    Than you?

    For me personally, I would, I would feal like my masculinity was being undermined.

    It would be great if my partner was earning 100k a year - but only if I was earning 101.

    For me I wouldn't care unless the gap was so big that there was a social difference between us, if I get access to the moola then I'm all for it.

    I've been a farmer, a businessman, a cop and a marine during Vietnam, so LISTEN UP.

    No I would not care.

    Thugs and criminals, if they can keep us in the dark they can do what they want with the money, and they don't give a rip about Alabama.

    To be quite honest, I would prefer being better than my girlfriend at stuff I'm good at. I'm not sure whether I'd mind being less good that much, though.

    edit:
    That's generally speaking. On topic: I don't think so.

    No, I don't see why it would be a problem.

    Some girls think the same though. By that I mean they agree the man should earn more. One of my housemates at uni said that she wanted to marry a rich doctor. I said "But you're planning on being a doctor, so surely you want to earn a lot of money?" Her answer was "Yeah, but I want my husband to earn more."

    Women are strange creatures sometimes.

    I'd just be happy to have a girlfriend haha. No I don't think it would bother me. Be more of a relief really.

    No. I'd be glad they were earning lots of money. Why would you complain about having more disposable income? Bizarre.

    Nope it wouldn't matter to me, I see myself as the breadwinner of the family and I'd want to take care of them.

    I feel kind of sad for guys who need to affirm their masculinity like this.

    No, I'm completely comfortable with my masculinity and wouldn't give a ****.

    And as I can't imagine ever being in love with, or dating, some girl that had this kind of backwards ass view... Woo. :awesome:

    Nah it wouldn't be a problem. I'm all for gender equality, and we shouldn't stick to traditional roles that the man should earn more than the woman etc. So yeah i'd be absolutely fine with it

    Far from it, I want them to earn more money than me. I'm hoping to find a doctor tbh because a) she will be well off and b) round the clock medical care to satisfy my hypochondria.
