A Wife’s Views on Social Security

BY CHERYL WARD

I found the article “ Social Security: What’s the Magic Age? ” ( JofA , Jul.06, page 28) informative, but I was a little offended. It assumed that a wife could have earnings only up to 100% of her husband’s earnings (see the chart on page 31). In the next year I will be earning more than my husband and will continue to earn more. I would hope in the 21st century we will see wives earning more than their husbands and that we no longer take for granted that the wife is the secondary breadwinner in the family.
