In India, homemakers may end up getting a monthly salary from their husbands

20 Sep

The Indian government is mulling over a proposal to force husbands to hand over a percentage to their wives.  (HT: TC)

Feminists in the West have been dreaming of this for years; funny that a non-Western, Third-World country is thinking of implementing such an insane policy.

I hope they’re not so stupid as to proceed with this hare-brained scheme, but if they do, at least then we can have data to demonstrate why it’s a bad idea for us here in the West, when its disastrous impact on India, both economically and socially, becomes apparent.

From the article:

The minister said if a portion of a husband’s income is allocated as wife’s share, it is likely to be spent on better food for children, on their  education and the overall quality of standard of living of that  household.

Right, because men are always financially irresponsible, and women always financially responsible, never spending money frivolously on themselves or spoiling their children, ever…

    Hey, in a Cuntry where a jilted bride can scream rape for being lied to? This does not surprise me at all. Hey, I have an idea; Let’s just assign men randomly to women to be their slaves! You had sex with her once? She owns you now, buddy! You went on an unchaperoned date? Here’s your harness! Let’s round up all the able-bodied males in a community to clean the womens’ houses one day a week…

    Here’s how it will probably work in India. Husband doesn’t give his wife anything. Wife goes to official government ministry to complain. Government bureaucrat goes to investigate. Husband pays bureaucrat a bribe to shut him up.

    @ PM: “Yeah! Why *not* start paying alimony the moment the registry is signed? You know it makes sense!” 🙂

    @ Eric: Shhh! Don’t give ’em ideas! 😉

    @ Carnivore: Ha! Gotta love ‘baksheesh’, eh? 🙂

    Oh, BS? How do you figure?

    Feminists here in the West have been arguing for years, that housewives should get paid for their work, even though they’d prefer they leave the home and go out and work… Anything that results in a transfer of wealth and/or power away from men, into women’s hands, they support…
