    The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful, generous husband who gave all his hard earnings to me, and never asked where my earnings goes. Though not enough, we simply put our trust to HIM.This is a powerful piece, with message loud and clear to those wives who are not earning and depends solely on his husband. A nice write, indeed.

    this says so much for the plight of women...who is she justifying to? the husband? .. in a lot of 3rd world countries, the women are solely responsible for budgeting and taking care of household expenses, whether they too work or are stay-at-home moms, and have to account for the expenses to their husbands who because of the economic hardships cannot believe the money is never enough...
    very powerful Sandra... I salute.... (Report) Reply

    I like how your words draw attention to the effect that money can have upon our lives; both by its presence and by its absence. (Report) Reply

    This is certainly the case for some women and especially when they are not earning anything.
    The solution I think is to work part time, and get the load of the provider, but not to stress out the housewife. Some women however, are bullied and as you say it can be a nightmare. You have a way Sandra of getting the point across in a dynamic way. Great work! 10 love Karin (Report) Reply
