Women who think like this should remain single...or look for one of the modern day wimps they (not me) call men

This is an exceptionally well-researched book by an expert who knows what she's talking about. Torabi tackles an important topic that doesn't get enough attention. I found the book both inspiring and empowering. I highly recommend it!

This book was written to help younger women who are primary breadwinners to navigate sensitive financial issues within their relationships. Many people may not think that the issue is a concern (depending on their background, age, position, and relationships) but I have seen others struggle with issues that Farnoosh explores.  Drawing on statistics, extensive research, real-life examples, and advice from psychiatrists, financial planners, and even a divorce lawyer, Farnoosh discusses rules for happiness in marriage and relationships relating to money. She does a great job of identifying key issues that should be discussed and decided upon throughout various life stages. She adds her own experiences to the discussions but doesn't offer one-size-fits-all solutions. She wisely advises readers to make decisions based on their unique circumstances.  You don't have to agree with every stance or perspective to get tremendous value from the book. If money affects your relationships (and it generally does in both obvious and not-so-obvious ways), then you should consider reading When She Makes More.

Guys, this is a terrific insight into the growing group of bread-winning women around the country. As a 30-something in NYC, I've dated many women who make more than me, and I wish I read this book beforehand. It's important to realize the realities of these relationships, and Farnoosh spells out her advice based on personal experience and other couples' stories. Great book! I'm recommending this to all of my buddies :)

Guys, read this book to figure it out now! Farnoosh's advice immediately struck a chord with me because I'm one of those men who earned less. My spouse and I have enjoyed nearly 28 years of marriage while figuring out our own roles-- and dealing with the scrutiny of family & friends. My spouse and I kept ourselves focused on the real goal of financial independence, and the book's practical money-management techniques really work. Guys, don't worry: this is not a male-bashing polemic. There's no psychobabble. You'll learn how two genders will see the same situations in very different ways, and you'll know how to respond to those differences. The book is based on hundreds of interviews with couples and counselors, and they've figured out how to deal with the inevitable debates to keep it all together. Our emotions and reflex responses may try to hijack our brains, but you'll learn how to get back on track instead of reacting. 10 easy (and very entertaining) chapters will show you how to level up your communications skills and share your couple's responsibilities. It's not about who earns more, but rather how each of you contribute to the relationship. You'll also learn how to handle the critical commentary of your family (particularly mothers-in-law) and the rest of society. It's a great read, and my spouse and I kept nodding our heads in recognition. Our daughter is got her copy as a bonus college graduation gift.

Interesting read from a very practical money expert. Farnoosh tackles a tricky subject, who makes more money in a couple and how that can impact your relationship. Lots of good takeaway information here, would highly recommend this book to any woman to read.

Book is very anedotal, based on opinons, it quickly lost my interest. Based on the title, I was expecting something more factual.
