Looking back at our families, in the earlier days, I don't think many mothers knew how much their husbands were earning. It did not matter much, the father would give a monthly budget money to mother who would magically make it fit and stretch till the month end.
Times have changed, earnings have increased, so has expenses, the role of mothers in the family set up has also changed. Both husband and wife need to know what comes in so that they can plan the expenses, education, and savings. There are some people who do not disclose their full incomes for various reasons.
With the stress of modern life, the divorce rates are also increasing. Although, an unpleasant situation, the spouse needs to know what the real earnings with the view that the correct support money, child education funds etc are paid, making the life of a single parent a little easy.
With the obvious changes in our family system and the new outlook of a modern-day couple, it is imperative that the earnings are common knowledge to both parties.
