Bruce Campbell: This is this first year since before we had gotten married that the Mrs. has equal or better earning potential. I look at this as a joint effort and have supported her career throughout our relationship. My wife is in retail management and for 12 years, there has been a "glass ceiling" of district management she has been trying to pierce and she has finally been successful in doing so. During that time, I have had to forgo her company during holidays, weekends, evenings, overnights for inventory or ad resets, and generally endured her horrendous hours. Now her schedule is normalized with an added bonus of additional income. To look at our incomes as two separate items makes no sense. Effort towards our career success is borne by both of us.

DreamyAltarBoy: guess some men are insecure in their masculinity.
max_pooper: I drunk what: Yomoxu: Is this the token Fark "in denial" thread?aren't they all?in order for men to feel emasculated they would have to have been masculine at some point in their livesmy wife brings home the bacon in our house, but i don't feel emasculated at alli stay home and breast feed the babies, and sometimes i dress up in a french maid mini skirt to show her how manly i can be, it really gets her motor runningcause we are equal partners, that's why men always have to pay for the bill[www.eonline.com image 293x429]Do you look like this?
Pumpernickel bread: And why is it when women start making a lot of money, they still don't want to pay for anything? I started dating a lawyer, thinking she has money...maybe she will pick up the occasional bill......nope.

akula: If a couple is steeped in "the man provides" thinking, then sure, I can see it as a stress point, but if they see their relationship as a partnership of equals it won't cause a problem.
abhorrent1: Z-clipped: If you were 200lbs and homely, there would be a candy dish of blue pills on the coffee table. Mark my words.I think that would be the case regardless of her income
The number 7 and the letter Q!: My wife and I are in a very similar place. I put her through college and, now that she has greater earning potential (in retail management as well) she brings home far more money than me.Congrats on the glass ceiling breaking. More success to you two in the future.
mxyzplk: I for one welcome our new sugar mamas.
