I read / participate in BabyCenter's message boards. I've seen several posts throughout the past year that I have been on there about his money or her money. I have never understood this. My husband and I first moved in together, we kept our money separate for the first couple of months. We each paid 1/2 of everything. Then, we got engaged and it all combined. Why not? We were getting married anyway.
I see posts a lot about buying things with "his" money because the wife is a stay at home mom and doesn't make any money. WHAT?! I don't understand why it would only be his money anyway. Besides, could you imagine how much you'd make if you were working..doing the things that someone does while they are a stay at home mom. Even if you just think of the money that would be spent on daycare if the wife wasn't at home.
In my opinion, it's not like the wife is really NOT working. Sure, she doesn't have a job outside the home. It's still a lot of work either way.
I'm not a stay at home mom. I have my days where I don't do a whole lot, but other days where I work my butt off. lol
