By- Shreya Sharma

We are in the 21st century and we are no less than guys. Even now men are considered to be the head of a family and be the one who should earn for the survival of the family, but women are no less now. Now we have entered the traditionally male-dominated spaces and we are on roll. We are marking our presence everywhere. Finance has always been an issue that leads to arguments between the couple. There are women who earn more than their boyfriend or husband. Here are 10 things that happen when you earn more than your man.

  1. People are amazed

When you earn more than your man, people close to you are amazed that your family does not work on the stereotypical standards. You need not be embarrassed if you dominate financially. You are secure and you do not need your man’s money to lead your life.


  1. You are guilt free

When you know that you earn more than your man, you do not have to harbor any feeling of guilt while spending money. When you have your own wealth and resources, then it shows that you have an even partnership where you treat each other rather than waiting for the next gift.

  1. No gold digger label

Women are accused of being a gold digger when they get into a relationship with a rich man. When you are financially stable on your own, then people will not accuse your relationship to be based on money and other benefits. People will know that you do not live on your partner’s money.

  1. You can give good advice

Being in a financially strong position than your man, you can give him some advice about how to handle his own finances. You need not feel awkward about it. Instead, he should take inspiration and help from you in a caring manner.


  1. You do not have to worry about breakup

There are many women who stay in a bad relationship because they fear that their lifestyle will suffer if their partner leaves them as they will not have benefits of his money anymore. When you earn healthy, you do not have to make sacrifices for your happiness. You know you can leave him anytime without worrying about your lifestyle.

  1. You do not feel pressurize to move in

When you earn healthy, you do not feel pressurize to move in together to save money. You can take your time because you can afford it. You will move in with your partner only when you feel the time is right.

  1. You can treat your man

You can easily treat your man with dinner and movie dates every now and then. Your man will not feel offended by this if he really loves you. He will respect you for being a strong and independent woman.


  1. You are independent

When someone helps us financially, we feel like we cannot live our lives the way we want to. When we earn enough, we are independent to do what we want to do and when we want to do. We live more freely because it assures us that we will always be ok on our own.

  1. We feel power

Society teaches us that men should be the one earning more in a family and he should be the breadwinner which usually shifts the power in the hands of men. When you earn your own money and do not depend on your man, it gives you equal powers as your man.

  1. You can be stable

You know you will be able to help out regardless of what happens while being financially stable. You can deal with unaccounted bills, unforeseen circumstances or something big.
