It’s too bad that some spouses get mad because the other makes more money, and this is especially true when it concerns some men. There have been wives complaining about husbands who detest their ability to earn more. But as long as the wife is doing her duty as a wife and not neglecting the husband or the home, and the money goes to help everyone, what is the big deal? (Proverbs 31:10-31).
I’ll tell you what the big deal is! Some people just have to be the main event. Some people are jealous of anyone who is more successful and that is just plain wrong (Genesis 4:3-7, 37:1-11; 1 Samuel 18:5-15; Matthew 2:1-18, 27:18. Mark 15:10; Romans 13:13, 1:29; 1 Corinthians 13:4; Galatians 5:26; 1 Peter 2:1; Titus 3:3; James 3:16; Philippians 1:15; 1 Timothy 6:4).
Two working people in a marriage will not make the same wage. Someone will earn more and the other less. Everyone should accept that, and be thankful at the success of the combined incomes which help both live a more comfortable life. Stop being jealous, it’s wrong!
