What kind of person would refuse to allow wife to work when about to file bankruptcy?
A saying comes to mind, Pride before a fall perhaps! Sometimes pride can be a terrible thing.
Someone with misplaced pride, I think.
A better question comes to mind: why would a wife put up with such nonsense?
Maybe it has something to do with being able to file (or not being able to if she were working) which is important that he do? Just guessing. Sometimes people get in over their heads and although I personally believe we should never do that; people do and they must get rid of all their debt to ever straighten themselves out.
My first instinct was to say, I think that it takes someone who doesn't live in this century. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that they are about to file bankruptcy. I wonder if it would make it more difficult to file.
I'm assuming that the reason the person you're referring to is refusing to allow his wife to file for bankruptcy is because their income would be too high and would either prevent them from filing for bankruptcy altogether or would require them to restructure their debt rather than just liquidating it.
While the perception might be that it's better to work and pay off your debt rather than filing for bankruptcy, it's important to remember that sometimes people end up with tremendous amounts of debt, that they feasibly cannot pay off in their lifetimes, because of something unexpected, like millions in uncovered medical bills.
Bankruptcy gives people a chance to start over. Sometimes the do over is needed because they made bad decisions. Sometimes the do over is needed because they had really bad luck.
I agree with that, I have filed and would never paid off the debit, as I was in the middle of a divorce and it was all falling on me, the bread winner at the time.
Sadly, that's quite common. I work for a divorce/bankruptcy attorney and a lot of divorces are followed by bankruptcy.
Maybe his beliefs that woman should not work comes into play, if that is how he fells and you should not be part of the financial solution. I realize this is outdates thinking but there are still many men in the bible belt who feel this way. Just a thought. I do not know your husband or how he feels about this, so just throwing this out as a possibility.
