    Should A Husband Be Worried If The Wife Started To Earn A Bigger Salary Than His?

    No. No matter what relationship therapists or doctors or "professionals" tell you, your marriage should never be based on one's income. As long as you respect each other by doing your part to keep a happy healthy marriage and orderly home, her salary will mean absolutely nothing.

    Not at all. It's pretty common for women to earn more these days, at least in North America. Some men are even staying home to take care of the kids instead.

    I think the husband should be thankful instead of worried.
    I mean, a little more extra income should be a good thing no matter who makes it.

    My husband would love it and is looking forward to that potentially happening when I'm finished with school!

    No he shouldn't be worried. If the couple in question is happily married, what difference does it make who has the biggest paycheck, as long as the bills get paid.

    i wuld love to have wife who earns more :-)...well why should husband worry...after all it is one team..more money coming in would benefit offspring and family..i think husbands must learn to be proud of one's wife than letting male ego get in the relationship...

    It depends upon the character of his wife. If wife is having ego then he should worry. Otherwise no need to worry for that.
    The wife who wants to  Support his husband should never be worried for that and also who loves her husband too much should also not worry.

    Not at all, become a team with eachother and ignore those thoughts, have fun instead. My husband and I switch off, sometimes I make more sometimes he makes more not trying to compete with eachother is the best idea. Enjoy the excitement with eachother of bringing in the money when you can its hard to find a job for manmy I know. Have fun, hope its helpful

    He should not be worried about it. A married couple should support each other and be thankful for each others achievements.
