I have never made anywhere close to what Hubby makes. Partly because I chose a profession – journalism – that is low-paying and partly because he has been working up the career ladder seven years longer than me. But we have always pooled our income and had equal rights to spending the total.
Now that I am making next to nothing as a blogger and freelancer (I totaled $6 in my first week), I feel uncomfortable about spending as much as Hubby does.
When I asked Hubby how he felt, he insisted I still had equal rights to our reduced income. But I am not so sure.
After all, I am the one who decided to quit my job and embrace entrepreneurial journalism. Why should I force my career decision, and its fiscal implications, on Hubby? Tell me what you think by voting and leaving a comment.
