Dealing with income inequality in your relationship
Income inequality in a relationship (if you make more than your partner or vice versa) can be a tough issue to tackle.

When one partner makes more than the other, it can put a strain on your relationship. But it doesn't have to be that way. With open, honest discussion and careful planning, you can avoid the pitfalls that a wage gap can cause. Here are a few common problems you may encounter along the way and some ideas on how to tackle them.
