**A CINDIRELLA TALE**

Just like the million others who is living under the same sky, I'm just trying to find that significant one to write my own fairy tale stories...

Marriage and Money

Recently I read in a magazine article that there was a 26 years old who spend thousand odd dollars on a small jar of skincare product every 6 months. I was amazed, not by the amount of money that the 26 years old had spent but the fact that it was paid for by her husband. In fact, I often wonder how do these girls do it?

I am not a materialistic girl looking to marry a rich husband. I am perfectly fine with earning and spending my own money. However, sometimes, I just couldn't help but wonder if the amount of money that a man is willingly to spend on a woman is tied to how much he loves her. Let me quote two real life examples.

Example 1:

Woman A and her husband A who are married with 2 kids. Both of them earned equally much. Husband A gave about $200 as household chores money and insisted on spiltting the remaining amount of bills equally between them. Husband A does not want to spend a single cent extra on his wife. He even insisted that his wife should pay half the bills for the delivery fees of both children. Not surprisingly, Husband A does not help out at all with the taking care of the kids.

Example 2:

Woman B and her Husband B had been married for about 2 years with no children. Both earned equally much as well. In this case, Husband B volunteered to pay for all the bills, mortagage installment, car installment etc. Every year, they will take at least 2 overseas trips with everything paid for by the husband, even the wife shopping money. Husband B also gave his wife a sub-card for her spending locally. In short, the wife had not paid for a single thing with her own money in the 2 years that she is married.

Before you go off to say that Couple B earn more than Couple A, let me clarify that the salaries of both couples are compariable.

So, who do you think loves his wife more? Husband A or Husband B? Is it really superficial of me to think that Husband B loves his wife more?

I am not advocating that the husband should pay for everything but if he hesitate to spend a single cent on you, won't you wonder why?

Perhaps someone will be able to shed light on this issue for me.

    I have to say that I completely agree with you. I think Husband A is selfish and is all about money. That is not how it should be. I think both, the woman and the man, should put their money together because it is just that THEIR money. Husband B is completely selfless which is so sweet.. it shows that money is not top priority, but taking care of his wife is.

    I think money is an independent variable and the males' characters are the dependent variable. Man A is a jerk while Man B is not.
