Actually most people are guilty of lying to their Lovers and partners about the actual amount they earn from their salary.

I believe most partners especially the Men have a reason for doing it, I think this can cause disunity and lack of trust if the other partner finds out about the actual amount you earn! What are the reasons behind this lie?

I came across the screenshot below from my IG story while scrolling about this lady asking for advice on this issue!
Experienced Nairalanders should share reason for this secret abeg!

The other gender are manipulative..... they want to know how you go about spending a dime and what you spend it on, as if they were there during the hustle and bustle..

Imagine you earning 150k, and you been faithful with her, trust me she will give you billing of 120k and still claim she's helping you to manage.... even to take care of yourself and siblings will be hard.

And these sets of creatures will have 2milli sitting in their account doing nothing and yet still spend your salary with you to the last penny claiming they re broke... but if God help you with a good one, she go just unexpectedly surprise you by lifting some of your burdens off your shoulder, might be kids school fee or rent, but only 10% of them can do that....

Sometimes you cannot tell your partner everything about your finances to avoid trouble and problems. The 50k may be for savings towards a project or to take care of some family issues. Your husband or wife may frown at you doing that but when they dont know the wahala is not there. Marriage and relationship in its simplest form is transactional

Here is what my married friend told me "don't ever allow your wife know how much you are earning because if she knows she would keep demanding until she is sure you salary is finished".
That was his on personal experience. According to him he didn't tell his wife about subsequent promotions.

Hm but I still think in a marriage partners should have mutual understandings about their earnings, projects and all instead of keeping most issues like a secret which could lead to breach of Trust!

But I feel trust and honesty is Paramount in a relationship or marriage, you have to be plain and honest just like your @ bolded statement

it will all be balance if the two of them work together. you will imagine some women can't buy any thing without demanding for a refund even when she earn more than the man. yes the man is the one resposible for the home need but the woman too need to help as far she know she can

You really can't trust women when it comes to knowing your salary. My sisters and mom ask me this question and I'm never comfortable about it. Why would you like to know?! Whereas, my dad would only ask "hope the pay is okay", but women?! They'll want to know how much, so they can help you calculate how much you'll be giving them.

Btw, I believe spouses should know how much they earn. I'll never marry anyone who I'm not gonna feel comfortable telling how much I earn.

Normally, we women are highly inquisitive in Nature!

According to your last paragraph, marrying the right person will make you comfortable to share your earnings!

Most ask this kinda question so that they can start planning on other people's money. Don't be surprised if she's doesn't earn anything.

Why must you collect it back? Are they not also your kids?
When the man is down, the woman should step in and help, then the man can carry on when he's back up.
