Does she work ? Or is she purely interested in spending what YOU earn ? If she works and earns, she should contribute towards the expenses of the home and children, too. Its not fair for someone to insist on picking out the bits of traditional culture that suit them, and ignoring the rest. OK< at times it was seen as purely the man's task to provide for his family --- but in those times the woman didn't work or earn anything herself. What does she spend her earnings on ? IS she an earning mother who spends everything on herself and neglects her children's needs ?
Could any members of your family or hers help her to be more realistic about money matters and family responsibilities ?
Could you persuade her ( during a calm time ) to join you in marriage counselling, to work out some of the differences ? Good luck with your business plans --- as it sounds as though she would interfere without being helpful, you may feel you don't have to tell her. As you say, as she seems invested in grumbling and focussing toommuch on your koneys, she'll be unhappy either way. Is she likely to find out about it fairly easily ? If so, you may as well tell her yourself. If its unlikely, maybe at least wait until you know whether it is succeeding or not, before deciding to tell her
