On Facebook, netizen Kevz Ching said he doesn’t think twice in entrusting his entire month’s salary to his wife, Bhey Nerviol Viduya.
For the entire six years he had been working, Kevz shared that it’s been his wife who carries his ATM Card. The reason is pretty simple; he believes “women budget better than men.”
Kevz said there are others who think he is ‘under the saya’ or is scared of his wife.
He defended himself by saying, “Hindi ‘eh. Nakikita ko kasi kung paano magbudget ang asawa ko para matustusan ang pang-araw-araw namin hanggang sa susunod na sahod ko.”
Indeed, the husband is all praises for his wife’s budgeting skills.
Kevz said, “Kung iisipin mo lang iyong pagbubudget parang madali lang kasi eh. ‘Di ka lang gagastos, makakapag-ipon ka na. Pero in reality, hindi ganun kadali ang ginagawa nila. Sa sobrang dami ng bayarin at nagmamahal na presyo, sobrang hirap ang pagbubudget.”
Kevz admitted he once felt a bit deprived knowing nothing of his salary goes to him. But his regret turned into happiness knowing he’s able to provide for his family.
He wrote, “Minsan ko na din naisip na trabaho ako nang trabaho pero parang walang napupunta sa akin. Pero hindi pala sa akin yun. Sa AMIN ‘yun, masaya ako dahil nagagawa ko iyong part ko na maging provider para sa mga needs namin at minsan yung wants namin. Hehe.”
Kevz advised other men to find a life partner who knows how to handle money well.
He added, “Kahit gaano kaliit o kalaki ang kinikita ninyo, kung hindi naman marunong magbudget iyong partner mo, wala din iyan.”
In the end, Kevz said just knowing his family is well cared for is worth all the hardwork.
