    Papap jobs at schools is very difficult and not paid well. Not sure if that's what you mentioned.
    How about reading specialist school? Or go back to school. Ask husband to pay for your degree. It will take you few years to finish.

    Good earners, especially young and fit specimens, are often poached. I am not talking eggs :tongueclosed: here. Girls with high earners should engage in dual strategies, call it purpose-in-life if you must, to safeguard their ATMs.
    1. Shut up about it in parties; brag at your own peril.
    2. Feed him lots of fattening and unhealthy food, and keep him unattractive to all.

    Depends on area. Bay Area and North East are known for higher percentile to offset the COL. And to retain talent, the company pays competitive base + tons of worth of variable components which makes the total pay package very attractive.

    I am very amused to hear about a wife to reveal her husband's salary, especially an above-average earner's income.
    In my circle, my husband and his close friends consult with each other on potential offers and negotiation tactics based on the market they are targeting. They are neither with the same employer nor in IT.
    DH doesn't reveal what his other friends are making, if maybe pushed hard he eludes a range and leaves at it. But we wives don't engage ourselves in those topics.

    If they were with the same employer- discussion on salary would be grounds for termination. It is a breach of NDA.

    OP, By now all responses have mentioned that yes there are high paying jobs ! only the end result is seen right? Not the immense hard work behind it or the passion that took someone to acheive the success or the sacrifice that was made on the way is visible. I recently heard about a teenage person making good money (more than avg american annual salary) by being an entrepreneur, creating and selling something the person is passionate about. It took many many years of hard passionate work from childhood for the person to be here now and in a decade they could go places. Just thought of sharing!

    Although we might feel a bit 'down' that we arnt in the same space with the monies.... I remember all those content faces ( than me) back home and they seem to have much less than me!.. I mean how do they do it!?

    I have 2 home maker friends in India who just radiate happiness, one talks a lot one just smiles... I cannot lose them because what I feel when I spend time/ chat on phone with them... I have few friends yes, but these two are keepers forever!... so present, so content and that too naturally.

    Thus, my jealousy diverts...

    @KavithaUS ... its a contract breach alright... but we are used to it... I was amazed how they casually share their wages ... sometimes its been a first question to me after I introduce myself...

    What/How I answer is not in their hands thankfully

    Well, I am saying if the person is like me or my friends, run like crazy... when you see a guy like that, never marry a richie rich guy or one who looks like he might become rich in 10 years. Don’t marry A type, if one has disposition like my group.
    Having a sense of purpose won’t suffice for wife of a richie rich guy. I have very negative view of such marriages, again it is my opinion for what works for, standing in my shoes.
    Being wife of such influential person, one cannot find true friends, no work- because you don’t need money, no lovers/ affairs even because people are scared of the guy. Look at tragic life story of Princess Diana.
    I call it a Big tree syndrome, it is so big, that it won’t even let grass grow in it shade.
    Any women with any amount of individualistic ideas or not, will find such marriage difficult. So I called a curse.
    Warren Buffet is another example, he hangs out with his wife’s best friend from, his wife won’t give him divorce, a small thing to get back at him.

    I don't think it's right to assume everyone married to rich, successful men are unhappy or don't get to make friends. There are many who make most of their life. One example I can think of is Sakshi dhoni , if you see her Instagram feed you will see she has more friends than Dhoni himself. She travels many times without him for vacation and most of her friends are courtesy dhoni's social circle. So if a woman wants , she can make a good life using her husband's money and social circle.
