I have been the bread winner before and my dh was fine with it, he stayed home with the kids till he found a job, it only was a few weeks but it didnt bother him.
I earn more. It drives him insane. I am certainly not going to earn less cause of his insecurities. But, we fight about it a lot.
I made more than DH when we got married. He makes more than I do now (not by much) but that's because I chose a career change that required a different degree (advertising administrative assistant to special ed teacher) that I'd wanted to do since I was little and couldn't afford to do until I had the advertising job. If DH had been the type who would get upset if I outearned him, we wouldn't have gotten married.
No I wouldn't.
Of course, I would never be married to a man that felt that way.
