  • Of course not! We both have home based businesses; I do the bookkeeping for both. Some months I earn more, some months he earns more.

  • NO not at all. I know it sucks that my SO is not making as much as he should be but we never fight about money. As long as the bills are paid we are just fine. we never keep tabs on whose putting more money in the relationship. that will just add unnessesary drama.

  • No. When I worked I made more than he does, by just a little. It didn't bother him a bit.

  • My ex-husband did...even though at the same time while he resented it and complained about his salary, he still relied on me to keep moving up the corporate ladder and make more money.
