What happens in situations where women earn more money than their husbands or partners?  Unfortunately, too much of the time when women start out-earning their spouses, they begin to compensate. They try to hide it by putting complete financial control in the husband's hands or earmarking the woman's income to pay the bills so that there's no money left to spend as she sees fit. Other times, the woman feels so guilty about out-earning her partner that she takes on more and more of the housework. Rarely will either spouse admit that the woman is the breadwinner to their friends or family. And more of these families split up than average. Is there a solution?
