I'm curious. For brothers who are of average means, and whose wives
don't work, is there a standard amount of money given to the wife? Whats
the average? I suppose most people will want to reply to this

as salaamu alaykum,

Most of the wives that I know just use a credit card the hubby pays for.  I don't think they have like a particular amount given to them each month.

I think I'd feel very uncomfortable asking my husband for cash.  I don't even like asking my father for money :-/


wasalaamu alaykum.
