Taking money from a partner's pocket without permission

September 17, 2017 1:30am CST
I was arguing with a friend that taking money from a husband, wife or partner's pocket is not stealing because I believe anybody can grab money from anybody purse or pocket since we are one.But she of the opinion that it stealing unless the person permitted you. So what is your opinion do we term that stealing?

When you are married to someone you share your money with them. So that is not stealing.

After marriage we share our money.When a husband requires money,there is no harm in taking his wife's money ,but before taking should ask permission to his wife,same way wife should also ask her husband. Its not that without permission when you take money ,it is stealing.But the right way is that we should always ask and take with permission only..

I had been taught to always ask permission when taking something from somebody, in the case of husband and wife that is conjugal property under the law, still you need to ask permission because you are not the sole owner there are 2 of you as in business partnership to make the union succesful. Partners who are not married should separate what they own since its not conjugal although it also depends on personal agreements.they made.

Agreed but do we term that stealing or can you call your partner a thief because he or she took money without permission

@augusta123 when you start calling your partner a thief its just a matter of time before you separate, the relation is not a good and healthy one and setting a bad example if they have children

@SHOHANA yes because if you are partners u should be able to ask the guy for money instead of just taking it

@Christinb you get me right, as a result partners can respect each other.

I consider that stealing. Even though you are already married to a person there's always what you call respect of each other's property even though you are considered one. Permission is always a must and it's called respect.

@augusta123 If it is needed urgently and he is not around, I would take it and inform him as soon as I can , fully explaining the situation.

@augusta123 He's a phone call away, plus I don't think he'd leave cash at home. He always brings his wallet, the rest of the money are in his bank, and same with me. And in my case, I have my own money so I don't think I would need his.

I never get money from the pocket of my husband. I ask from him so he can give me. Even if he has money in his pockets, I will never get some without his permission. We may be husband and wives, but we should respect each other and so we have to ask permission if we are to get money or even something from amongst his things.

@augusta123 well, as long as when he arrives you tell him. He will understand. Besides, there's the cellphone to send him the message.

I agree with your friend. Even if my partner and I share everything, I've always been raised that you don't go into someone else's purse or wallet without permission. I suppose, depending on the relationship, if you said 'I'm taking some cash from your pocket' then that might be OK but if anyone, including my partner, took money or anything else from me without telling me, I'd wonder where it had gone.

I think you will still need permission. Just like deciding to marry. Both should agree

I think that if you both have mutual understanding about it then it's cool and should not be termed stealing though it's best to ask permission before taking money from your spouse . Then again I have seen cases where the other partner takes a huge sum of money and was labeled a thief.

This may not bad but it should hurts one's selfrespect. Having permission is good according to my view

@augusta123 call him, let him know anyhow or later, its will enrich her honor to the partner. We should be honest even with ourselves.
