Nuts and Bolts: Money

One of the things I (we) have been wondering is how do some of the basic things work.

Money: How do you deal with money issues?

Does all the money go into one big pot?
Are there ‘set asides’
Does the money all go like: From each according to their ability to each according to their needs. – – – This may work well in family, bad in government.

Now my experiance is limited . . . to sister wives (seems like a fairly functional family), what I have read here and the first episode of Big Love (HBO may not watch it all and seems somewhat dysfunctional). I see that Big Love tries to deal with it, however it is still fiction.

So let us take the example of three wives:
W1 = An average job, she makes about $10 an hour ($400 a week) — soon to be $310 a week with healthcare rules.
W2 = The homemaker one, she does homeschooling of all the kids keeps the house running, she does all the ‘child care’ while others are at work
W3 = the professional she earns $70K+ a year
H = 40K a year in something

Is there jealousy, or what. I mean in one W3 needs more money — she buys lunches and needs professional clothes. Wereas W1 can wear jeans. How do you figure this out? Without it coming down to everyone gets $500 because it is fair.

Two mothers are better than none?

So I would imagine being children in a polygamous family is like having more than one mother.

Typically in monogamous families the mother sends the children to public school to baby sit them for the day while she does whatever (possibly go to work or stay at home and not watch the children.)

If a Public School teacher get’s paid $30,000 a year to teach 30 children that is $1,000 tax dollars per child, not counting books, but just to pay the baby sitter. If she/he get’s paid $50,000 a year to teach 20 children that is $2,500 tax dollars per child per year. All this money does not come from the parents, but taxpayers! And it is actually more expensive because teachers get benefits like health insurance. Now none of this money is going to educate the children, this money is only going to pay someone to educate the children, textbooks, computer labs, curriculum etc. all cost extra money!

Now if you go and home school your children the books should cost less than $1,000 per year even if you are using college level textbooks. This generally does not drain from taxpayers, unless the homeschoolers go to public college courses, etc.

Furthermore homeschooling saves the government money because the mother does not get paid in excess of $30,000 per year but generally teaches for free.

So monogamous people, have the baby sitter (school teacher) cost other people tax money so the mom can ignore her children for 7 hours a day!

In addition to this the mother does not ignore her children enough between the stress of children and work she hires a baby sitter so she can ignore her children more and spend time with her husband at expensive restaurants paying other people to cook, when he/she could cook himself/herself.

Now if there was a polygamous family. Both wives could find more time with their husband! And both children could have more time with a mother(s)!

The mom’s would not have to hire a babysitter but they could take turns watching the children, will the other wife/wives spen…
