As a matter of fact, I do happen to know an old lady with just basic education. She is unable toread Chinese and has never worked out. She was her husband's housewife and gave him three children.

He never gave her pocket money she could use s she saw fit; the only cash she saw w in the sums approximtely needed to do her grocery shopping.

She had no mobile phone a few years ago until one of her children bought one for her.  

I became aware of the acute and precarious situation of this woman when her husband was about to retire; he gets 3'000 yuan a month because he used to be a civil servant. But his wife stood to gain nothing and to depend on his charity which was unpredictable and liable to being cut at a whim. Luckily a solution was found with her family stumping up the sum necessary to buy her membership in the pension fund.

I am not sure this is such n isolated case.

Marriage/partnerships are a joint thing and there are roles my Wife just takes on board and does, and likewise things I just take control of and do
