Wala din ako allowance from my hubby tho fulltime mom ako hindi ako nanghihingi ng allowance...lahat ng padala nya para sa mga bata. Basic needs at savings..then hiwalay ang padala para sa tuition fee..pero kung may gusto ako bilhin na wala sa budget na pinapadala nya ay sasabihin ko sa kanya then kung aprub sa kanya gora lang ako then minsan china-charge ko sa cc..syempre sya din naman magbabayad nun..hehe..gustong-gusto ko bumili ng designer bag kasi wala ako maski isa.gusto ko lang mafeel kung anong feeling ng meron nun.. :) ..pero pag naiisip ko naman na di ko din magagamit kasi hindi ako mapormang tao hindi ko mababagayan yun bag...ano yun naktshirt lang tapos naka-prada pa hehee...kaya simple at mumurahin lang ang binibili ko.minsan japan surplus pa na super functional sakin.lalo na yun tipong 3way na anello type tapos 300 ko lang nabili at in pristine condition hehe.. :)

Paghatian niyo ang mga gastusin.. Sabihin mo wala ka na naiipon at kailangan ng emergency fund at retirement fund etc.

halos pareho tayo
me work din wife ko and malaki sweldo (although di ko alam kung sino samin mas malaki sweldo)
kaso sadly ako lang nagbabayad ng utilities, bills, gas etc
ultimo tuition ng mga bata ako lahat
nakakasama lang ng loob pag nakikita ko bumibili siyang mamahalin na designer bags
50k+ for a bag? WTF
minsan gusto ko makita kung ano gagawin niya kung mawala ako dahil sa sama ng loob  :'(
para akong si donna summer literally  :-[

Para sakin, basta gusto mo at worth it naman sa ikasasaya mo, why not save for it?

If nagpapadala hubby mo, paminsan minsan Baka may extra, puede mo naman itabi. Then if nakaipon ka na, tsaka ka magpaalam sa Kanya before you intend to buy.

Or better yet, you can look for a part time job if free ka. Or full time (Malay mo may career pala para sayo). Then you won't feel guilty if you need to buy stuff for yourself.

Just throwing in some ideas :)

I misread the thread title, akala ko allowance ni hubby from me. Lels.

I know naman how much my husband earns, so calculated na yan after nya mag bayad and magbigay saken kung magkano matitira sa kanya. hay naku. wrong thread yata talaga ako! hahaha.

anyway, husband has list of payables, tapos he sends me an amount para sa ibang payables. the expectation is, he pays for ALL, as in all and then his extra + my salary = savings.

the extra should be my allowance from the money he gave me I guess? :-\

so I think I should ask for an allowance from him no? explicit amount para masaya.

My husband provides everything that I need kasama na minsan ang wants. Kahit pang facial spa, body spa minsan pati nga kikay stuff ko. Kapag may gala ako with friends binibigyan nya rin ako ng pera pero minsan di ko na tinatanggap kasi may card naman ako un na lang ginagamit ko. May savings ako mula nun single ako hindi nya rin pinapakialaman. Then pinag open nya rin ako ng new account para anothe savings. May maintenance money ako sa debit card ko rin mga 10k pero hindi ko naman nagagastos madalas kasi nga lahat naman binibili na nya for me. Si hubby kasi iba hindi iniisip ang sarili kaya minsan nagagalaw ko rin un pera sa debit card kasi binibili ko sya ng mga small things na ayaw nya bilhin kasi meron pa raw sya kahit minsan need ng palitan like socks or cap mga small things.

I don't have an allowance from hubby because I don't need one. I have a good job with an even better salary so lahat ng gusto kong bilhin di ko na kelangan ipabili sa kanya because I can very well afford to do so on my own and I like it that way. May freedom ako sa pera ko, which is turo ng nanay ko teenager pa lang ako.

^ I think it is good to teach our daughters to be independent. Para once they get married, di kailangan umasa sa asawa. What if kuripot yung mapangasawa nya, so patay.

When I was married once before, I also have my own career. Technically, wala din akong allowance pero my ex gives me monthly lump sum for household expenses. Kaya if kulang, ako na sagot. If sobra, sakin din mapunta.

I Guess case to case Ito. There are couples kasi where they have agreed the Wife stays home and hubby works - this set up perhaps warrant some discussion - kung ikaw yung wife, don't just agree to stop working. Believe in yourself na you should also be capable. Pano if mawalan ng wrk Si hubby (which is so common these days)? Or pano if bigla mauna sya sa heaven (knock on wood). These things we cannot foresee kaya it would be good to have your own income and savings. And kung may allowance pa, why not 😁

^Agree.  My mom's constant reminders while growing up, especially about being financially independent, have served me well.

Wala akong allowance. Lahat ng money namin consolidated na. If we need to purchase a significant item we discussed then kuhain sa joint account.

Meron kami allowance pero yun ay for daily expenses na namin. Sa joint account din yun kinukuha.

I also don't have allowance. My hubby's salary is transferred to me via online banking. I work as well and keep my salary. My husband told me I am the chief finace officer😜

We consolidate our salaries every pay day tapos we keep lang with us a certain budget/allowance that would be enough for a month. I ask him to give me 10QR lang per day para enough lang for lunch and wala ng pambili ng junk foods and chocolates...  I usually have labis na 3-4QR tapos pag napadami ko na yung labis ko, pinapang carwash ko naman. It works naman for us. ;D

I earn more than my husband so I don't get an allowance.  At the moment, I don't think what he earns is even enough to cover the basic needs of our household.

I buy my own bags, diamonds, you name it.  Our kids are not yet in school, but even that I will probably shoulder.  Everything I have, is all because of God's grace I know, I couldn't possibly have this if not for Him.  Sometimes when I see that he is slacking, it makes me sad especially during my "red" days (...like now.  I'm more hormonal and angry).

We're newly wed and we agreed that I will handle the finances. :) We are both working and though I have a pretty decent job, he is earning much more.

We're not married yet but me and fiance manage our own paycheck. Mas prefer ko na i-split namin every household expenses pero fiance insisted on paying everything (i.e. house/car insurance, retirement fund nya, emergency fund, travel fund, health insurance, grocery, utility bills, and our daughter's and my son's savings). Since mas malaking ang gastos nya, I insisted na I'll be the one who'll pay for my son's tuition fee (son ko from my first marriage).

My personal expenses (salon, clothes, etc.) I'm paying for those using my personal savings kahit na may pinrovide na separate credit card si fiance (just for me) for that type of expenses coz according to him "Happy Wife, Happy Life!" :D

I am a working mom and ako naghahawak ng pera namin combined. I do the budgeting. So no need to give me allowance, we just talk kapag may kailangan na pagkagastusan and we both should agree if may expense na malaki.

hanggang saan lang ang sustento ni Mister?
« Reply #136 on: April 27, 2017, 12:52:26 am »
I just got married nung January lang. Sa catholic church kami kinasal. My husband and I are both 26 years old, wala pa kaming anak. OFW siya sa UAE, nagtatrabaho bilang office engr. Ako naman sa probinsya nagtatrabaho bilang school clerk. Hanggang ngayon nakatira pa din ako sa bahay ng magulang ko dahil maliit lang ang sweldo ko. Sa aming dalawa ng asawa ko, siya ang mas malaki ang kinikita. Pero hindi siya nagbibigay ng pera sakin. Ayaw niya na humihingi ako ng pera kapag halimbawa may pinapaasikaso siya sa aking papeles na required pang pumunta sa region office. Pati sa pagse-save ng money at pag-invest, gusto niya galing sa kanya kanya bulsa ang perang iinvest pero dapat beneficiary siya.

May ilang misis akong nakausap na ang set up sa kanila ng mister nya, kung magkano lang ang kelangan ng anak, yun ang ang ibibigay na pera sa kanila. Ganito na ba talaga ang trend sa mga mister ngayon? Kung magkano lang ang contribution sa anak yun lang ang ibibigay sa misis? Kelan ba mag-uumpisa ang sustento ni mister? Kelan magtatapos? Kapag may mga anak na? Paano kung walang anak? Tuluyan nang wag umalis sa bahay ng magulang para libre na ang gastusin?

Yung mga kasal sa simbahang katolika, nasusunod pa ba ang aral ng simbahan patungkol sa arrhaes? O palamuti lang yung coins sa kasal?

hello!  grabe naman ang mister mo, kahit papeles niya na kailangan asikasuhin hindi galing sa kanya ang bayad? sa kaso ko naman, more than 10 years na kami and from the very beginning sinabi ko talaga na ayokong makitira sa parents niya. yun kasi gusto niya at ng parents niya rin para maka.save sa rent and other expenses while he was finishing his studies. ayun natuto siya (at ako rin) to budget our income and solve our domestic problems on our own. we've always shared everything, so never ko na experience ang sustento...we both have access to our money, and take what ever we need. to give you ideas regarding sustento/allowance of other wives here, you can check this thread: http://www.femalenetwork.com/girltalk/index.php?topic=280095.0

my advice is to talk to your husband regarding this, actually dapat before pa kinasal nag.usap na kayo kung anong arrangement ang gusto niyo. you can also tell him na  gusto mong bumukod, which is also better para may bahay siya na uuwian when he comes home. tell him everything that concerns you, and listen to his side. let us know kung may progress and good luck!

^^napag usapan nyo na ba yan? Anong long term plans nyo? Susunod ka ba sa kanya sa abroad? Or uuwi ba sya dito eventually para dito kayo bumuo ng pamilya? Gano kayo katagal mag bf-gf bago kayo nagpakasal? Issue na ba sa inyo before ang pera?

No allowance per se because fiance and I pool our money into a joint account, so lahat ng both of our expenses come from that account. Swerte lang kasi kung gaano ako ka-waldas sa pera, ganun kagaling magsinop si h2b so balanced kami hehe. Lahat ng needs namin (more on sa'kin lols) naka budget talaga, ultimo waxing at retouching ng hair color ko. ;D

I don't think magbabago set up namin even after the wedding. We both do not like the idea of splitting the expenses up tapos assign sa'kin ganito, ganyan sa kanya. Parang roomies lang ang peg sabi ni h2b but that's only our opinion, saka 'di rin pwede sa'min ganun kasi he earns a little over twice than I do, soooo...
