Found this quote interesting!

On top of the emotional strain, many military spouses, particularly wives, don't have the experience of managing the family's budget.

I wonder if this is a cultural thing. In my experience (I'm British).. in the UK it's nearly always the woman of the house who does the household budgeting and money management! And this was certainly the case in the mid 20th century, as I learned when I studied history.
