    Heated Question..

    Advertisements
    I have a friend who is my age, doesnt go to school, doesnt work and has no children. She is married. Oh and I should add that she does not do housework nor cooking cause she doesnt like to.

    She and her DH faught for weeks that she should have half of the tax return money to spend for shopping for herself.

    Now, I am a supporter that if its someone in her situation she can be contributing something to their household. And I also dont feel she was entitled to half of the $$ either.

    Am I the only one who feels this way? And I am sure Ill catch holy hell for posting this, but Im curious as to how people feel.
    Are you scrappy enough for me

    I see your point, but if she spends freely from his earnings the rest of the year, why should the tax refund be any different?
    I have worked on and off throughout our marriage, and never made close to what dh makes. But we take turns with refunds, bonuses, and anything else like that. Usually when it's my turn, I put it towards debt or savings, and spend a little on me. When it's his turn, he spends it mostly. It works for us, even though technically I didn't earn half that money, or anywhere near half of it.

    I definitly agree with you...if she was contributing to the household I would say yes she is entitled to half but it doesn't seem that way from what you said

    If we didn't have kids, I'd be working. There is no way I can be THAT lazy.

    Maybe I'm feeling sensitive today, but I'm 29, no kids, and haven't found a job yet. While I do clean, and cook (sometimes), I feel like I contribute in ways that are not quite as clear - like packing up and moving all the damn time.

    This is just really irking me.
