Indonesian province's new rule to prevent cheating puts male civil servants' pay into their spouses' pockets

By Wahyudi Soeriaatmadja, Indonesia Correspondent JAKARTA - An Indonesian province has come up with what it hopes is one way of preventing its male civil servants from cheating on their wives - by putting their pay into their spouses' pockets. Under a new rule that takes effect next month, married officials in Gorontalo will have their monthly salaries paid into their wives' bank accounts. Newly elected governor Rusli Habibie believes this will stop the men from spending money on other women - as some wives have alleged - and also cut down arguments over household finances. The new rule, administration spokesman Rudi Irawan told local media, came after many civil servants' wives complained about not getting enough of an allowance from their husbands.
