in our communities,some people believe that when one gets a job the first salary has to go to the papa n moma is it true or a concoction? if not true what could be the people to share your first salary could it be you father n mothers home or you and your family(wife,children?

I live in the US. When I got my first job, I was 14 years old and my parents allowed me to keep it. When I turned 17 and got a job working in a store, my parents made me pay for my own car, gas, insurance for the car, and clothing myself. Half the time I couldn't afford a full tank of gas. I still lived with my parents then. When I married my husband the checks went into our shared account for our family household... bills, gas, and food.

If we were married and lived in our own home then the money would go to my husband and I. Unless we lived with his parents or my parents, then I feel that the money needs to be offered to help pay their household bills and for food since we would be living there and eating food together.

i love the way you are distributing it into two so it seems you would have shared that money to both of the families because my interest was as common that;when a man marries his beloved woman they mostly go and make a new family some where different from the mom n dad's family...i expect your parents have at least put enough in you so they are ever supposed to get first!! 4example what if God calls them and they have not shared any thing from there beloved daughter how do you feel????

My sons they first got their job they didn't give me their salaries because it was for them not for their parents. When I got my first salary I gave a blow out at the office. We don't practice giving our first salaries to our parents.

I got my first work after I was married for about 6 months before. I already live out from my parents' house. I forgot to add that I also gave my parents and the rest of the family a treat when I got my first salary. About my children, well, they sometimes give me money and in kind. My eldest son helped me so much when my second son was still studying it was my eldest son who gave monthly allowance for his brother. He also paid for my husband's, daughter's and my health insurance. My second son who is also working, sometimes give me money and bought some things for me and the rest of the family. Both are living miles away from us.

It really depends but if you're still living with your parents at the time you find a job then it's just normal to treat every one and give the bulk of your salary to your parents. It's different in my case, when I first got a job, I was not living with my parents so I ended up spending my salary to treat my friend who helped me find a job. But my first salary is very small, so even if I want to give something to my mother, she would have given it back to me since she's earning more.

Here in my country, it's really up to you whom you want to share your first salary. If you have your own family and children, your parents will understand you that you have now your first priority so they will never have hard feelings if you give not really much money to them. I think the best way is to share it with your parents and family or treat them out to celebrate for the job that brings you your first salary.

For my community, it is the same, I live in asia and my parents to expect that I give them roughly about 1/4 of my salary. However, in my family it does not happen straight away when I receive my first pay. My mom advised me to buy something memorable with my first pay so that I could keep it till I'm old. She told me to stabilize myself and get myself out of debts first before giving her apart from my salary. And now I have re-entered college to pursue my studies back. I work part-time now and give her a treat at a restaurant once in a while since I still can't afford to give her a part of my monthly pay. I belief that most asian communities do practice giving money to our parents after we have started working as a show of respect and appreciation to their goodwill of bringing us up.

This is a normal friend. especially if the person who took the first salary he lives with his family he will bring home. but if he himself has already sobstevno family will give her the woman and children. but if you live alone it will remain for him. the first salary payment always brings satisfaction and a desire for more such. nice day!
