WIFE RESENTS HUSBAND BECAUSE SHE EARNS 6 FIGURES & HE MAKES CLOSE TO NOTHING

I make 6 figures, my husband makes almost nothing

Advertisements

My husband (27M) and I (25F) just got married after 6 years together. We were young and both making very little money up until a year or so ago so financial inequality was not an issue.

However I have been promoted and given hefty raises over the last 2 years. He quit his job a year ago to pursue his passion which I did support – I wanted to be that person for him.

But a year later he has not made any progress toward a liveable income and I have started making more money. I hate my job. I stay for the money.

I wish I could quit and pursue something I want but I know the money I’m my industry is really good.

All of the income inequality articles I find contemplate one partner being a stay at home parent or the income inequality is not a difference of $100,000.

We also live in a very high cost of living area so while my salary is good on paper, it is not much for a two person household.

I grew up without money and I am terrified of being in a bad financial situation. I am starting to resent him and I don’t know what to do.

Has anyone dealt with something similar?
