    Good and bad.

    It's all about balance.

    Whoever is earning more is all meant well for the whole family.

    The only type of men who cannot tahan women earning more than men are egoistic men.

    Nope. We are all working for the sake of the family and can contribute whatever we can. All we need to be is to be useful and contributing in our own way.

    Vice versa? The woman ok with the guy making more money than her meh?

    U know once we guys got money....the wives will worry about we get mistresses here and there. More social outings and leave her 'turning yellow face' at home.

    Heh. I don't even earn 40-50k per year.

    It's not the issue of "earning more than me" per se, but I'm going to assume that for someone to earn 200k a year would most likely live a different kind of lifestyle from me, so there could be compatibility issues in the first place?

    I think men should bother about how much they earn n not whether their spouse earn more than them.

    Which is worse???

    a) a guy who earns $10k a year while his wife earns $20k a yr.

    b) a guy who earns $200k a yr while his wife earns $250k a yr.

    actually although most people will say don't mind, but I think it is not so simple.

    If it is 40k vs 150k, definitely not good. Imagine both of your paying of housing loan, she will probably contribute much more than you. you will feel pressure to equal the contribution. Then she has so much left over money and she will buy things like LV bags for herself, splurge on luxuries which you can NEVER afford for her. For yourself, if you want to even buy a 450D, you have to think hard whether you can afford it.... As time goes by, I think it will sucks being in such a relationship.

    if it is like 150k vs 300k, then I think it is easier as both has a lot of money left over to spend. they can indulge in similar spending habits.

    I think when a couple is married, they should think as one for the family instead of keeping tabs on who paid what. This will just add strain the marriage
