When my wife and I were first married, she made more than me and had significantly better benefits.

One day, she asked me if I was upset or threatened by her earning more. My answer: "You'd better earn more than me, or we're in deep doo-doo!"

Personally, I had no problem with it - the more she made, the better.

Postscript: my wife is now a SAHM for our two kids, and I have since promoted to a much better position which gives us the financial ability to do so. God has richly blessed our family.

Count that another man who's truly secure in his manhood. Unlike the whiners.

I guess being a hockey goon didn't pay very much. :)
