Need to give angbao to Spouse meh?

I don’t understand why there is a need to give spouse(usually wife) angbao during CNY… there is even a “行情” (market rate) of how much you should be giving your spouse angbao, which is $288 to $688.

What the…

I never expect my partner to give me any ang bao… I thought we are an item already? We gave out angbao to his cousin’s nieces and nephews and also my nieces. (We haven’t had ours yet.)

We gave angbao to both our parents too. It never occurred to me that he should give me or I should give him angbao… it’s like left pocket put in right pocket then right give it back to left…

I don’t understand why some ladies whined or even complained to me that their partner (sometime not even husband, just boyfriend) didn’t give them angbao or give too little to them (which is lesser than $200)… need to be so calculative meh?

I understand if a SAHM get angbao from her hubby… a bit like PB for the whole year hard work… but if both are working adults or bf giving to gf , I really don’t see the point…

What do you all think? I’m just bit surprised and yet irritated when more and more ppl talking about this…

I started distanced myself away from those ladies as I felt that we are not on the same frequency…

Netizens’ comments

  • Such a little thing then you distance yourself. Don’t think you will have many friends left. Lol Different ppl have diff opinions and thinking. Don’t expect ppl to think like you and they are not wrong even though they may have diff opinions(in this case). Why do ppl buy bday presents or give bday treats between partners or even friends? It’s just an exchange of blessing. For joy and happiness! You think this is calculative? I think you are the one being calculative leh. Don’t be so narrow minded lah aiyo, new year liao. Kan kai abit!
  • Lol.. this is new. Spouse give hongbao??!! Then I must be damn lucky, because I self service myself every other day from his ATM wallet!! Better than him giving me one time hongbao
  • No need to make a big fuss over this. After all, the angbao is supposed to be a blessing that you want to give to your spouse. Whether the monetary value is big or small depends on both of your views just like any other anniversary or birthday gifts. After all, it is the sincerity that counts. I gave my husband angbao ever since we are married. I also gave my brother(married) angbao yearly since he started his own business. After all, I wanted to give my sincere blessings to them. How others view the intention of the angbao are their business… What is yours?
  • I think its more of exchanging a blessing just like how we give angpow to our parents during cny as a blessing. Doesnt matter the value inside, but it’s the thought that counts. But it’s really up to individual. If never practice is no wrong also. Everyone is diff!
