She also adds that he was reluctant to think that she would ever get back to work and have a job of her own that would allow her to put their kid in daycare during working hours.

But Marta says that she did just that and marked the first day of her decision with her viral TikTok clip, while adding that she has been imploring him for months just to do the "bare minimum" in being a devoted father and husband.

She writes in a text overlay of the post: "My husband didn't believe I'd put our newborn in daycare and start working. I've been begging for the bare minimum for MONTHS. He has time for his friends but not his wife- here's to my first day at work & secret bank account"

According to The Jimenez Law Firm, the number one reason couples ultimately break up is due to infidelity, and the second biggest cause are monetary disputes.

The legal group also goes on to state that "nearly 2/3 marriages start in debt," and costly wedding celebrations may have something to do with that.

Judging from the comment replies to Marta's TikTok, there are other women who have been in similar positions as well: "That’s what I did last June when my husband threatened to leave me, a then SAHM, penniless. I have 12k saved so far," one person wrote.

Someone else said that if their marriage is headed towards splitsville, then she may want to consider placing her money in a Federal Credit Union instead of a traditional bank.

"Make sure it’s a credit union. If he request a financial audit credit unions can’t turn over those paperwork without a federal indictment," the TikToker wrote.
