A Ghanaian young woman who is set to marry soon has recently taken to social media to lament about how her soon to be husband wants finances in their marriage to be managed.
The post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the Facebook timeline Abena Manokekame, a popular page had the lady anonymously sharing that she had a discussion with her fiance about how financial responsibilities would be shared after they marry and he revealed, he is looking at sharing it equally with her.
"Now here is my worry, in as much as we have been discussing issues pertaining to how we are going to manage our home, one issue in particular has never popped up until recently. This is the case, we were having a discussion about how we are going to manage our finance and according to him he said that we should share responsibilities 50/50."
The wife-to-be added that she was raised with the understanding that the man is supposed to provide for his family and the woman, provide support where need be and not that responsibilities be shared equally.

"I don't know if my mind is playing tricks on me because in my opinion I told him that a woman is supposed to be a helper and since he is to provide for the family, I would do anything in my power to support him in every way I can and I even quoted the story of Adam in the Bible, but to him, he was against the fact that I brought the holy scriptures into the conversation since we're are dealing with the physical but not spiritual (according to him)"

From Yaa Adu:
I don’t think there should be rules when it comes to finances in marriage cos there are going to be times where the woman has to foot all the bills when the man is down and vice versa.
Annie Eyram commented:
If he would help 50/50 with chores and taking care of the babies l'll personally not mind and you should be happy he is being honest so the ball is in your court
