How much $$$ does your FI / DH make?

Recommended Posts

DH is in IT and makes more than me, but only because he is still working in Toronto and I work in Barrie. When we were both working in Toronto he didn't make much more than me at all.

FI is also a student - whose in even greater than I am since he pays out of state tuition. When we graduate I will probably make more because he is looking into doing a residency - so his stipend will be substantially less. But once he's done... he will have more opportunities and will probably make more.

FI makes nearly 2x what I make. With his bonus and extra cash for working the support phone (IT) he'll definitely make more, but that's not regular.

 

He works for a software company as a project manager and has been at the same firm for 9 years. He's not super happy with the job.

 

I think both of us wish we could just start over doing something completely different. We may do that eventually, but now's not a good time!

My FI paints cars and I was so surprised to find out what those guys make. He takes home 6 figures and during the summer he usually only has to work 4 days a week. Must be nice. He is very detailed and good at what he does though and he loves doing it.

 

He is extremely smart and it's funny because I'm the one with the finance degree but he handles all my retirement funds because he keeps better track of the market than I do and I will say my funds have more than tripled since he started doing so..ha

Mike is the Director of Compensation & Benefits at a large company in Philly. He used to work for PWC as a consultant for 7 years, but changed jobs b/c he traveled constantly and it was really hard on both of us. Let's just say that he makes a hell of a lot more than I do!!!

Colin and I make about the same, but I work on call so my paycheques are never the same. Some months I make a bit more than him, and some months he makes more than me. It's never more than a few hundred dollars either way though.

FI is an avaition consultant and makes almost double what I do. ButI'm a hairstylist and we just moved to the area a year ago so my paycheck varies and I also make tips. He also started with 3 weeks paid vacation and benefits. I get one week, and thats only after you've been there a year, and no benefits. Luckily I am able to be covered under his insurance because I'm his "domestic partner". smile159.gif

You'll see the trucks everywhere once you know what they are, especially if you live somewhere where there is a lot of building going on.
