The relation ship of marriage is not on monetary alone but is a insuperable part to build healthy relation for life need's meticulous planning and execution by at least one of them without any bias, as they agreed upon before the culmination of marriage.
for being able to come up with the two dregs on the male race and generalize it.
The overwhelming majority of men out there, slave their backs away, paying for the family lifestyle and saving for the future and doing it very successfully, considering the very small number of bankruptcies in India, the high level of expensive education of the middle class and the retirement of people in the face of ever increasing inflation and a uselss government that does not even know it has to look after its old, unlike in say Germany.
Like the wayward / weak men in the above article, there are plenty of wayward / weak women. People whose main concern in life is what the neighbours have purchased whether a product like a TV or a service / experience, like a Vacation. Their main grouse is that way too much is being spent on the 'In - Laws', the same creatures, who gave birth to and brought up the earning bullock, a.k.a. husband.
I'm not complaining though, I'm a real man standing strong, and proud of it.

Totally accept your comments. Men work hard throughout their lives, sacrifice the whole life for their family but no one accepts it. Here, the plight of women is highlighted as if their husbands cheated them, but its only the never ending demands of the family forces them to take such financial risks.

Sir, your comments are interesting. While it is true that women tend to overspend and also put a lot of stress on the breadwinner, there are certain kinds of expenses that become commitments to meet- a price for living in the society. These expenses cannot be avoided and women generally take a lead. What must be spent ought to be understood by by both man and wife. Within limits, harmony is ensured; outside limits and stress results. It is left to the breadwinner how much to share, eventually.
I used to be very open about the finances earlier. But her habit of counting the chickens before they hatch and spending till the last penny made me stop inspite of her being a good planner especially in cases of crisis. I had been worrying for the past few days about this, but my wife is well aware that I have stopped sharing these info only for the above reasons.
