http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...-male-partnersA study by France's national statistics institute Insee found that three quarters of the country's women who had a revenue and were in a relationship earned an average of 42% less than their husbands or boyfriends.However :In 2011 the average salary of the woman in a couple was €16,700 compared with €29,000 earned by her partner. Only a quarter of full-time working women earned more than their male partners.I wonder what these stats look like in the UK since the overall pay gap is even higher .The difference between single men and women is only 9%, said researchers.

Is this meant to show anything..?

Possibly because for many couples, the next logical step after marriage is children. Therefore, women tend to take a break in their career to raise a family.
Am I meant to be outraged by this?
