Both hubby and me are working. Hubby will pass me 2/3 of his pay every month and that includes grocery, milk powder, diaper, bills & kid's sch fees. Almost Bao ga Liao except for his own expenditure. We dun really calculate who paid more or lesser. It's all about give and take.

Depend how much you or are hubby is earning, i will say if hubby is earning more, of course he pay for most of it (the necessaries one, as i will spend on the kids without going through too much with him like what the toys, books to get. And groceries and baby essential items like diapers, fm (if needed) etc. ) it'll be like 70% him, 30% me. Guys don't really know how to save, hence girls have to safe for emergency and kids futures use for enrichment or anything else needed.

we will combined all our income and pay all household bills. we will share the bundle with each other.

we have a joint account whereby we contribute part of our monthly salary to it. and we will use it to pay for our expenses.

Money issues are the biggest source of conflict in relationships. We have decide to create a joint account to combine both incomes. Contributed percentage is based on salary /ability.I no force my wife to contribute more as I understand she also need take care of my mother in law& father in law. We understand each other and it is best way to pay the household bills.
