Default What should a man pay for in a marriage

Should he pay for everything? Should expenses be shared if the wife is working? Is the money a woman earns all her own to spend as she pleases .........?

Depends on class and social situation. Generally I don't think most blokes are too worried. Outside of beer, chips and cars we have little need for money .

An absolute revelation - I should obviously have married you, but didn't listen to my better instincts.

Actually, I think MM should really have been my sister, she would have made sure that I married someone generous like Charismatic.....

...never mind, I pay my own way now and don't have to explain my expenditure to anyone.... this seems to be working OK as long as my bank manager doesn't catch up with me!!
