Does a SAHM have a right to say in how the household money is spent?
For example, if the husband/partner goes and buys himself a new car, or a new tv or something.....does the SAHM have any right to be put out by that?
Or, for example, if the husband/partner scratches the car......or damages it so it needs repairs, does she have a right to be pissed about it, even though it's his money that will be fixing it?
If you're a SAHM, do you have much say on how the money is spent, or do you control the money anyway?
I think I'm in the minority that my money is my money, and my husbands money is his money. Obviously, we help each other out where it's needed, but we have no joint account.
(I'm not a SAHM for the record)
I was discussing some of these things the other day, thought it could make a good debate :)
