in a family in which both spouses are working, should the bills be shared? and if so, in what format?
bills include nepa, petrol for the generator, DSTV, workers wages, food, household goods, etc
how should all these be paid for - should they make an equal 50/50 contribution? or should it be proportional to their salaries, or should it be the husbands responsibility to pay the bills because this is the man's 'traditional' role?
in my conversations with nigerian women, a lot of them seem to be of the opinion that paying the bills is the man's responsibility. while i can understand this in a single income earner household, i find it unfair that some consider it perfectly acceptable in a household where both are earning salaries. anyway, what do y'all think?
