Company no-couples policy: Who should quit?

A situation arose in a family, the man earns £30,000 a year and the wife earns £50,000 a year and they work in the same company. One of them has to leave the job because it's the company's new policy that couples will no more be tolerated. Who do you think should leave the job with effective reasons?

    Jul 16 2013: This should be decided by the couple between themselves, it is not fair that the man should leave just because he earns less, yet it is also not fair that the woman should leave because the man "should take care of the family". This should be an internal decisions, and furthermore, I find it strange that the company should interfere in the personal lives of others.
