This topic is going to educate lovers or couples how to behave when one is richer than the other.You have worked hard for as long as you can remember. You’ve clawed your way to the top. Money is not an issue for you, and you enjoy spending it just as much as you enjoy earning it. You’re hell proud of your success, and rightfully so. However, there is no denying that money can and will be an issue if the person you are in love with makes significantly less than you.Everyone preaches about equality in a relationship, but how is that possible when you have the capability to do things, buy things and experience things that your partner can only dream of? You may have more than enough to go around. Heck, you may even have enough to support an entire zip code, but is that really what you want to do?
Do you really want your significant other to grow more and more dependent on you as time passes? Think about the repercussions of this. Your partner may even start resenting you for how much you can afford versus what they make. You will start absorbing their resentment and end up turning it into guilt. Oh, the horror!
This also poses a problem for couples in a relationship within different industries. One may be a doctor and the other, a product manager. Both are very successful and make enough for a comfortable life. However, the doctor may take on the role of the superior player in the relationship, because their paycheck boasts an extra zero.
This doesn’t mean that the doctor works any harder than the manager. It all comes down to the nature of their jobs. The doctor will undoubtedly be able to afford a nicer car, bigger home, fancier vacations and a more expensive wardrobe than the manager, but does this make the manager less of a hardworking person? Nope. Don’t let money destroy your relationship. Just remember to always treat your partner as an equal and to never take advantage of one another.
THE 5 RULES YOU MUST FOLLOW WHEN YOU MAKE MORE MONEY THAN YOUR PARTNER
No matter what your partner does for a living, there is no denying that it is not exactly a walk in the park when they make less money than you. Here are five golden rules on what to do, and how to delicately approach the situation.
#1 Always treat your partner as an equal: First things first. Never, under any circumstances, make your partner feel bad about making much less than you. This is especially true if your sweetheart is a hard worker and is truly passionate about what they are doing. They may slave away at a non-profit organization and rake in peanuts, but if they come home to you every day with a sense of fulfillment and accomplishment, who are you to say anything about what they make?
You of all people should know that it takes more than just a paycheck to make getting up and going to work every morning possible. Just be sure that, should money issues ever crop up, never belittle them or make them feel that they’re not on par with you. With that being said, if they’re sitting on their bums all day then yes, make them feel as bad as you want.
