He Who Holds the Purse Strings Holds the Power

When abused women of decades past advised their married daughters to have separate bank accounts, they didn't advise this because they wanted to ruin marriages; rather they knew the kind of men their daughters were involved with and the chances their relationships might be good in the long-term was highly unlikely.  Men with much or little money that don't allow wives any access, not even a peak at their bank statements, do indeed hold the power.  Their worries over what their wives might do with their finances is irrelevant here.  To stay on point, this blog entry relates to husbands with money controlling wives who don't have any unless they choose to give them some.

Some of these controlling husbands, boyfriends, or lovers don't want their women to work.  They will either sweet-talk the women into avoiding employment, change employment or quit a job especially if there are too many of the opposite sex, pout about their wives' choice, give their women the silent treatment when they mention work, or verbal and/or physical abuse their partners if they should talk about accepting a job offer.  There is indeed something wrong with the man who does these things to his wife.  She should feel support from her mate not emotional or physical abuse whether she stays home or works outside of it, but some men are more concerned about getting their way and less concerned about how their partners feel.

Telling a partner what you bought, how much you spent, and how your money is yours and he or she can't tell you anything about it is not only cruel, but sooner or later you will pay for your verbal insults.  Many men and women are unemployed, make less money, and can't afford the luxuries they once had because they used money to control others.

"Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall," according to Proverbs 16:18,  An abusive man or woman is typically nonspiritual and doesn't care about wisdom or spiritual things.  But to the one who is in a situation where a man or woman equates his or her amount of wealth to a god status, just know it is only a matter of time that what goes up will come down.

God didn't put you with an abusive mate. Your flesh did.
