Considering that we're still both in school, no.

But if we end up living together, I don't care if she's making more or making less. We help each other and provide money to one another if needed. As long as it doesn't end up where one person is completely leeching off another person, that's a no no.

It may sound romanticized but I believe the saying "love conquers all" to be true. Money is really an insignificant factor in relationships; all that matters is that the two people care about each other enough to weather any storms that come along (financially, medically, emotionally or otherwise) and make life work.

As long as she can afford to buy me anime or anime products, nope. Now i just need to find her.

what he said. crap happens, so if your the kind of person to leave some one becuase they are down and broke...
in the end, money is just a thing. a very important thing, but a thing none the less.

I currently make more than my husband and I could not care less how much he makes. I have my own goals, ideally I want to make enough to be able to afford to take care of both of us in case he ever doesn't have a job or if I decide to have children and he becomes a stay at home dad.

A relationship really should never be about money. We actually keep our money separate but also share, if that makes sense? My money is my money and his money is his money, we never argue over finances or what the other person splurges on, and if one needs cash the other one forks it over. We have a joint account for bills. We know that our money is combined because we are married, but we also don't want to put limitations on who has and spends money on what.

I think an ideal relationship, financially speaking, is one where both individuals support each other but don't control how much the other makes or spends.

I've never been in a relationship long enough for that to actually matter.... Although I usually get asked to rescue someone from their debt and I say, "I'll help you if you help me," then they can't run fast enough....

I think it's important for each party to know what it's like to work a full time job.
and even more important to consider how much each party needs to spend and if they are in a stable situation.
If I'm with some one that needs a hand, I'm going to try to help them.

But the income is not such a big thing, think about how much a retired couple bring home. Nothing.

Depends on how much money I make.

I don't care about how much they make but more of their spending habits. not to sound bad or anything but I would be rather unhappy if she buys stuff we don't need or goes to a casino.....

I have no interest in a partner but if I did, it does not matter how much they make considering we'd have two separate bank accounts.

i don't really care how much he earns... i'd be even willing to support someone...

could live in a hut and still be happy... (as long as he cleans the toilet once a week) some guys are so disgusting... you can judge a man by his toilet, imo. if a lazy person like me can manage to clean the toilet once a week, no man should have a reason to not clean their toilet and leave it all black.... disgusting.

No, as long as she works, or keeps herself busy and isn't lazy then i dont mind~ money doesn't define love, however i dont tolerate people being blatantly lazy and sitting around all day, unless we're doing it together and everything that needs to be done is done~ i'd hope that my income doesn't affect my dateable-ness either haha~ in my eyes, it would be using someone if you only liked them for their money.
