Ladies and gentlemen, we are officially in the era of breadwinner wives.
Women are far out earning their men, proving to be a problem in some relationships.
Yes, men and women react to money differently. Yes, they have different scripts. And yes, I think it’s important to talk about it, instead of pretending money is the same for everybody.
So what happens to the social norms when a woman earns more than her man?
A woman who bragged that she earns half a million shillings a month, narrated how she lives life happily with her jobless husband.
She spoke on the Maina and Kingangi show
I work earning half a million a month, he is jobless and wakes up to wash my car, and I expect to find house chores done when I come back home from work
We have been together for three years and I provide everything without complaining, He does house chores and it makes me happy, even when we go out I pay the bills without complaining, and he is ok with that and I respect him, he has never cheated on me and neither have I. I am a happy woman maina
Dear Classic fam, I want to hear your stories. If you earn more than your partner, does it affect your relationship? How does gender play a role in your finances?
