Question: How do you and your partner discuss money?

The new mister just got a promotion and raise, woohoo! Prior to that, I was making just a hair above his full time job, and we’ve been in this dance of who makes more. His new position bumps him up about $10 more an hour, which I don’t think I’ll catch up with any time soon. But we are a little competitive about who comes out on top (and who is buying dinner). We work in totally different industries, but it’s still interesting to consider.

We’re both self pretty sufficient, so it’s more just an amusing pastime to compare paychecks. So I’m just curious, do you compare wages? Do you talk about it at all?
