Who makes more money in your relationship?

 In our house, I make more than does my DH, but it's only about $1k/yr more, so it doesn't really seem like it, and he wouldn't be bothered by it if it were a lot more.

Who makes more money in your relationship? Does it bother the one who earns less?

He makes just 50 cents more than me hourly, but I only work 12-24 hours a week and he works 50-60

My SO does. Right now I'm a SAHM too, but I may have a part time job soon. Even with that he'd make a lot more than me.

My husband makes a little more than me, but not much. I have a higher degree than him, so eventually I'll be making quite a bit more than him. It doesn't matter to either of us who makes more.

DH has always made more money than me, by a lot. Especially now that I am a SAHM. Even when I go back to work after getting my degree...he will STILL make more money than I will.
