i agree that its a cause of concern for you definatley but dont let this guilt feeling encroach on ur mind n heart which would further affect ur relation. these days where in we talk about man n woman equality i think you shouldnt feel bad so much.juz take it positively.take it as an inspiration and try to work harder and achieve the best ...dont talk about it always she may not like it..take care and all the best..may god bless you always..

You should thank to God!! There's no need to be ashamed, the quality of a person doesn't depend on his wages, but on how do his job well done, it's a responsible value that credits to one person, so it's not a scale to get ashamed ... It's good things to support your family finance in future, and meanwhile you can earn money by doing side job to support your finances too ... Well i'm not sayin all woman doing this, some woman who has money in their arm won't share it to her husband, they say this joke to their husband, "Your money is our money, my money is my money!" it's only a joke, but i dunno, hope you have a great wife in future Cheer up

Hello again, you seem very concerned with work and woman, but well for some it can be the start of unhealthy arguments, some men thinks that their pride are being stepped on when their partner earns more, but I hope in your case you will not.

? What is wrong with you? I definately dont mind if my woman earns more than me. Where is it written that man MUST earn more than woman. I think your ego is too big. Please dont let this be an issue in your relationship. Be happy with ok?

If my wife earned more money than me I would actually be ecstatic! We are married after all and share everything so what's hers is mine and vice versa. It would be of tremendous benefit to both of us and pride would not even come into it! Why be ashamed? You should consider yourself blessed to be marrying such an accomplished woman! Money is not everything!
