Dating breadwinner wives
Most of these articles suggest relationships in which women make more than their male partners begin at a disadvantage.
The woman being the breadwinner is approached as an obstacle a couple must overcome to aid the general health of the partnership. The year I was born, 1987, women earned more money than their husbands in less than a quarter of American heterosexual households.
