A man shared a story on how his wife always takes his salary from him every month claiming that it is to help him save and for necessities, only to squander it away at the casinos.
She will then force him to make more through side income like driving Grab.
Here is the story
“I bring home about 5,000 SGD every month after deducting CPF.
After paying off the necessities and bills, I would be left with about 2,500 SGD every month.
The problem is my wife will always say that she wants to keep the money for me to save and invest, and would not let me have any control.
She even asked me to take up a part time driving job with Grab to earn my own pocket money.
Every other weekend while I was driving, she would tell me that she is meeting up her friends and ask me to fetch her from Marina Square after driving at night.
This went on for almost 5 to 6 months, and I did not suspect anything till one day I saw a few receipts that dropped on the floor at home.
I picked it up and to my surprise, they are actually casino entry levy tickets in my wife’s IC number.
I decided to confront her and she admitted to me that she is actually addicted to gambling and have been frequently going to the casinos.
She always asked me to fetch her as she has lost all the money she brought out to play.
The total amount that she has lost to date was almost $30,000 and the bulk of it was from my salary that she is supposed to save for me.
How can she make me work like a cow while she squanders my money away?
I am at a loss now and I don’t know what should I do about this.”
