Comfortable? I'd be damn excited. Edit: Unless she expected me to be able to pony up for half of whatever expensive things she wanted to do together. That would blow.

Yeah, I'd be fine with it. I agree with MetroStyles. As long as she doesn't expect me to spend beyond my means in order to keep up with her, I don't have a problem.

Am about to marry someone who has made significantly more than me for the last decade.

Yes. But I'm relatively comfortable with the fact that 99% of people I will ever meet in my life will make more than I do.

I'd be 1,000,000 times more uncomfortable dating a woman who makes significantly less money than me.

You're over-thinking it.

I wouldn't be comfortable doing this. I know I'm a terrible mess of a person so the only reason a woman would be remotely interested in me is because I can pay for dinner and alcohol. If she's the one making the big money then there's no reason for her to hang with me.

I wish i could marry someone who makes as much or more then I do!!

I find the responses, including my own, interesting because I have a co-worker who tells me that the men she dates often have a hard time dealing with the fact that she makes more money then they do.

Is she hawt? Does she have a nice personality? Does she indulge my sartorial and alcohol splurges? If yes to at least 2 out of the 3, then no I have absolutely no problem and actually dream of such a thing.

The personality thing is actually most important because I know plenty of girls that would get sick of making so much more than the guy and would probably look down on him/cheat on him because of this.

I did this about two years ago. I love her, regardless of money, so everything works out. It doesn't really matter unless you let it matter. Be honest, talk about it. Tax time is always a bit funny, especially the first time. If need be, fuck it out.
