Couples Hiding Their Earnings From Each Other, Right Or Wrong? by NLbully(m): 10:28pm On Nov 29, 2017
This came to my amusement when I asked someone if he knows how much his partner is earning and to my surprise he said they don't disclose it to each other ( Can't really understand what led to the conversation )

How do you see this, do you think it is right for your partner not to know how much you earn as salary ??

It largely depends on the kind of woman that you find yourself entangled to.

If you tell some women your monthly income, your own don finish with incessant demands

The question is for those whose partners are civil servants.
How can you know the monthly earning of a business man/woman?
But generally its not a big deal knowing, my hubby don't know how much I'm paid as salary because such information is not relevant to him.
A man should be focused on each of their own earnings and financial empire and not be concerned about what each other earns monthly .

A wife must never know what her husband earns or his source of income.
It is none of her business, her job is just to enjoy the wealth and make babies for the man, that's why they are called 'oriaku'.

But a woman's income must be known,
It's source well defined;
Before you unknowingly start eating food cooked from money gotten through prostitution.

Wrong. There is no place for secrecy in marriage else distrust will set in.

Re: Couples Hiding Their Earnings From Each Other, Right Or Wrong? by AntiWailer: 10:56pm On Dec 01, 2017
It depends.

There is no answer that fits all


If you marry a spender who will be breathing heavily until he / she finish spending whatever you have.

You will be doing your children strong thing if you let your partner know the exact amount you earn. You will not have any savings.


If your partner can help manage your finance then why not ?

There is no formula for a great marriage. You can apply Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva method and you will still not last for 6months.

Be emotionally intelligent. That is the key.

Different strokes for different folks. I don't hide mine from my wife because it saves a lot. As a matter of fact, na she be d finance minister.

I may not disclose other earnings aside salary accurately sha but I let her have an idea. You no say women too dey kaku. Before she go dey calculate money for bottles and nkwobi/catfish for me.

All in all, it is good to be transparent with your spouse. It breeds peace and progress in the family.
