While this study is interesting, what I am noticing is that it seems to have a life of its own as it gets picked up by news outlets. For many, it may be misread as “women are now out-earning men,” and the media will go through another period of collectively wondering if we need feminism. Then, the media wants to focus on what they perceive to be the personal dynamics of the story. You can hear the commentators–men and women alike–dying to ask the question, and they usually do: how will it affect men if they are out-earned by their wives? What will it do to the marriage? Can men handle it? Will their feelings be hurt, their egos bruised? What should women do?
