This may be part of something bigger than you realize!

Is that bonus-- part of her salary? That could be a good or bad thing.

I don't think you understand what a bonus is

Bonuses can be locked in as part of your salary contract. Some people have a guaranteed bonus of x percent per year. Usually, however, that's reserved for high skilled or government employees.

If an employee's contract with the employer lists a specific amount that the employee will receive as a bonus, the bonus will be considered part of the employee's wages

#31 is right about bonuses being expected or even guaranteed in some jobs, but it's not just limited to government. I know someone in finance; in his job, annual bonus is performance-based but an expected part of compensation, and can be ~1-3x salary.

That's why 31 said "high skilled or government." Your friend would fall under the "high skilled" category.

They gave you a diamond?! All they did was hit me with a rock. Then, they picked it up and took it with them, so I wouldn't think it was a gift.

I remember watching charlie brown as a kid.

Hey, at least you got something! It's the thought that counts.. Right?

Oh OP you should be happy and proud that your wife is so hard working and has the potential to do great things. You're married.. So in one way her money is also yours. I'm sure she'll share it with you. I hope you like your back pack.

Being married means your money is hers and her money is hers. That is how marriage works lol.
