I’m a 26-year-old woman and I got married last year. My husband and I have a fouryear-

old daughter. The problem is that he doesn’t take care of us financially. Is it because I have

a job?

Sis Naledi responds:

The child needs to be taken care of by both parents. Even if you are working, her

father should take care of her as well. He has the responsibility of taking care of his family as a married man and shouldn’t have to be asked to do his duties. Let him know that you expect him to take responsibility of his family and do not allow that situation to go on much longer as he will assume that his behaviour is acceptable.
