    Who is the primary wage earner? You or your partner? What are your genders?

    My gf comes from a really wealthy background, so although I work and go to college, she has much more than I do, and would be considered the biggest earner or most wealthy in our relationship, and will always be so.

    right now, it would be neither. My hubby is a full time MBA student and I'm a stay-at-home mom. But when he graduates next summer, he'll be it as I'll continue staying home with the kids.

    GirthGuy: I'm the primary wage earner now, but my wife was while I was in law school. It was pretty nice to mooch off her for a while, she sacrificed a lot to put me through school, and I'm one lucky guy.

    I am the boy bring home the bucks in this relationship. We are both male professionals, but his profession only pays half as well. This can lead to some upset in the relationship sometimes. Equal dedication to each career doesn't always reflect in equal pay.
