Why people who are committed to each other in a relationship, live together or married or what have you, own a house, raising children etc have ‘his money’ and ‘her money’?
I have specifically made this gender split, BTW, because I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a gay or lesbian couple operating this way. And I know a few.
But it seems perfectly acceptable for a man to have ‘his money’ and a woman to have ‘her money’ and if one is short? They have to borrow from their spouse/partner.
Surely, all money, as all everything else, is joint. Surely, even if one of you makes millions a day and one of you makes pennies it doesn’t matter because it all goes into one account and you both spend what you need/want?
Why on EARTH would anyone, man or woman, agree to anything else?!?!
It’s financial abuse, BTW, to keep your spouse short of money because you can. It’s a form of emotional abuse and control.
Of course, it’s usually the woman who is short and asking to ‘borrow’ money from their spouse. Or, more likely, not daring to ask for the money.
So they go without because if they don’t? Their children will.
Wake up. Smell the financial control. Change it.
Or Leave The Bastard.
