    Who should be the bread winner?

      This is honestly a great question. I'm of the opinion that a marriage is a partnership and both parties should carry equal weight in the relationship.

      i think you and your wife should be one and there should be a kind of understanding between both of you.both parties should contribute according to level of income

    Doesn't matter who brings in the money just as long as somebody does.

    "Bread-winner" - I wonder if there's a contest that lets you win bread. I'd more call it "bread-groveler" or "bread-scrounger".  (Can't the bread fairy just come and drop of it off?)

    I think it is up to the couple to decide what they are comfortable with.

    I don't think it makes a difference either, as long as both recognize that both are working their butts off, whether that be in the home or out of the home.

    What difference could it possibly make who the 'bread-winner' is in the family?

    Be glad you have an income coming in. big_smile

    Legally and traditionally, it is the husband who should be the breadwinner.  This is the reason why they are required to give alimony or child support on any divorce.

    However, it is nowadays considered as a joint responsibility between wife and husband to support their family based on social and moral issue.
