Is it okay for the wife to be the sole money maker in the relationship? In a marriage, people often view the husband should be the one making the money or making the most. I know many moms who are the ones making the money while the husband stay home and watch the kids or do what the wife would do. I see nothing wrong with that as long as both parties are happy with their roles, but many will disagree. Either way, the kids are being take care of, bills are getting paid, so who's business is it who is working and who is not?
