SEID, Gonzalo  and  GOMEZ ROJAS, Gabriela. Money and Power in Argentinean Couples’ Relationships: Evidence from a Gender and Social Class Perspective. Rev. interdiscip. estud. género Col. Méx. [online]. 2021, vol.7, e698.  Epub June 25, 2021. ISSN 2395-9185.

The objective of this article is to present results of an exploratory study on heterosexual couples’ money management in Argentina (2010-2015). We analyzed quantitative information for the Argentinean sample from the 2012 International Social Survey Program (ISSP). We also examined responses to a specific question about money management included in 60 qualitative interviews with women and men from different social classes. We found similar trends to those reported in other countries: the whole wage system is associated with more traditional gender values, whereas shared or independently managed accounts are both linked to more egalitarian gender values. We conclude that variations exist in couples’ specific arrangements and in their effects on gender and class inequalities within each type of money management.
