When wives earn more than their husbands, they both do something pretty bad

In her most recent stand-up special, Hard Knock Wife, comedian Ali Wong describes one of the most tangible ways her life has changed since rising to prominence last year.

“Now I make a lot more money than my husband,” she tells the crowd. “My mom is very concerned that he is going to leave me out of intimidation. I had to explain to her that the only kind of man that would leave a woman who makes more money is the kind of man that doesn’t like free money.”

The joke’s warm reception highlights an awkward reality: It’s increasingly common for wives to make more than their husbands — about 38% of wives earned more than their husbands in 2015, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics — and it’s also common for that to make people uncomfortable.
