A young woman has resorted to social media to argue that forcing a woman to split bills with her partner is unethical.
Many women do not realize that it constitutes financial abuse if a man pushes his partner to partake in paying the expenses equally when she earns less, according to @christianacici.
She went on to say that any man who does the above and it has a bad impact on his woman’s money while his own prospers doesn’t love his wife.

I think a lot of women don’t realise that they’re being financially abused when their partners consistently forces ‘50/50’ splits. Especially when you earn less than he does, and especially when you’re vulnerable eg pregnant. It’s absurd. Don’t let anyone convince you that’s fair
Any man who sets it up so his finances flourish whilst yours stay stagnant and you’re struggling in the name of ‘50/50’ hates you. You shouldn’t have little to no money left after paying joint bills that he does. EQUITY is the move. Proportional splits are fair.
