She is younger than me and her career is booming, while mine has stagnated. I am thinking about retiring in the next 10 or 15 years and worry she will end up with most of the bills
I married quite late in life, to a woman 10 years younger than me. She earns a lot more than I do, and her career is booming, unlike mine, which has pretty much stagnated. We are both very relaxed about this. I don’t feel that my masculinity is threatened; it’s nice that, between us, we’re doing OK. I hope to retire in another 10 or 15 years, and I can’t wait! But would it be wrong to do that if she is still working? She would end up paying even more of the bills.
Would it be fair to retire and let my wife carry on working?
