      My FI is in sales for a global sports company. I make quite a bit more than he does, but he loves his job which is worth everything! Plus he gets amazing perks and a great bonus which probably equates to about the same amount that I make. So we're pretty even for now.

        My FI makes more than I do. He works for Au Bon Pain in the corporate office as an executive. He gets profit sharing and GREAT bonuses every quarter. He has an MBA.

        I am a behavioral analyst working for a large hospital. I have a master's in clinical psychology.

          Are you a BCBA? I see that you live in MA, so do I! I work for the New England Center for Children, have you heard of it?

          Right...this is supposed to be about my FI. He is a software engineer and makes almost 3x what I make. However, I was in graduate school which was paid for by my employer. But...I'm a teacher and he will always make more...I've gotten used to the fact that I will never make lots of $$$. I'm happy with my choices though because I work with children with autism and feel like I'm changing the world...one child at a time!

            My FI is an electrician by trade but now works in the office designing overhead and underground powerlines. He earns just over 100k a year, he has no degree just learnt on the job. The company we both work for pay very well. I am a business analyst there and earn just under what he does and I don't do any overtime. we are making the most of it until I give up work to become a mum hopefully

              I'm also in the minority. I make 3 times what my hubby does... but, I also have an insane amount of student loans. I'm an ER doctor and my DH does IT and office management for his family's condo development/construction company.

                I'm a BCBA, LICSW. I have heard of NECC. Your job must be very rewarding. What age group do you teach?

                  i make a little over double what my FI does. He is OK with it....and actually sort of enjoys it (he always makes jokes that when we have a baby - financially it makes more sense for him to be the stay at home dad).

                    My FI is a high school science teacher...and I work in the nonprofit sector. Not looking too good for the "when I grow up I want to be rich" idea. :)

                      We're the same way... in all likelihood, my DH is going to start working from home or just stop working when we have kids.
