My wife spends all my money despite having her own
26 September 2016, 13:34
Nairobi - (A male colleague walks in. He has a nice
jacket on. I compliment it. He is says, ‘It’s from my wife.’ Feeling really
happy for him I reply, ‘That is nice, your wife buys you stuff.’ He laughs at
me and replies, ‘Buy for me? Buy for me where? I had to pay for it.’ (At this
point I should add that his wife is in the clothing business. She brings them
in and sells them to her various clients. Her various clients includes her
Him: I never get anything for free from
that wife of mine. Do you know she never touches her money? Even when it comes
to doing her hair, her own hair, I will have to pay for it. On top of that, I
have to put some money in her account, for expenses but I am still the one that
foots everything. I do not know where all that money goes.
At first as a person you will be like that
is not a nice marriage. Marriage should be about partnership and helping each
You will also think, a good wife is one who
treats her husband and does not make him pay for anything. To keep the relationship
On the surface when you are getting told a
story with no background, you will be quick to judge a relationship/ marriage.
Because you have your own view s you wish to apply.
Thing is, I have a background on this
relationship and I know why this wife never spends any of her money.
Before this woman and her husband got
together, she was about to start college but fortunately or unfortunately, she
got pregnant and that is why they decided to settle down together. She has
never been able to go back since then. Meaning, if she is not smart, if
anything happened to this man she will have no front or back to run to.
The man on the other hand is an architect
doing well, so while he is still around, she will make sure he does everything
when he still can.
Things are never absolute in anything and I
am sure this woman knows that. Worst of all, I am not saying the man is going
to die but if he decided to cork up and die; she will be able to stand on her
own two feet. I am very sure of that. Her money is going to the account called,
She has no good qualifications except for
her business which is doing well. If he decides to ‘leave us’ (I am not saying
he is going to leave us), so on the account that something happens, this woman
will not be handicapped. Which is what I told the man.
‘If anything is to happen to you tomorrow,
be happy that your wife is being stingy with her money because I bet you, your
son will not lack anything.’
That is what smart women do. We look into
the future and strategize and plan for it. You cannot depend on a man because
everything looks good now. It can turn for the worse.
Something else I should add, the man does
like his women. I am also sure the wife knows that because he complains about
how much she goes through his phone.
In the eventuality that he decides he is in
love with someone else and is done with her; she will not be desperate. Which
is what we are going for here.
A woman being able to take care of herself
when the man decides to grow horns. So don’t be too quick to judge her because
in my estimation I am thinking that this is a very smart woman/ wife.
