There is power in money...power in sex...power in well-prepared meals...power in the person who has the absolute control over the TV remote.

I think that the woman "controls" the money in the vast majority of households here.  It took quite a bit of time for my wife to accept that I wouldn't accept this.  I'm for joint accounts, but none of the banks here seem to have that option.

technically... thats defined as "financial abuse" under the umbrella of domestic violence,.. meaning, physical abuse is not the only way to control a person in a marriage setting

I enjoy the struggle

sounds like you enjoy (or in denial) living under the strong fisted dictatorship of your wife


Well, I enjoy the struggle. Marriage is supposed to be a 50:50 partnership. I was generous and accepted what I thought would be a 70:30 arrangement. However she is attacking my 30%. Currently the battle lines are shifting back and forth across the 75:25 line.

At our marriage banquet, I was warned by the Best Man:  "Shanghai women - they take good care of you, but they try to control you!".

Often she knows exactly how much loose change I am carrying in my pockets. That is really scary!!
