I and my wife love each other. We know everything about ourselves. I know every amount that she makes from her business. She knows how much I make from all my sources of income.
Being the first born and first male, I have the responsibility of taking care of my parents and my 3 siblings who are still in school. My Parents are retired civil servants. Our second born is in her final year – medicine, followed by the third born in 200 level Law, while the last born just gained admission.
I spend about 35% of my monthly income on my parents & siblings every month. My wife appeared not to worry, but now the demand is increasing and it’s affecting the expenses in my home. For the second time on a roll, I denied my family (wife and son) their essentials just to cater for my parents and siblings and this almost led to an issue with my wife. Am foreseeing this occurrence repeating itself very soon.
Please advise me. How can I manage the two families?
