I think this debate is relative. You need to understand your wife and the role of your mother in one's life. I as a person must definitely ensure my wife knows what my mum did in my life. No matter what that woman gets from me, I still believe it's not enough to compensate her.
Once my wife knows that the woman is too great to be ignored, she will even encourage me to do more.
More so, we'll have our children as well, does she wants to be treated that way?
You sir are the WISEST

Your Opinion please

It depends, it depends on the type of wife and her attitude towards your mum

Consultation is a very wrong word to use here. You don't have to consult and also don't have to hide or secretly send money to anyone either. Secretly sending money actually signifies greater weakness.

If you have to secretly send money to your parents out of fear of wifey's reaction, then you're a WEAK man lacking all form of respect and value.

The dream is to get to a level where your wife can send money to your parents using your/ her mobile banking app and vice versa. Doing things respectfully without secrets is the goal.

In my opinion, you don't need her permission BUT you need to atleast let her know.

She's your wife. You guys are supposed to be one.

Yes!

A man must consult his wife before giving money to his mother!angry

In fact he must always screenshot his salary alert and send to his wife immediately he gets it!

He must ask for his wife's permission for any and every monetary transaction he wants to do, even if its to buy clothes or drinks for himself.

you must be a weak, feeble minded, spineless, lily-livered pussy worshipper to ask such a question!

@op if your family put finaces together at the end of every month and decides what is been spent in a month, then you have to let your wife know and vise versa.

But if you are a traditional Nigerian man that believes in providing for his family irrespective of what the wife earns, by all means you owe her no explanation as long as you carter for your family.

My 2 cents wink

Reasonable answer.

Some people are just emotionally myopic!!

I think the word "consulate" is the problem,it sounds somehow authoritative to some people..

What is bad for me as a husband to inform my wife that am sending money to my mum?, I may not know the kind of home most people come from, but my own mother would advice me to let my wife know, in fact she would call my wife to thank her behind me..

The only time I will dare do that without my wife's consent is if she isn't in good terms with my mum..

We seem to have a lot of men who don't know who they are, yes God made you the head but it comes with sacrifice not force, trying to stamp authority makes you look weak. A leader treats everyone including his wife with love and respect. Of course he should tell his wife before he sends money to his mum, what's there to hide. As he's sending to his mum, he should also think of his mother in law too. Marriage is not for kids, to enjoy it, there's need for maturity and wisdom

I think there are 90% of below 18 age group on nairaland, that's the reason for the childish responses, they're still struggling to pass JAMB talkless of giving mature advice on marriage grin

unless the man is a slowpoke suffering from the chronic effect of EFO riro.

The only true love that exist in this life is between a man and his mother. All other love are secondary . Though there is exception but on a very few cases.

If they are rich, they don't need to notify anyone before giving out money. Do you notify your husband or wife before you give alms to the destitute you meet on the road. Its when you both have peanut in your account that you will argue or need permission to give money to people.

I think this solely depends on the type of relationship you have with your spouse and in-laws. I have an aunt whose husband gladly let her know if he wants to send money to his family. Will she object? No!! Instead she will add more to it and tell him that his mum might have other needs to meet. Atimes, she even ends up sending extra to the mum after her hsuband has sent. When I asked the reason why she does this, all she could say is that her mother in-law is also her mum. I've also seen situations where the in-laws feel comfortable calling their son's wife for help because their son is difficult to get across to. As for me, this solely depends on your spouse and the laid down relationship with your family. Some spouses are not to be told about financial obligation as they will flare up and turn it into marital issues of putting ur mum above them. In conclusion, know your spouse and observe their love and commitment to your family

Baba, I'm a very constructive person. There is notin like d only true love. If that be d case, then don't marry. A man must love his wife even more than his kids as she is one with me. But I don't support behaving like a Sisi to give out to people. As I said earlier, even her own mum will I not tell her. Shikina
