Right. When I met my husband he was making right around 73k/year. A few years later he was found by a recruiter an offered another job for around 115k. He wanted to stay with his company but they were freaking out at the thought of him leaving so they negotiated and that's what they offered him to stay plus a few extras and a better bonus. I can say we didn't become significantly happier with the raise although it's nice and we can save/invest more than we did with his lower salary.
