SO and I have recently began planning our future together (i.e. moving to a different state, joining our accounts, ttc, starting joint retirements, etc) Needless to say, we are making marriage/family preparations. Well last night we were discussing everything about how things should be to keep order in the house and such. i am a bit old fashioned and he is from a different culture so we are in agreeance that he is the head of the household, has the final say so when it comes to decisions, etc. We also agreed that I will stay home with our child until he/she goes to school, (Our daughter is 4 so she is already in school) but he agrees that I need to finish my degree so that after being a SAHM I have skills to enter my chosen field... Anyway, he decided I get $1000 a month in "mad money" as he calls it, which is my allowance/spending money for the month for whatever. The problem comes with the stipulation... (con.)

What??????? I wouldn't do it, sounds like he is wanting to control your life, and dangling 1,000 bucks in your face to take the bait. I would not agree to that. (BTW) I don't know him, but he sounds like if you get married you will not have a say in it anyway, and he is doing this agree to this agree to that thing for right now, but wait til after the wedding it might not be the same. I would think about if that was really I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
