BTW, I can relate. Glad you are there for your son.
if she is going to cheat it will be because she is a cheater, not because she makes more money.
You're a good man, Strange....which is way better than just a Strange man.
Wife makes more and has for awhile. She also works harder. I'll soon be retired and she no doubt will keep working. Of course I've always dated smart women, 2 college gfs are/were successful lawyers.
Unfortunately, mine spends more than I make. j/k.
Same scenario here. She actually made more than me prior to our kids, as I was trying to get a business off of the ground
When I was in my early 30's I drove a 1963 Ford Falcon because I loved the car. But, it afforded me the opportunity to get to know women who wanted to get to know me without the trappings of finances. (I made a great living.) Later, I figured out that my approach to money was a part of who I am. My goal was never to become rich, but to get to the point where the accumulation of wealth was unnecessary. There is a vast difference. I chose to, then, live below my means which meant I always "felt rich" because I was not chasing anything.
My personal challenge was that I like travel, food and wine, and nice things so I had to find a balance between living a fulfilled life and getting out of the money game. I had two pieces of great fortune. The first was that I had a very fulfilling career where I had the opportunity to make a difference in people's lives. Even better, I fell in love with my soul mate who saw things much as I did. As a result, much of my life I made more money than she, but, because of her contributions, I was able to "retire" at 47 to volunteer, coach, or work at other stimulating jobs on my own terms.
For the last 10 years she made a lot more than I because I made very little. Yippee. Now, we are both retired and happy, happy, happy.
to answer the specific question, my wife earns more than i do (including my love, respect, and admiration)... i happen to bring more money into the household, but that is not nearly as important...
You're a chic's dream
yeah, not so much... i mean i posted that overly sappy reply and she doesn't even read these boards! thanks for the thought though...
My wife makes more than me its a steady job and it allows her to socialize with co-workers which is very important. This allows me to pursue my own businesses that may or may not be home runs. Plus I have to say that I am much more efficient in keeping the household in order and dealing with kids.
I am a strange man as well. No matter what you have to be for your family, you have to find time to be true to yourself. Often strange, but never a stranger.
It fluctuates, she did for a few years now I'm back on top....kind of like our sex life
