credit: caseykasem I'm currently dating a woman who is much more successful and higher-earning than I am. This doesn't bother me; we have different career goals and the issue of her making more than me never comes up in our relationship, but this is the first time I've dated (and could see myself marrying) someone who makes more money than me. Focus: Who is the primary breadwinner in your marriage/relationship? Sub Focus: For the guys: Would it bother you if your girlfriend/wife/significant other made more money than you? For the ladies: Would it bother you if your boyfriend/husband/significant other made less money than you? Why?
