  • Every couple has to figure out what each others' role is. For us, we're pretty equal in every way. We were both well into successful careers when we met and for a brief time, Ia did make more than my husband. We're now pretty much neck & neck. Of course, we've also each had turns at being the only bread-winner thanks to the ups and downs of the advertising industry as well as the complexity of relocating two careers simultaneously.

    I'll add that we try not to "keep score" on other areas too, like housework, child "duty." We know too many people who do keep score and they spend a lot of energy tallying up who owes whom.
