Why do men find it difficult to tell their wives their salary?

I think this is an important issue because I still wonder up till now why a husband will not let his wife know his salary. To be frank, women always find it easy to tell their husbands the amount they earn and majority of men will not. I'm afraid, is it that we are too demanding or what?

And the funniest thing is that on that day that you tie the knot the pastors used to tell them not to keep secrets. Or am I getting it wrong? Is keeping your salary secret from your wife not a secret?

the financial strength of many women is the home front and "organised financial management"

but financial information of husband status it turns them around if not managed by the husband.

Then these husband married useless women.

I still see no reason why my husband should keep his income a secret.

It means the spouses have an idea of their financial goals and have a common understanding on treatment of issues. Education, projects, vacation etc

What's your point

If this is the way you want to live your marriage, then do it. This is not the kind of marriage I want to have.

My parents used to have a joint account. They both worked, they both paid the bills, they both enjoyed the money and they were both responsible if any investment went wrong. And I am from a well-to-do family.

First of all, I am not yet married. Secondly, how is your question relevant? Why should a HUSBAND keep his salary a secret ?Are we not one family? I fail to understand why our incomes should remain a secret. Is it something to be ahsamed of?

To be honest, I will not marry a man who will keep his income a secret. Either we are a family or we aren't. I have my own money and I won't keep it a secret how much it is. Either we worK as a unity or we are not meant to be together. I am not the kind of woman who can accept to be excluded from family finance. Soemone who keeps such matters a secret, has fishy business going on, in one wy or another.

Damiso..well done

In the west the economy is driven by debt

Discipline is key but I feel the best option is for both of them to be on the same page

Hiding info from his wife means they r not on the same page

Because she tends to buy things we don´t really need until the visa card is full and the our maximum debt capacity with the bank is reached. The more we earn, the more debt we have. I can´t stand this situation.

I am just about to have a pay-rise and honestly don´t feel like telling her, I just want to pay off my debts.

Maybe he is scared his wife is earning more than himself.

Some guys would be mortified if they thought or found out their wifes/partners earn more than them.

I think in this day and age it really is not such a big issue.

That's the way it should be.

A confident man who knows his wife loves and trusts him should have nothing to hide.

I dont understand why men do that. what is there to hide? if you dont trust your wife you shouldnt have married her!

The man may be earning less and is a little embarrassed by the situation so he hides his salary.

If it truly a marriage,that should not matter to him,an understanding and loving wife will remain so no matter how much he brings home.

There is nothing wrong in letting your better-half know what you earn. Infact, it facilitates planning for the home. The idea of shielding same from the wife is now very unpopular. My advice to men and women alike is to learn to cultivate trust and build on marital vows.

I think what we need here is trust most women are very clever they will never let thier husband know they have savings not to talk of how much they earn and if they know the husbands pay they will plan his salary before he does my people i lie?
