It never ceases to amaze me at how many times, when couples come in to the store to shop, its the man that carries all the money and how often the woman has to actually "ask" if he will buy it for her.
It's kind of annoying.
Yes it IS mostly older couples, like older that 70's, but I am also amazed at how many younger
women do not seem to have control of their own money, and have to either ask the man, or "persuade" the man to let her make her purchase.
I say if you make your own money, then it's your money and not your man's.
And if you worked in the home raising the kids, you STILL shouldn't have to persuade or justify, he should recognize the value of what you've done and pony-up straight away.
