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.

    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
    • So long story short I want to have my wedding in Jamaica in December. However, it's booked up. So next option is Cancun. I am going to be doing a Tamil Sri Lankan South Asian wedding. I want a 5 star hotel.  I was set on Royalton as that is where I always go and love it. However, it seems really pricy for the wedding. I am looking to have 30-40 people.  I want to spend the least amount of money ... Doesn't everyone!  I want to know what 5 star chain or resort provides the best deals for weddings? I would love to know about Moon Palace( I can't get a hold of anyone!)  If there are any other ones please let me know!
