A housewife’s main occupation is caring for her family, managing household affairs, and doing housework. All these she does for the good of her family and at no cost at all. This isn’t a bad thing but it is also good for a woman to have her personal money. As they say, uncertainties are life’s necessity. Nobody knows what may happen tomorrow and the breadwinner (the husband) who must have insisted that his wife should not work may not be as financially buoyant as he used to be and he needs help to provide financially for the family.
