  • When it’s actually relevant, such as when you are planning a life together where both of you are sharing assets, commingling finances, otherwise I don’t see a reason why.
    How much income someone makes isn’t always the most important variable, if you make $100k, but owe student loans, have high rent, car payment, and an expensive lifestyle vs, someone who makes $50k, owns 2 properties, has no debt, and more conservative St c, the 2nd person will likely always be ahead of the 1st example... so really, how much money you make, may not even be that important

  • More marriages break up because of financial issues, than because of sexual issues. At some point, where the relationship starts getting serious, each should have a fairly good idea of the other's income.

  • I would tell them when it's relevant. If we're trying to find out whether we can afford our own place together, or if something happens and I get pregnant (I hope not this young.), I need to know that he can help support me if I have to take maternity leave. That'll help me know how much I have to save, if I need to work overtime to save for taking leave.

    If they ask, I'll tell them though. If we're a few months into the relationship, but it really depends trust. My ex made it a competition. He had to be better than me. He's an ex for a reason.

  • I never felt explicitly compelled to reveal my exact income to my partner. I’m pretty sure he found out only after we moved in together.

  • My opinion would be - if it’s a pretty big disparity between the two maybe wait slightly longer. If you know that you care for that person, then you should let them know and be e yak in that relationship. They’re probably the closest person to you, so for better or for worse you should want to support them.

    If you earn a more normal amount that you would guess is close tho their figure, tell them when you feel comfortable around them. Don’t hide it

  • I feel it's not really important how much you make until you start a serious relationship (move in together) or get married. Otherwise they don't have to know but it's up to you to disclose

  • Shouldn't be anything withheld from your partner if you are tr7to grow as one. That's anything! A true partner is your best friend. So don't you share every little thing to your BF? Only if you in a relationship that's trying to grow and build. My opinion! That's what I'm looking for. ..

  • Asap. First day of dating them. Thing is I currently have no income and live with my parents. I lay all those cards on the table and if that's not for them, they can leave.

    • Also... if I did have a large income, I would not mention it at all. Basically I don't want someone to judge me based on the amount of income I have, especially a partner.

  • I don't unless I absolutely need to (shared expenses). I can feed myself, cloth myself, pay my own rent, etc.. nobody needs to know what I make.

    The gold digging from women these days is fuckin' REAL!

  • These days it's a requirement that you must state your income and savings so far to women. Waiting later on just doesn't cut it anymore. Women these days are so demanding of gold.

  • I think only two have ever known exactly what I made at the time.

    Whoever I go out with figures out very quickly that I make a lot of money, but not so much that burn it.

  • Reveal? As if it's a big big secret. Well, it is, in a way due to data protection laws.
    Now that you mentioned it, how about never? I'm not a fan of common finance.

    • You should.

    • It’s not my business what he makes. He makes enough to support himself and extra

    • If he is decent enough to live a bit luxury then i agree with jesslin that there is no need to ask.

  • Is that some information that you just need to get off your chest?
