A Filipino Family’s Traditional Money Management Roles
Traditionally, the husband works for the family’s upkeep while the wife takes care of the entire household. In the ideal setup, the husband earns enough money for the family’s needs. His income is dutifully handed over in full to the wife, who in turn handles the family budget. She makes sure that the family is fed and clothed, the mortgage is paid, along with all the monthly utility bills. Moreover, she makes sure that her husband has clean clothes when he goes to work and that he gets enough spending money.
But those times have changed and inflation has hit us hard for many decades. If we want to be able to provide for our family, like a safe home, good food, private education for the kids, and vacations, we need to earn more. So more often than not, wives work in order to bring in their share of the family expenses.
Despite being a career woman, the mom is still expected to fulfill her duties as a wife, mother, homemaker, and household manager. She is usually the one tasked to pay for the utility bills, school dues, as well her husband’s credit cards. Perhaps, it is also because a woman can multi-task better.
However, the family responsibilities, along with errands, as well as limited time in the bank, can sometimes result in overdue payments. Thankfully, most big companies now, including banks and utilities, have gone online. All we needed was an online payment hub where we can pay all our bills simply—anytime and anywhere.
