Can Women Allow Their Salaries Be Paid Into Their Husband’s Account?
Recently, one of the jokes that circulated on social media appeared to be comedy at the expense of ladies. “Gentlemen, if you have N5,000 and your wife has N55,000, the total amount of money in the house is N5,000,” it states. “Are we on the same page?” Naturally, the males are working together on this.
They assume that the wives will never tell their husbands how much money they have. Can we argue, however, that women are united on this issue? Surprisingly, a large number of women agree with the men. The wife believes that her husband is the family’s leader and that it is his obligation to supply everything the family requires.
After all, when she married him, she gave up her maiden name and accepted his, and all of their children are named after him, so he should be prepared to face the entire responsibility. Although there are a few exceptions, the majority of housewives do not want their husbands to know how much money they have.
Women are accused of being the worst offenders in this area, despite the fact that it is estimated that roughly half of all spouses hide money from each other. In fact, one out of every five Nigerian women is considered to be guilty of concealing numerous financial secrets.
While this has become a major problem impeding domestic growth, many contend that some women now have legitimate grounds for resenting wholesome financial contributions to the family.
So, can women allow their salaries be paid into their husband’s bank accounts as financial contributions to the family’s upkeep?
Let’s hear your opinion on this…
