Gone are the days when women used to stay at home and wait for their husbands to cater for the needs of their family. Women nowadays are taking up the role of the head of the family. They hustle hard for their children and even for their husbands.
Well, a city husband has taken many by surprise after he revealed that his wife is the one who foots the bills. This is so unlike many women who always confess that they cannot share a dime with their husbands, insisting men are the head of the family and should take care of all the bills.
According to this husband, his wife is from a wealthy family and she never allows him to use his salary. She foots all the bills. So she has requested him to quit his job and stay at home to take care of their children. But he is confused on whether to follow his wife’s advice or not.
“My wife is from a very rich family. I knew what I went through before I could marry her, because they felt I was a gold digger. I just earn 150k and I have been managing it with my family.
My father-in-law just gave my wife a good paying job with 820k every month, that is her monthly income apart from allowances. He said he is more comfortable with his daughter’s financial security in case anything happens to him tomorrow.
Life has been good to us, my wife does not even allow me to touch my salary, she even adds to it. Now we have been changing baby sitters because of one funny behaviour or the other. My love for kids is out of this world. So my wife suggested I quit my job and stay home with our kids since my salary is practically doing nothing.
She also said she will be dividing her salary into 2, every month she gives me 400k to do my manly things, or if I am not comfortable we run a joint account. It sounds nice but I need to be sure I am not making a terrible mistake I will regret in the long run. I need your opinion. What do you all think about this idea.”
