There is no question that in today’s 21st century, more and more women are dominating the work force and proud of it. A household with two working spouses is very normal in today’s society. With women holding down jobs and climbing corporate ladders the way we are in 2014, what are the rules as it pertains to the woman making the majority of household income? Does this give a woman the entitlement of “wearing the pants” in the relationship? How does a marriage in which the woman makes significantly more money than her husband differ from a marriage that is vice versa?

I’m certainly no expert in this category, and I’m not married; however, there are qualities that supersede the amount of money my significant other makes that would determine if he is marriage material. Being that drive, persistence, and intelligence are three of them, I think it would be hard to find myself spending time with someone who doesn’t make enough money to support a future household of mine. Now whether or not he makes more or less than me really does not matter. I don’t think making more money determines whether you “wear the pants.” A man has his role and a woman has hers, and while society has outlined those roles, it is up to couples to define what they each mean in their relationship.

    Let us keep in mind, that in marriage we are spiritual equals and if we love God the way we say we do, we will treat Gods creation accordingly, in other words there is no blueprint that says that even if someone that you are married to, that does not have the maturity to lead himself should
    be in charge of leading a family,the roles in relationships and marriage should depend on the convenience, availability, skills to get a job done in the best interest of the family, even if the roles change from time to time, the main thing is adaptability to circumstances (ie) picking up the ball to help the other partner when the need arises,getting ego out of the equation about gender, this goes a long way in preventing resentments that can snowball into chaos. Try pleasing God by your kindness to his creation, that works all day and night and prevents all egotistical thoughts.
