I want to find out who the real me is because, at 30, I still don’t know. “It’s not a porn-perfect fanny”.   It’s always the wives in the really expensive cars. My husband and I have taken turns as the highest earner. Earning my own money means I don’t have to justify my shoe habit, and he doesn’t.

There are other reasons why more husbands earn more than their wives that have less to do with structural issues like the gender wage gap. “Men often marry later than women, so there are. Wives Increasingly Earning More Than Husbands Men are increasingly likely to marry women who make more than they do, according to a new study on the changing economics of marriage.

Columnist Amy. There is a maximum family benefit, however, a cap on the total amount a family can collect from Social Security on a single worker’s earnings record (including spousal, children’s and survivor benefits).

The maximum amount is between percent and percent of the worker’s monthly benefit payment at. The Pew Research Project reports that the share of wives whose income topped their husbands’ rose from 4 percent in to 22 percent in But.

Say goodbye, for now, to proclamations that women are "primary income-earners in approaching half of all families" or that "bywives will outearn husbands." The latest government data make. Gina and Paul met when they were both working as graphic designers at a major newspaper.

They fell in love and got married—and Gina got. This is an important social shift with serious implications for relations between husbands and wives, and parents and children. I can say from experience that. According to another book I have read and an online calculator that I have used, my wife could file for her earned benefits at and I could file for spousal benefits with a restricted.

In 4 out of 10 US households, the mother now earns the key income, according to a new Pew study. More women are single mothers, and more wives are outearning their husbands.

Marriage is losing ground in America. According to the U.S. Census, the proportion of married adults dropped from 57 percent in to 52 percent. The increased percentage of wives who outearn their husbands signals the advent of more egalitarian marriages, a development that we should applaud.

But if the experience of African Americans is any guide, the shifting relative status of men and women may also portend a threat to the stability and centrality of marriage in American society. On the other hand, though, quitting your job to be a stay-at-home parent carries a number of potential risks.

And when that parent is dad, the drawbacks can, in at least one case, be graver. But in the last 40 years, marriage rates have increased for the top 10 percent of female earners more than any other group, Michael Greenstone and Adam Looney found in a new report from The.

Then husbands and wives put in longer shifts, creating a species of family called DINS — “double income, no sex.” Finally, families went into debt.

Corcoran also reports feeling less pressure among her fellow alpha earners after attending Fortune’s annual “Most Powerful Women in Business Summit,” where she said house husbands were the rule.

And this earnings trend is more dramatic among younger : Carol Hymowitz.Cluing each other in and deciding on goals together can make both spouses financially more secure and avoid leaving one spouse in the dark after a death or divorce.
