Is the wife obligated to pay the bills even if the husband is working?
The Quran says Men are the protectors and maintainers of women.
My situation is different, my husband works and I work because I have a child from a previous marriage whos father doesnt help out financially. There have been months where my husband will not pay the bills and I am forced to pay them. What he does is wait until the day that the bills are due and tells me "I dont have the money" This has been the issue for 3 years, he knows that I am going to pay it and he takes advantage of me because I have a child to take into concideration and I wouldnt want my child to be without shelter, gas, lights or food. I have asked him why does he wait until the day the bills are due to tell me he cant pay them? He says "I dont have to tell you my financial business" telling me " There is not one marriage that the wife does not help out the husband and if the husband pays all the bills then there is something wrong with that marriage"
