I have a question regarding the financial obligations of the man within a marriage and household.
I currently work a full time job. Despite having this job, I usually can’t fully cover all of the expenses we have in the house. Because I can’t cover for all the expenses with the current job that I have, I ask my wife to contribute anywhere from 100 up to 400 dollars so that everything can be covered.
I have suggested picking up a second fulltime job but since I have an obligation to spend time with my family my wife tells me it could have negative effects on the family and that I perhaps shouldn’t do it.
In our situation where I do work full time but I fail to make ends fully meet,
1) Is it haram for me to ask my wife to contribute until I find a more stable job?
