Default Does your wife or g/f make more money than you?

My g/f just got a big promotion (financial planner) and soon will be making a lot more than me. I make good money for my age (26) and am applying to top MBA programs, but she'll still be making more than me when I get out of school, and with no debt or lack of income from going back to school. Can't help but feel like I'm the one who's supposed to be "providing" once we get married and have mini-White98LS's. Anyone else in a similar position?

Major bummer now is she was going to move with me when I go to school out of state, but now that's not so likely Guess it's a mixed blessing though because I don't think she would have liked living somewhere else.

Default Re: Does your wife or g/f make more money than you?

my girl makes more than I do. a lot right now to be honest, due to being unemployed right now, but it doesn't bother me that much anymore... i realized that some girls just have a lot of aspirations to do whatever they choose, and to succeed at doing it. Right now my g/f is in school for marketing(working in marketing already too), and she already plans to go to law school after that... I know that there's a slim chance i'll ever make more than her, but on the bright side it take a little stress off of you. and if you ever do have kids, it'll mean that you get to spend more time with them (we have dogs, not kids) which is rewarding in itself. All in all, i like having a girl with aspirations, it's SO much better than having a girl that sits on her *** all day while i'm working and spends my money while doing so..

I make almost twice as much. Which is complete horseshit in my opinion. Shes underpaid even for a teacher.

She will make more than me when I quit my job and go back to school in a couple months. Doesnt bother me except for the fact that we will both be poor.

sooo how much do you make?

I'm sure Meg Whitman makes more then her husband, but her husband is no slacker either. Talk about a stacked househould.

OP, what's the big deal. So you're not the one wearing the pants. Should that mean you go get all depressed about it? Just be happy for your lady and continue to try and be successful.

BTW why are you going out of state for an MBA program? Literally all schools everywhere offer an MBA program.

Without going into specifics, how much does your girl make as a teacher.

Now I always thought all teachers were underpaid, but I found out my cousin was making $65,000 a year.

Now that may not sound like a lot, but factor in that she only works less then 9 months a year. So if she were to work say a normal 12 months like us normal folks (which she can opt to work - summer school etc. - and she has in the past) she will be making roughly $75 - $80k. This has not even taken into account all of the benefits (a ton of days off for holidays, vacations, etc).

Yes some of you will say a teacher's job is hard and its demanding. That is true, but so are most jobs out there. Usually its higher pay and lesser benefits or higher benefits lesser pay. In this case, my cousin gets both.

My wife out-earns me by $30-40k. And she may get a bump soon that would put her about $70k-80k above me!

But Ross only makes 12/hr...

My GF makes about 10% more than me, but I'd be fine regardless of her salary. Somehow, she has hardly any money in her savings though.

OP has a very attractive GF if I recall. Pics?

Ask yourself this, would you rather have her make more money then you or be unemployed for life and relies on you to pay for everything?

Spouses that pull as much or more income then you are a blessing, enjoy it
