How much should your future husband/spouse earn in your opinion?
Very good advice. How much should a man be making in your opinion salary wise? By the time he's 27-30Its important to most women. A man who doesn't have his financials in order is on shaky ground. And its hard to maintain love when you're 'struggling'. Its one thing to scale back or downsize if life happens in a marriage but you'd rather he start off in a good place.
It depends on who the guy is and what he does for a living. Assuming that around that age everything goes according to plan life wise and there are no deviations in life trajectory (from illness, familial troubles or other life events). I would say by that time someone would have between 5-8 years of work experience. If they are in a more technical vocation that's high 5 figures or 6 figures. If they are in more of the caring professions (i.e. social service sector) it would be around average. Higher if they have a graduate degree in that field. If they are pursuing graduate school (sacrificing time in paid employment) then it would be much lower, if they are doing a post-doc or a medical resident not as high for a while. If they were in the trades 6 figures would be expected but the job presents its share of health risks. It comes down to the individual. I tend to prize intellect/a desire to learn very highly so despite the academic or career successes of the individual if they sparingly pick up a book or have a limited conversational repertoire that wouldn't sustain my romantic interest.Very good advice.
