  1. If there are ego hassles then they will find a way, whether both are earning or not. What is important is that the couple consider their money and assets as a collective. Obviously both earning means more money but that may not always be the case. Nonetheless what they have belongs to both.

  2. Financial independence should not matter in a happy relationship but I think it’s best if both sides are independent. Then there’s no obligation or no one feels dependent on their other
