Earnings of Husbands and Wives in Dual-Earner Families.
Winkler, Anne E.
Monthly Labor Review, v121 n4 p42-48 Apr 1998
As married women have become increasingly likely to work in recent decades, their contributions to family earnings have grown as well. In 20% to 25% of dual-earner couples, wives earn more than their husbands. These trends may have affected family decision making, giving some women more input into family financial and career decisions. (Author)
