Yea - I probably will be. The job I'm shooting for pays almost 80,000 a year. It's not 6 figures but if I get good enough it could be.
I'd like to make a good amount of money some day, so I can have a good amount of cash in for the kid's college funds. Don't want a big house, just something comfy. Financial stability is a big thing for me, only because I grew up without a lot of it. I hate feeling like I can't take care of myself or family money wise.
I essentially like the role of being the provider - that's my inner guy I suppose lol :P
So it wouldn't bother me at all if he makes less. Even if he wanted to be a stay at home dad - I'd be totally fine with that.
The only thing that would bother me in this respect - is if he has no ambition. It'd be nice if he had a hobby of some sort / interest he was pursuing. Not just sitting around.
But if I get my desired career going then it's whatev. If I don't then he'll either be making more or we'll be making around the same. Even if I'm still making more than him then, then whatev - however, if we got kids and our home can't be supported off of one income, then I'd have to restrict anyone being a stay at home parent :P
I've seen my uncle struggle with this so much that it's just illogical to do so.
I only want us to have a decent amount of money to be financially good - and then money ain't no thang.
I'd prefer to spend the excess on vacations, taking everyone out - and bonding as a family ultimately, as well as making sure my children get an excellent start to life.
As far as my dude - I just want him to be there, income or not, for all the other essentials in a good union.
Good guys for hubby's are hard to find these days - no sense in putting a price on someone's who's ultimately priceless...
I only worry though, if me making more money than him - would bother him?
