Being married to a senior enlisted soldier in the Army makes me, the nurse, the highest wage earner in the family...not my husband. I did not marry him for the money, obviously.
He did not marry me for the money either because I don't play that game. Been married twelve years and he has never once asked me for money. Money is to be enjoyed and used to pay for necessities, for survival, and a little fun when the "funds" allow.
It should not be used as an excuse, Ton, to be married to a man. This is how it is here in America! Thank you for sharing your Netherlands viewpoint with us. It helps to bridge the "culture shock" between the two countries, ey???
