But I usually end up coming home and logging back onto the computer until mid-night, while he works his 8hr day and is done with it. He also seems a lot happier with his job, while mine often puts me in a horrible mood. 5 years We make about the same, with me making a little more right now. But that will probably change soon since he has a lot more room for advancement than I do currently. And we've already discussed me being either working just part-time or not at all once we have kids. imLissy 5 years I'm a programmer, he majored in philosophy. He has a pretty comfy job, but I doubt he'll ever make as much as me. Kimpossible 5 years I'm a full time wife and mother - I don't contribute income to the family. But when we were first together I was the major breadwinner in the family. After a few years he surpassed me, and I "retired" to stay at home with the children. Renees3 5 years I do and always have. But hopefully he'll get a raise soon. His career has the ability to make more, but the economy is a bummer on his trade Spectra 5 years He does...he chose the degree that gets you the well-paying job; I chose the degree that gets you a very, very underpaid job. mek123 5 years This year I'll make more, a few years it has been him and he hates it. RoaringSilence 5 years I just finished college 3 weeks ago, while he has been working for 9 years already. But soon he can eat my dust! lol Zivanod 5 years Every time one of us gets a raise, the other seems to top it. I just wish those raises came more often. :P tarabara1229 5 years I'm liking these stats! I make more than my honey, but he's in graduate school with a measly stipend. Chrstne 5 years Him. I am a teacher, he is a programmer. I am college educated with hardly any real $ to show for it. He is not and makes a lot of money. Its irritating, haha. Liss1 5 years We make the same amount Spiderlove 5 years Since my "honey" was just laid off last week, definitely ME.
