An influencer has divided opinion after revealing she wants her husband to earn ‘a substantial amount’ more than she does – and claimed that a monthly wage of £4,000 is ‘not enough’ to live on.
Michelle Bingley, from Leicester – who hosts Standout.TV’s show Grilling – shared her views with influencer Margs, who came on her show as a guest.
When he asked if it would be okay to earn ‘£50,000 – £60,000’ a year, she retorted: ‘That’s not a lot’.
A baffled Margs exclaimed: ‘That’s not enough for you?’ before she said it was only ‘£4,000 – £5,000’ a month.

‘If I’m going to settle with a man he needs to have a decently great wage,’ she later explained.
‘I want to be provided for if I needed it.’
As her guest insisted that living on four grand a month is very doable, the host said that it may be enough for solely her means but ‘it’s not just her alone’.
‘Imagine if I have a child and I can’t work,’ she added. ‘Can you now upkeep the life I would have had without my wage?’
Michelle also said it’s ‘impossible’ for a man to provide the lifestyle she wants – even if she was unable to work – if he earned less than her.
‘He wouldn’t be able to,’ she added. ”Cause I wouldn’t be able to maintain me on anything less, so how’s he going to maintain me, him and potential children?
‘He just needs to have big, big money.’

Many were in agreement with Michelle, who also shares snaps of her very glamorous lifestyle – including bougie holidays and glitzy events – on Instagram with 12,800 followers
Later, as Margs said he wouldn’t mind if his partner made more than him, a clip – seemingly showing her reaction – showed Michelle saying that’s an ‘ick’.

‘I shouldn’t and won’t date below what I provide and offer,’ Michelle said in a comment under the video. ‘If you can’t match that then don’t be pressed at me.’
‘I agree with her 4k a month is not enough for a couple and definitely not enough if you want to build a family,’ a second added.

Margs (pictured) was on the show and questioned Michelle on her expectations about a man’s salary
Others hit out that not only are her expectations ‘wild’, but that take-home income won’t be as much as they expect
Elsewhere a third penned: ‘They just aren’t compatible. 4-5k in this economy for 2 isn’t that much, when you add kids it becomes quite right. Especially in big cities.’
However, others hit out that not only are her expectations ‘wild’, but that take-home income won’t be as much as they expect.
‘Even earning a salary of £100k a year, you only take home £5k a month after tax,’ one claimed. ‘Financial expectation level these days are wild, lifestyle expectations are wild, social media has really ruined reality for people.’
‘”I want to have a nice life” and I want someone else to work to pay that for me,’ another quipped.
One comment asked if Michelle was ‘trolling’.
