It may sound weird but yes I've seen my wife stealing money from my wallet and cupboard several times. Very smartly she would take out a Rs 500 note or Rs 1000 note, so that I don't get to know easily but this has happened repeatedly. If she needed anything, she could have asked me, don't know why she needs to hide it from me and steal money.

I am confused what should I do. Is confronting her best option or should I catch her red handed and then ask her the reason. Pls advice. I can't see my marriage going for a toss because of this.

Yo. Which world are you in? Taking money out of her husband's purse is a woman's birthright. Don't you know this? Be happy it is just Rs.500/- . If you force her to ask you, she might ask for Rs.5 k. will you be able to afford?

U haven't said if u give her monthly money for all the household expenses. If u don't u need to chill, but if u do, and still she steals, then u can confront her. I bel in such things it's best if u talk things out straight instead of letting the person feel OK about the crime..

Is your marriage love or arranged one ? If its love then its ok to ask casually cos you both must be much more free with each other. But if its arranged please take extra care that you don't hurt your wife by any harsh words. They too have their own needs and it doesn't feel good asking you all the time for money.

First of all she is your wife, so what is wrong if she takes money out of your wallet. Secondly she may be feeling embarrassed to ask for money, why don't you sit and talk to her and if she does need more money just explain her with love that she can take money but just let you know so that you don’t think that you lost money elsewhere. Until and unless her need is genuine and she is not misusing the money there is nothing wrong in it.

If i were you i would have put fake notes in my purse just for fun :-P. There might be 3 reasons 1) either she is a cleptomaniac 2) or you are not giving her money If neither of those two is true: 3) then my friend she is stealing obviously for something that she cant give you an account for. Not that you should ask your wife on what she is spending but this might be a case where she cant meet you eye to eye and reply

You moron, do not worry about it. Does she have to ask you all the time? It means that you want her to beg of you everytime she needs something. Give her an equal status. Let her take. Its better she take your money and not your maid.

On second thought, why do you have to keep all the money with you? Give it to her and you steal back from her and feel the satisfaction it will bring to your ego.

Well, Treat ur wife as equal n b gentle to her, give her money every month for her expenses so that she need not steal from u. She needs money for her expenses and dont ask her details of expenses. Every human being needs money for expenses..dont control money or ur wife..plz give it to her monthly..she will b happy and she will b grateful...Pls treat her as equal to u..not as servant..

Are you not giving her some money for her pocket expenses? Generally an educated lady or who has been financially free before marriage may not enjoy asking her husband for money. Since how long you have been married? Since when this is heppening? Do you have any kids? What was her life style before marriage? Was she addicted to spend money just for nothing? Better give her pocket money every month so she need not ask you or steal. Do not ask her what she is doing with that money.
