It is a commonly held assumption that the man should be the provider of the household and the wife should be responsible for housekeeping and for taking care of the kids. But what if the man is homeless and jobless, while the woman has a great career going for her? This story will definitely change the way you look at marriage as an institution…
A guy who had no job got married to a banker, despite his fears and several advice that it’s not good to marry without a job. Every month the girl would give the guy her full salary of $80,000 after removing her tithes. The guy would give the wife $20,000 for personal upkeep and the guy determined what happened to the remaining money.
This happened for three good years. There was happiness in the family and the wife never refused to do her primary home duties for that 3 years, despite wrong advice from friends that “you can’t be paying the bills and still be doing all the work”.
After a few years, the man hit some good luck. There was a particular month when the guy used about $50,000 to travel from region to region for different interviews. He finally got a job with a good firm. His salary was $380,000 monthly for a start. He bought his first car (a brand new one) for 2.2 million dollars; he gave the wife the car key, and continued to take public transport to work for about three years. Then he bought a second car for four million, took the keys of the first car and gave his wife the keys of the second car. They eventually moved into their own house after a few years.
One day, the wife was looking for some documents. She stumbled on a file neatly hidden. When she opened it, she saw her wedding picture when she was very slim in the first page of the file. She then saw that the documents of everything they’ve purchased, from the cars to the house, were all written in her name! At the last page was the husband’s wedding picture and a note written by him:
”MY WIFE IS ALL I HAVE GOT. NOT EVEN THIS HOUSE WORTH MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IS MINE” .
