 :D :D :D




That is not a problem for me at all.  It all depends on the person.  If he can handle it and he's ambitious like you stated, then it's all good (he's a rider and I'm a roller put us together how you goin' stop both of us  :D --sorry had to pay homage). I can't see myself throwing it back in his face.  If we're compatible, hopefully money will not be an issue.  I'm not an overly excessive spender and have always lived within my means. Two people living on a $225k salary ain't bad. :)  The problem is finding that good brotha  ;) I keed (somewhat)  :D

the bolded may cause problems for any of my future relationships if the guy in uncomfortable with me making more...bc i am an excessive spender (though i'm not hoodrich about it--i buy things when i have a surplus or whatever).  i can see that making someone uncomfortable if i go shopping and buy this and that and dude is just feeling bad bc he can't do the same.

Or even worse, dude is feeling bad 'cause you didn't buy ish for him. :D  It's a wrap!

and you got that from where??  it's funny that MD's statement is the only one that you replied to.. but even with that it isn't like she said homeboy must make six figures in order to get some type of attention from me...

it isn't about the money.. it's about the mindset.. i've always been in a relationship with someone who @ the time that we were dating made or had less money that i did @ the time.. whether they were currently a resident doctor.. teacher..student or whatever else.. i either made more money or had more saved up for whatever reason.. it only became an issue in one of those relationships and that's because the guy wasn't honest with me or honest with himself.. his insecurities manifested because of what i was doing with my life..& the goals that i was embarking upon.. and to me that's simply childish

if your partner is achieving and you feel that you are not.. let her/him be an inspiration for you to do better.. but i digress...


So is there some high society dating network amongst young urban professional where you all plan to get your equals?? Based on what I am hearing there is a strong likelihood you all will not date folks that earn a fraction of your income. Is money so important that you would be willing to forego a perfectly good handsome educated man that makes half what you make in order to hedge a potential loss from you being out of work? That specifically is addressing MDlaw statement.

I mean from what I here sistagirl you would rather be with a herb making equal money than a stud making 50K a year.

i meant @ hls.. perhaps the young ladies that are weathly by inheritance are "likely annoying" there... i said there's an exception to the rule but perhaps there isn't an exception "where you are"

:D  u are an ass but u know the point i was making..there's always an exception to the rule :P.. maybe not where you are though :D


women with trust funds are likely annoying. I'll pass.

I don't get this.

well then tell those brothers making 50k to go back to school so that they can have more earning potential.. or tell them to man the @#!* up and realize that in this world there are plenty of women..blk women out there that are doing the damn thing and they aren't going to stop doing the damn thing and achieving their goals because Willie's feelings are hurt because he's making less than she is..it sounds like a personal problem to me.. insecurities because he's not reaching his own earning potential.. or maybe he is and can't accept the fact that the woman has surpassed him...

either way though.. one would think that in our generation that the perception would change and these busters still didn't exist that thought it was a threat for said woman to bring home more money than the man..

so how about this? the guy makes 50k the woman makes 40k but she's wealthy.. does the 50k guy leave her because she has wealth passed down from generations? or does she have to prepare to be in a house with a bunch of cats or look solely for men that have the same economic background that she has?


MdLaw it's great to see you back! ;)

lol, you guys are whack. I want a woman that is going to make more or equal as me. In what world is it practical to be less wealthy collectively because of ego?

If you are making $130k and the wife is making $150k, then that's cool. Both of ya'll are making more than the average couple and if either person ever got sick then the family would still be bringing in 6 figures. Ya'll are on the way to building wealth.

But if you are making $50k and she's making $130k. That's not building wealth, that's you relying on her income. She the breadwinner.

 :D hilarious... date a teacher then.. or an administrative assistant... or a receptionist.. .or a woman that doesn't work.. because lawd knows we don't want a woman to bring an uproar and cause a paradigm shift because she's making moves and making more money than you are  ::)....

thus bringing out some insecurities in the type of men that can't really handle it... i certainly know that not all men are like that.. but i've seen a guy or two get uncomfortable when i  was the one that planned and paid for an expensive weekend getaway... and i've reached the point in my life where i am not going to nurse anyone's ego because i make more money.. esp when that was blatantly obvious in the beginning of the "courtship"...

its hard to construct a decent argument if you are bringing in every other exception in to the mix. I am very liberal nontraditionalist type brother and i would not be prepared for a woman my age to make twice my salary. Not saying i would be bothered, but i sure as hell would deem it awkward

why would it be awkward?
Exactly. It has been that way since God knows when. So all of sudden us men should seamlessly adapt to a new paradigm? I think not. Alls I am saying though is the transition will not be all that graceful.
bc it goes against society's "male as breadwinner" construct i'd imagine

yeah..there are some gross generalizations on this here thread lol

even a very liberal minded educated man in his late 20s or early 30s would shudder at the idea of a young lady he is dating bringing in close to 200K a year.

Incorrect.

as usual.... i agree with my triplet sisters  ;) pikey and mcb...

this thread is hilarious.. but my two favorite statements are "things could get real ignorant real quick if a person is in your age range" and.. "during an argument a woman will bring up how much more money she's making than the guy"...

it's funny that some guys really think that in moments of dissention..a woman is going to make it her mission to attempt to emasculate her man...

Edit: and unless a woman in Biglaw is dating another attorney.. a successful businessman or a doctor that's done with his residency..a rich guy...or insert another job making 160k or more 9 out of 10 she's going to bring home more money than he does...
