My aunt's friend had a very rich husband in Nigeria and I remember vividly how she tells us that she constantly steal money from him to boost the family's financial budget since he's very stingy when it comes to giving his non working spouse money but will be quick to splash big money on his numerous mistresses. That story got me thinking that she may be ignorant of what is hers and what is not since she thinks she's stealing from him. He refused to give her the safe combination but she got it somehow(does it matter how she got it?).
Question: Can you really steal from your spouse since it's community property under marital laws?
Was she right in what she was doing? Did her actions qualify as stealing since you can't steal from yourself?.
