Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta t August phenomena found in family life Wife as main money earner often leads to marital discord By JL'DV KLEMESRUD New York Times Service NEW YORK As more and more women move into the well paying jobs that were once denied them, a new and sometimes sticky phenomenon is emerging in the family: the wife who earns more money than her husband. Some couples accept the situation calmly, as though it were as natural as dollars and cents. Other couples, however, apparently have not been able to come to terms with the fact that the woman, traditionally the nurturer of the family, is also its No. 1 breadwinner. This became apparent in conversations with more than a score of women who are the major money earners in their families. Although many of them seemed proud of their jobs, their status and their high salaries, more than half of them declined to allow their names to be used or their husbands to be interviewed on the grounds that the men's feelings might be hurt. One couple who have calmly accepted the wife's higher income are Lloyd and Carolyn Bishop, who live in a converted loft they own in the SoHo area of Manhattan with their Saint Ber- nard. Boozer. Ther have no plans for children. Bishop. 34 years old. left a high paying job in the advertising business in 1969 to become a free lance photographer. During the first few years of his now career, he was almost totally sup- ported by his wife, who is the home furnishing editor of Family Circle magazine. "We're both from a conservative background in Wisconsin, where the men earn the living and the women stay at the blonde Mrs. Bishop recently. "But I felt he should enjoy his work us much as I was enjoying and he wasn't. 1 was the one who encouraged him to leave the ad business and strike out on his own." Today. Mrs. Bishop, also 34, earns "from two to three times" as much as her husband. On payday, she comes home and hands over her check to Bishop, who does all of the couple's bookkeeping. They keep their money in a joint checking account, she said. "1 don't care how much more money she makes than I said Bishop, a husky, former college football player with a sense of humor. as long as she doesn't spend it at the track. on booze, or on beach boys." Me added, however, that he was considering oilers to return to the advertising business, hopefully in a job where he could use his photographic skills. He said that even it he did accept such a job, his wife would still earn more money than he did, "and it doesn't bother me a bit." The Bishops declined to discuss their pre- sent earnings. One such woman who didn't want her name used was a 33 year old internist on the staff of a large Manhattan hospital. She said she earned twice as much as her husband, who teaches mathematics at a Manhattan college. "Money has never been a problem to she said. "I guess it's because it's just something that neither of us cares about." She added that once in awhile she and her hus- band joke about the fact that she earns more money than he does. "When I go buy a dress, we'll laugh about she said. "I'll say. 'I can do what I want with my money.' But it's never been a point of friction with us." Last year. Mary Travers, the singer, earned Her husband, Gerald Taylor, publisher of the National Lampoon, earned And although they both agree that "the money thing" was initially a problem in their marriage, they seem to have worked it out. "You can't compare apples and oranges. Miss Travers, formerly a member of the Peter, Paul and Mary singing group, said in an inter- view in her husband's office the other day. "We are in totally different fields. In the performing field, it's so irrational what you get paid, anyway. You just can't equate the two." Her curly haired husband smiled and nodded in agreement. "We did have a problem at first, though." he admitted. "I was born and raised in a male chauvinist society, where the father was the breadwinner and doled out a certain amount of money every week. So it took some getting used to living in a house I couldn't individually afford. Yeah, it's a little heavy. But am I going to let this get in the way of my relationship with a marvelous human "The crux of the whole thing, really." Miss Travers said, "is if you can't make it our money, then you shouldn't try to make it our life." The couple has a joint account, and Miss Travers also has a separate account for her business dealings. The couple's bills are paid by an accountant who sits down with them once a month "and yells at us a lot." Taylor said.

But if this army sergeant lived anywhere else but in Eastern Europe, this routine would most likely have under- gone a profound change five years ago. For one fact distinguishes Bronislaw from any other man in is the fa- ther of quintuplets. In the West, he might have been bombarded with offers of small fortunes for signing away exclusive publicity rights on his children. In Poland, however, where such commercialism is un- known. Bronislaw and his wife Leokadia continue to live simply in a second-floor flat in a tree-shaded street. "Of course, the birth of the quintuplets had a great in- fluence on our style of life but not to that said Mrs. Rychert. who also has two sons aged 10 and nine. "I do the cooking for the children." she said. "I also have to search round the shops and line up like everybody else." As she spoke, her husband, a stocky, bright-eyed tele- communications expert, en- tered the flower-filled room which, like others in the flat, is sparsely furnished. Next door, in a room lined down two walls with cots, the five boys and two having a monthly medical ex- amination. Rychert sat silent as his wife went on to explain the main changes in their life. While no fortune has come their way, the of intense interest in Poland- has not been allowed to suffer money problems. They moved from their two- roomed flat in this Baltic sea- port to their present six rooms in a rambling old house, for which they pay only nominal rent. Although it is three years since the quintuplets were born, Mrs. Rychert, a small woman dressed simply in skirt and blouse, is still on paid holiday from her job of restaurant cook. For this she receives about 3.000 zlotys a month. In addition, her husband brings home zlotys in pay and children's allowances and a special government pay- ment of 1.000 zlotys a month for each of the quintuplets brings the monthly family in- come to around zlotys. The only payment ap- proaching the idea of com- mercialism is one of 800 zlo- tys a month from a state-con- trolled photographic agency. Such an income is not overly high for a family of nine. The Rycherts see no need for a car but Mrs. Rychert said they were having a new house built and paying for it out of their savings. Herald Family Unified family court pilot project in B.C.

The B.C. government ap- proved the pilot project in February, acting on recommednations of a royal commission on family and children's law. The test area picked for the project includes a population of 280.000 living in the Surrey- Richmond-Delta federal riding, in the South Fraser River valley near Vancouver.

Without a unified system, families with marital or delin- quency problems have to de- pend on fragmented sources of relief on their own psychiatrist, welfare worker, probation of- ficer or said. The unified system also pre- vents cases involving more serious crimes from spilling over into the family court sys- tem, he added. The B.C. government is fi- nancing the project, which consists of three separate court buildings, three full- time provincial court judges, three rotating Supreme Court judges, a family consultation staff of 25 and a support staff. THE BETTER HALF The court also maintains the services of two family advo- cates provincially-paid lawyers who act on behalf of children in marital dis- protect children's rights. Part of the cost of evaluating the project's results will be borne by the Law Reform Commission of Canada, which earlier this year released a study paper recommending a system of unified family courts in each province. While the administration of justice is constitutionally a provincial responsibility, the commission's report favored a single system rather than a two-tiered one which would in- volve both federally-and provincially-appointed judges.
