Post complex model angularjs to web api

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

Let’s say I have this models

public class HouseHolds
    public string Code { get; set; } 
    public List<HouseHoldBeneficiaries> HouseHoldBeneficiaries { get; set; }

public class HouseHoldBeneficiaries
    public Guid HouseHoldId { get; set; }
    public Guid BeneficiaryId { get; set; }
    public int HouseHoldRelationShipId { get; set; }

I want to post new HouseHold to database so I send the result from angularjs
but I Can’t bind List HouseHoldBeneficiaries.


Code: "wer"
HouseHoldRelationShipId: 2
BeneficiaryId: EAFC7940-5FAD-4C04-BC01-6D052BA5E711

But my HouseHoldBeneficiaries is always null in the model ??
