Many years ago in our society and culture it seems as though the dating/marriage guidelines were so much simpler than they are today.

We are forced to ask so many questions that were not even on the scope yesterday and it seems just as tedious in connecting with someone wholeheartedly as it is in signing a thirty year mortgage commitment. As a matter of fact, while the results of our bad choices or lack of being aware of the many crucial relationship components time and time again prove disastrous, we seem to not understand the seriousness and far reaching ripple effect of consequence that will be felt in our lives because of our lack of paying attention to these very important compatability factors.

One of these such factors that still stand no matter what time period one thinks of is the ability to be a good provider as a man. But with the sagging job market and career choices of women blossoming so much more than it was decades ago, many men find that the woman that they are seriously involved with may earned far more than them!

Depending on the parties involved, this non traditional monetary pairing just might put a tremendous amount of stress on the relationship and even kill its chances of survival.

You might have an insecure man who feels emasculated when he cannot provide the lifestyle that his mate has a chance of enjoying if she had someone that could match her earnings just as well as well as having the frustration of having a man with good intentions who loves her but cannot pull his weight in the manner of the people who match or surpass her earning who she must constantly deal with in her professional career inner circle.

Ladies, does love hinge on how much money your man makes or do you refuse to allow materialism to enter into your emotional realm and view the collective earnings of both parties as one big pot to draw your financial sustenance from regardless as to who makes more?
