:angry: not mekabel.

You don't have to follow through wiht the deal.
The way it works is husband has to give you anything you need (physically, emotionally, in private rooms of your home, etc.) if you give him all of your possessions.

You can keep your possessions, but then he isn't obligated to make sure all of your needs are met.

And its up to the wife to decide which way she wants... Because the entire gezeirah of him taking her earnings, but supporting her, was written as a way to make sure she is provided for

Correct. This is why I told Belle she doesn't have to follow through with it. I did not tell Belle's husband that he has a choice.

I have never heard that a wife's earnings belong to her husband. this is so backwards and wrong, that i too am not mekable. I would never expect this of my wife (when that happens)
