The results so far are somewhat surprising.

Over 65% work or contribute in some way.

 

This is contrary to the belief of many (overseas friends) that pinays are all looking for a meal ticket.

 

I must confess here that next year my partner (Pinay) will earn more than me.

 

I'm amazed how much everyone's wives/GFs make when working.

 

I've always heard that the pay is low here but some of you say your wives makes more than you do.

 

One post stated his wife use to make over 2 million peso a year.

 

From what I'm reading, some of you have wives/GFs that are among the smartest, most educated and highest paid women in the country.

 

Congratulation for marrying the cream of the crop.

Are you confining this to those that live in The Philippines or including members wives that have moved to their husbands home country as well?

i clicked part time altho mine is supposed to be on call 24 hours like myself for our biz.

 

tonite is a typical example as it's almost 4 am and i just got back home from meeting her and the crew at IT park and the casino. seems she had a few too many cocktails so the crew called me out to finish the deals before she messed it up and got in trouble with her family.

 

maybe i should just adjust my sleeping hours and cover the nite shift myself and pretend to her family that she helps out during the day :)   

admit it you get a rush out of the sale... living on the edge ...

To be clear here when using the term better half. How many really have a wife/gf that makes up anywhere near half (physically speaking of course) of the two of you? 

 

In my case my wife would be about 1/4.  :biggrin_01:

Maybe 1/3 after we all ate out at Radisson Blu's "all you can eat" dinner buffet!

We really enjoyed that! They had some killer deserts!  

OPS! Going off topic now! My bad!

My wife has her on business and probably makes more money here in the Philippines than she would abroad.

"The cream of the crop" earn over 1.5 millions a year (in the Philippines).

Remember that some here just have a small pension + - 40k (-+ 480 a year)

And some of the wives / GF working abroad.

Teachers in public school earns 20-40k a month, depending on the position. (260-520k a year 13 months)

Some have business where the women do the majority of the job and therefore earns more than the man. Some of the women have their own business that they operates without her husband's help.

Mine works in a bank, and while her pay is little, she's a proud woman and want to contribute with our living expenses.
