Married Women Outearning Men

by frugalista on January 20, 2010

An increasing number of married women are out-earning their men, according to a Pew Research Center study. About 22 percent of women earned more than their spouse in 2007. Only four percent of women earned more than their husband in 1970.

I am not shocked by these statistics. My college had way more women than men in classes. Also, I have a friend who says he only dates “60 plus” ladies, women who earn more than $60,000 a year. Yes, men can be gold (silver?) diggers, too. LOL

Nowadays, it seems like women and men are looking for the same thing – stability. I don’t only look at salary when thinking about a mate. I’m thinking benefits package (yay healthcare) as well as career longevity. Pro athletes make millions pretty young, but do they also hold on to the cash? Um, no.

What do you think?
