What's you idea if your wife or dating partner earn more money than you?  Upset or upbeat? Probably most of the men especially those in China would feel a little bit shame facing the above situation. The point here is how would you deal with it? Dumping your current job or partner? What's your choice? it would be better if you have the real life experience.

No problem, money comes and goes - one time I can have more, other time my partner.
In the serious relationship it is still "our" money.

What is for me important in relationship about the money?
- have to cover basic expenses
- good if there can be some for a social life
- very good if there are some extra for savings
- perfect if there are spare money to spend on entertainment

Who earns the money (more of it?) are less important.
While I was always the person who had higher salary and other income, I would have no objection if my partner would have bigger income.

Dumping a partner because She have more income?! - who made that question?!

Dumping a job? - why? To take care about home - as a help to the Partner who in that time have opportunity to earn more?
In that case You don't have to dump a job, but to have one that can be shared with home duties.

For me -  Partner can not be judged by the money, job - is not only for gaining a money but also to help to develop oneself, learn, nad improve skills.
I can not imagine myself as a 100% "househusband" :) but I respect that there are the people who are into it.

I wish my girlfriend earned more money, it would take some of the pressure off me.

Though her opinion is that, as a man, I should pay for the majority of things, when it comes to those non essentials which she likes and enjoys, like expensive face cream, hair treatments, dozens of pairs of shoes, I wish she could use more of her money to pay for these things.

that's exactly my way :)

important expenses can (should) be shared, but every partner can (should) have spare money for own "small pleasures"

...that of course doesn't mean that I haven't bought Her some "small pleasures" out of "my" money :)

small gifts are important in a relationship, but I really do not understand why she needs so many pairs of shoes or such expensive face cream hehe.

my pleasures are simple, watching the football of a weekend with a cold beer is all I require.
