Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Money Strains The Trust
Man earned money that his wife spent.
He made savings in his wife's name.
She didn't keep aside her money.
The integration was complete.
As long as husbands and wives
Keep their money separate
And shrewd in their expending,
They, without trust, expect a split.
