I just recently became a SAHM and I'm so use to working to have my own money. Now, I feel weird asking for money from my husband, and before you go on bashing me for "asking" for money from my husband, please realize that I became a SAHM for my daughter to have levels of normalcy in her life. It would kill me on a daily basis when my 5 year old daughter would worry about who was picking her up that day of school. My husband and I both decided that me staying at home would be the best for the family, and plus I love it! My questions for all you SAHM is, do you feel guilty for asking for money from your SO or do you just spend money as if you were earning it as well. Also, what are you duties as a housewife/SAHM? TIA!Answer Question

I take care of all the finances so I don't have to ask for money. My husbands checks are direct deposited and I pay just about all our bills online. We never really carry cash. I work from home(Mia Bella's) and I just deposit most of the money I earn every week or so. We keep some cash for the kids allowances.

I spend it as if it was mine. If it is a big purchase then I talk it over with my husband first. I do pretty much everything, even the finances. My husband does the outside yard work and will cook dinner on the weekends. He also helps when I ask. I am involved in a few playgroups and MOPS. I also am a full-time student. I volunteer at my sons school too.
