As I haven’t married again since the last time I answered this same question, I’ll keep being the main and only breadwinner…

My two cats don't contribute much apart from nabbing the odd cockroach (and providing moral support)!

...in a household of three other adults, two of whom are starting university-level studies this year.

Free time? Leisure? Vacaaaaation?

Huh? What's that...yeah, I vaguely recall that kind of thing, a long time ago.

Breadwinning Aug 28, 2014

I'm the main breadwinner, but my cat Garabato never touches bread and I seldom eat bread.

Why don't we have better English words instead of breadwinner? It's so archaic, demodé, passé, a word so stale and crusty and rancid as last night's toast.

As it just so happens, we have that same idiom in Portuguese (Brazilian), too. I kind of like it (if you take the bread-for-the-soul approach, that is).

Synonym Aug 28, 2014

"Bacon bringer-homer" is a synonym for "breadwinner". Does the first sound better than the latter?

Yes. Aug 28, 2014

Both, my husband and I work full time, my husband is employed at another company. I am the one with the higher income.

The burden is insane (no paid sick days, no paid vacation days...).

Since we both work together on this madness, we both bring home the bacon. I translate a lot more than Gaby, but when she isn't working on her own projects, she's helping me with mine.

No cats here... just the stupid dog. His birthday was yesterday.

I am not the main breadwinner. In fact, there would be no bread if it depended on my income.
