Not only a big deal, but that is what responsible marriage is all about.

I find it some how weird when my friends tell me their wives do not know how mcuh they earn. It saves you a lot of trouble if you are not making enough, and especially when you have a single source of income.

My spouse, not only knows how much I earn, but she manage the whole thing. She is very thrifty and so manage it far better than me. My folks no longer ask me for money, and they all tell her all their needs in advance. So that she plans and include everybodies needs within the limited budget. Alll I do is to make sure I open as much multiple sources of income as possible.

Old school mentality not to tell your wife your salary earnings.Nowadays,women work as hard as men and contribute to the upkeep of the family.That's marriage.

However,most couples don't get to enjoy this because of the shaky foundation of their relationship.maybe they're in just to procreate children and satisfy their parents,i dunno.

I tell my girlfriend everything right from my pocket money,then to my take home pay,now.what do i have to lose?

i am not married yet but my fiance' Knows how much i earn.

knowing is different from bringing it out of my pocket, if i dont want to spend i dont want to

she knows the plans ahead and hwo to spend the money so why hide it when women are gifted with natural ideas on how to spend money.

i repeat Knowing does not force it our of ur pocket

Yes, he should.

However, if he think that the woman is bad with money, she still have to know, but dont have to put all the money where she can access it.

Likewise, if the man is the one that is bad with money, the woman shd not let him have access to all the money.

I wl like to know if u are married?

But let me not deviate. I presumed yr wife shd even ask u, how much u are earning from yr job. Not only for her request but for other things like Savings for upcoming children, projects like personal house and finally for her to know where to come in, to help you or support you, whether financially or otherwise.

Pls my advice is, dont wait 4 her to ask. Tell her. I was saved so many stress becos my wife knew how much I earn, what the saving will be at the end of efry mnth for our own project and our 2children schl fees.

Pls dont make a mistake. Call her and plan together. That is the basis 4 u to know some things about her too, but if u hide and u r demanding submission and transparency, U wll meet wt waterloo, becos she wl refuse u even yr right as her husband.
