Wife Gives Husband A 16-Pages Lists Of Expenses To Compensate Her Financial Loss During Pregnancy

Getting married is easy but managing a happy life can be difficult.

Getting married is fun. You have a partner to share your life with. It is not as easy as it sounds but it is a roller coaster ride and only those who are understanding live a happily married life. In some marriages, one partner works and the other partner manages the house while in some marriages, both the partners work and divide the responsibilities equally. Today, we have a story of a husband who has been married to his wife for 6 years now. OP and his wife both work and earn good salaries and have their finances separate while they divide all the expenses 50-50. They decided to have a child. The wife told her husband that she would be given a one-year maternity leave by her company but she would be given half salary for the first six months and the rest of the six months will be unpaid leaves so she wants him to compensate her for the loss of her salary. Scroll down to get into the details.
