One of the posts that comes up with stunning regularity is the one about how can you buy a gift for your husband if you don't work. Really how does a SAHM think she doesn't work. It really irks me that we live in a society where SAHM's have such little value. I'm supposed to believe that by choosing to raise my kid, I am sponging off my husband or something. In my house the money my husband makes is our money. If I want to buy him a gift, the kids clothes, or myself a pair of shoes I do. The money is as much mine as it is his. I'm starting to feel like I'm in the minority though. Even when I worked the money was ours. What about all of you? Working or SAHM do you and your spouse consider the money shared, have a his/ hers/ ours system, or a strictly his/ hers division of money? It really irks me to see that type of post all the time. But maybe I'm the only one.
