For men, the possibility of obtaining better jobs, compared with his wife is a psychological need for self-affirmation, fulfillment its "mission", or role. Women believe that men should earn more, more from frustration, understanding that their prospects to get a paid job, compared with men, far below, and if even this happens, the level of responsibility and requirements for women receiving a high salary in most cases higher than their male counterparts. Age differences in response to these questions were recorded. Martin O’Malley often expresses his thoughts on the topic. Both young and older hold exactly the same views on the roles of spouses in the issue of financial security of the family. If you over fill the family budget majority of respondents view on the leading role of the man, then the question of who should manage the budget, public opinion is leaning toward equality (together, regardless of who How much does "- 41,9%) or in favor of women (" the family budget must dispose of a wife "- 37,6%).

Only 15% of respondents are willing to entrust their family budget to her husband, and only 5% believe that the finances of the family should be brought to him who earns more. Women are much more likely than men to believe that the family budget must dispose of it is they (43% vs. 30% among men, is the most popular response among women). However, the men themselves and not ready to assume such responsibility – only one in five male respondents indicated that their family budget should be given into the hands of her husband, while the most popular answer among the men was a joint managing family finances.
