“It is important for the couple to work together in budgeting, so that the whole family can be happier.“
Who needs to be the breadwinner in the family?
The husband or the wife?
Well, fellow, of course it’s the man who should be working in the family. But because the world is modern today, wives who also work for the family are not rare anymore.
Why argue about who should be the breadwinner when it can be equal?
When husband and wife are equal breadwinners…
YOU ARE TEAM
Of course since you are married, help you with the responsibilities. If the usual set-up is that the husband is the breadwinner while the wife is the budgeter, in the situation that when you are the same breadwinner, you are also the same budgeter.
You will work as a team. Through thick and thin of your financial status, you will work together because you both earn money. If one person loses their job or their income drops, the other is there to support and cover the expenses.
MORE FINANCIAL GROWTH AND OPPORTUNITIES WILL FOLLOW
If you are both wise earner, wise spender and wise saver, you will surely have many opportunities to further grow your finances.
From what you earn from your respective jobs or businesses, you can even have a joint or collaborative business or investment. As long as you are good at planning, your family’s financial growth is sure to win!
Who wants to always be short on daily expenses? And who wants you and your spouse to always fight over money?
The fight over money is one of the reasons why the couple grew apart. Instead of working together, they criticize each other.
But if you are equally good at handling money, everything will flow smoothly, including your relationship as a whole. Because you can provide for the needs of each other and your children, without running short of daily expenses.
