My wife. Nailin’ it.
You heard me.
I just found out my wife might soon start making more money than me. As a white, straight, US male, I believe I am supposed to be upset or at least offended, but I have also been told it is ok to even feel threatened. This is all a bit confusing, so I could really use your help.
Are there any resources available for how I can handle this problem? I’m sure there are various ways I can still “keep her down”, as it were, and remind her that she isn’t “as good as I am” in the workforce. I know physical repression is kind of a faux pas these days, but what’s the word on emotional oppression?
Also, how should I approach her about this problem? Is this something I should bring up directly at the dinner table? I’ve heard there can be some success with subtlety and backhanded compliments. I’m not sure which is more my style yet, so any anecdotes you can share would help.
I hope you can understand this is new territory for me, so any advice you have on how I can remind my wife who is still the “breadwinner of this house” would really be appreciated. Thanks!
