't have to be over reliant of my finances to support her lifestyle

馃...........I met a couple through a freind many years ago. She was a Pilot for United Airlines and he was a stay at home dad with three kids.........They had a really really nice house and seemed to be very happy together.........
Income differences should not be a worry as long as there is no much difference in status. In some cases we see the wife escalating too high where the husband appears like a wimp.
As long as both people feel they contribute to the relationship and are happy with their arrangements, I don't think it matters who makes more.
sree25141-45, M
@iamBen As long as they feel? The fact is that they don't feel that at all. As such, it matters.
I've always made 4-8x+ of my wife's income when she was working. I would not care if she made more. Would actually be nice change of pace to let her carry the load for a few years.
mayguy46-50, M
Not bad at all indeed. If any man has a problem with a woman as smart and stunning as you earning more money, then he is no man at all.
Men are generally paid more so it makes sense that he leads financially and takes care of the woman.
AngelKrish26-30, M
Woman can earn more and man should not have problem with this....he should support her anyways

It really would have been ok with me had I ever been with someone who earned more.
First part of marriage she made more. Then I did. Doesnt matter. We share regardless.
BackyardShaman61-69, M
It鈥檚 been back and forth for me, I鈥檓 happy either way.
Bearsfan6756-60, M
I think it can work if egos don鈥檛 get in the way.
moonlighting41-45, M
Im cool about it , have no ego
samueltyler280-89, M
I would love it!
Alyosha31-35, M
I wouldn't care.
Havesomefun256-60, M
Zero care about money
chasingThursday36-40, M
I don鈥檛 mind at all
I'd be comfortable with it. I mean, I like to be in a relationship where everyone contributes to making each other's lives better.
MrGoodbar51-55, M
if it's a good relationship there should be no issue with who makes more. If he does have an issue, that's a red flag in my opinion
LookingForSomethingNew26-30, M
I've always made more money in my relationships, so I can't really say this out of experience... but I don't believe I would really care.
Pretzel61-69, M
it happened to me for a while

just wish she had earned twice as much and could have kept me as a stay at home dad :)
Bklynbadboy1231-35, M
I dont mind it at all im tired of being the bread winner all of the time
I wouldn't care. as long as she does what makes her happy <3
I鈥檇 love me a sugar momma..
I鈥檇 happily be a stay home bich
I'm fond of being spoiled.
soulshadow36-40, M
I'd steal her money.
Where do I sign up to [i]more[/i] than double my current income!??!
At the beginning of our relationship I made significantly more, my husband is the one earning all the money now
