Talked to a female co-worker about family life the other day and she said that she's angry at her husband. She's currently making 100k a year and found another job that makes 50k more year but her husband won't allow her to accept it. The reason is he doesn't want her to make more money than him. He feared that other men will lose respect for him because he makes less money than his wife. I pretty much just told her that his selfish reasons aka invalid insecurities are childish and very stupid!  :idiot2:

That's crazy! I agree with you. Also, they don't have to let others know who is making more. It isn't anyone's business anyway.

Even if others know, who cares as you (husband & wife team) are adding more resources to your family as whole. I just think her husband is very selfish, childish, and insecure with his idiotic reasons...

When it comes to my wife and I, we make about the same money but if she happens to find another job that pays more, I would say YIPPEEEEE!!!  O0 O0 O0

Plus, I wouldn't mind sharing that info with others either like family members/friends/co-workers or even complete strangers...be cause things like that make me proud as we are a team... 8)

There may be more to the story than this, on why the husband objects.  I wouldnít necessarily judge too quickly since itís one-sided....but thatís just me.
