Editorial Reviews

Review

“In When She Makes More, Farnoosh Torabi unmasks the challenges female breadwinners face and provides solid solutions for protecting your finances and your relationship.”
—Tory Johnson, Good Morning America contributor and New York Times #1 bestselling author of The Shift
 
“When She Makes More is an inspiring, optimistic book that equips today's female breadwinners with smart solutions for overcoming the personal and professional trip wires of our new economic reality.”
—Barbara Corcoran, author of Shark Tales and host of The Millionaire Broker with Barbara Corcoran on CNBC
                     
“I predict Farnoosh’s ground breaking book will save more relationships than couples counseling ever could.  Superbly researched, well-written, engagingly fun, I couldn’t put it down.  Every working woman, married or single, needs to read this empowering guide! I’m so grateful I did.”
—Barbara Stanny, author of Secrets of Six-Figure Women
 
When She Makes More is a book of liberation from old ideas about women in the workforce who want to have it all. Torabi’s intelligence, respect for research, and vibrant prose put the book in an elite class with the best self-help books from financial gurus and masters of psychological nonfiction.”
—Amanda Steinberg, founder of DailyWorth.com

No longer taboo to discuss the struggles of the female breadwinner, or the issues that can arise in the marriage as a result, this read comes from a good place.

It helps us balance a professional life and a relationship.

Format: Hardcover
This book is full of dated stereotypes about men and women and obnoxious statements about the gender roles "in our DNA" that I'm not even going to refute because I assume you're smart enough to read a biology text. It also contradicts itself, saying in one place that couples should think of all money coming in as "our money," and in another place that the wife should pay the mortgage and the husband should pay the cable. Also, obvious things like you shouldn't require your husband to ask your permission to buy a Coke and a candy bar, because that's humiliating. NO ONE likes to have to ask permission from a spouse to buy little things. That's not a masculine or feminine thing, just part of being an adult human!

It also says to leave your baby in daycare for long hours so you can build up seniority to spend more time with him when he's older, since babies don't know the difference between you and the baby-sitter anyway. Dumb. Insulting.

Two stars instead of one because I do agree that it is important to iron out the money issues in any marriage--money can be a sticking point for anyone--and because it reminded me to be grateful that my husband and father are both grown-ups perfectly content to hang out the laundry and wash the dishes while their wives work, not toddlers who expect their needs to be catered to all day long.

Farnoosh's advice immediately struck a chord with me because I'm one of those men who earned less. My spouse and I have enjoyed nearly 28 years of marriage while figuring out our own roles-- and dealing with the scrutiny of family & friends. My spouse and I kept ourselves focused on the real goal of financial independence, and the book's practical money-management techniques really work.

Guys, don't worry: this is not a male-bashing polemic. There's no psychobabble. You'll learn how two genders will see the same situations in very different ways, and you'll know how to respond to those differences. The book is based on hundreds of interviews with couples and counselors, and they've figured out how to deal with the inevitable debates to keep it all together. Our emotions and reflex responses may try to hijack our brains, but you'll learn how to get back on track instead of reacting.

10 easy (and very entertaining) chapters will show you how to level up your communications skills and share your couple's responsibilities. It's not about who earns more, but rather how each of you contribute to the relationship. You'll also learn how to handle the critical commentary of your family (particularly mothers-in-law) and the rest of society.

It's a great read, and my spouse and I kept nodding our heads in recognition. Our daughter is getting her copy as a bonus college graduation gift.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was written to help younger women who are primary breadwinners to navigate sensitive financial issues within their relationships. Many people may not think that the issue is a concern (depending on their background, age, position, and relationships) but I have seen others struggle with issues that Farnoosh explores. For example, I have seen a husband become jealous of his wife when she snagged a high-paying job; or feel lesser than because he's not the main provider in the family.

Drawing on research, real-life examples, and advice from psychiatrists, financial planners, and even a divorce lawyer, Farnoosh discusses rules for happiness in marriage and relationships relating to money. She does a great job of identifying key issues that should be discussed and decided upon throughout various life stages. She adds her own personality to the discussions but doesn't offer one-size-fits-all solutions.

You don't have to agree with every stance or perspective to get value from the book. If money affects your relationships (and it generally does in both obvious and not-so-obvious ways), then you should consider reading When She Makes More.

I bought the hard copy for my daughter and downloaded the book to my Kindle. The author has great advice for anyone in a relationship. Money can be a source of dissent for many couples and I strongly advise all women to read this book. She has great resources for managing money issues. It's best to have a discussion about finances before you get married and this book serves as a great guide for doing so. Well written.

I really like the part about how to: Cope with judgmental friends and family. You know who they are. Also each one of us female breadwinners has to rewrite our fairy tale- the story of our live and how we choose to live it in terms of expectations, goals, and the things that make us happy and fulfilled in our relationships.

My husband and I share our amazon account - so this is really being posted by Leisa Peterson - I received the book as part of attending FinCon 2014 and read it on my trip home from New Orleans. Overall as a woman who has often earned more than my husband, I enjoyed the book. I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER(tm) and teach people ways to improve their relationship with money so this topic is near and dear to my heart. My favorite aspects were the statistics about where we are and where we have come from in the past with money and the challenges facing women in general. There is no question in my mind that we have some serious challenges around gender roles and money throughout the world and this book did a good job of summarizing many of the important issues. Some of things that weren't so helpful for me in this book is that it is mostly written for people who are just starting out in their relationships - evidenced by the idea of keeping money separate which after 22 years of marriage and two children, the idea of keeping money separate is no longer considered helpful advice. However, I do understand the desire and need to keep money separate in the early stages of a relationship while trust is being established - eventually I would hope that money is seen as part of the relationship and is not needing to be separated. While I mostly manage our day-to-day finances, my husband and I work together so we both know what is happening with our money and what our plans are going forward. We both know neither party should ignore or grow complacent about money as it is a critical part of life and sooner or later, we will most likely need to be able to take care of it on our own.Read more ›
