This Husband Expects His Stay-at-Home Wife to Contribute to Expenses After She Gets a Part-Time Job but She Doesn’t Agree

A man recently asked if he did something wrong by asking his wife, who doesn’t work full time, to pay more of the household bills with her part-time income. Here’s what he had to say.

When the man and his wife married, they decided she would be a stay-at-home mom. The man’s wife is Russian but has had little contact with her biological family since their wedding ceremony, as they are alcoholics.

She has lived there since she was a teen, and eventually had a daughter with the man. When they got married, they decided that the man would give his wife an allowance so she could buy what she wanted despite not having a job.

The man would fund any other expenses that the two agreed to spend as he could easily afford it due to his job. This has always been a point of contention for the man and his wife as she has asked multiple times for him to raise her allowance.

Sometimes, if they disagree on a purchase, such as a toy for their young daughter, the woman would use her allowance to buy it and then expect the man to reimburse the cost.

Ever since their daughter started school, the man’s wife has started doing a few jobs on the side, such as dog walking. Though he did not necessarily approve of the idea, he knew he couldn’t stop her from doing what she wanted.

Due to these jobs, his wife now has less time to be a stay-at-home mom, which is what they agreed on when they got married. Due to this, the man recently told her that he expects her to pay for the house expenses in proportion to what she earns.

From there, she got angry at him, and the two argued. Though things seemed to get better after the argument, the man still felt that she was upset with him.

His wife had held some minor things against him to further her case, such as the several times he asked her for money as he did not have the change required for whatever small purchase(s) they were making.

Not knowing whether he was right to ask his wife to pay towards the bills, especially after their argument, he turned to Reddit for help.
