What’s your money arrangement — what’s mine is mine or what’s mine is ours?
For me, it had always been what's mine is his, and what's his is mine. This would seem like a perfect arrangement to some but in the long run, arguements like who contributed the most or who bought what will somehow caused a strain in the relationship sooner or later. If given the chance, if God permits, in my next marriage, I wouldn't "share" our monies but instead have a separate account + another joint account for savings where we both contribute an equal amount of money.Read more
As I am not working, his money is my money. My pocket money is my money. Some big items in the household I need to get permission from him first before buying, including children's enrichment classes. I am kinda missing those days where I have my own income and spend on the things I like. I guess this is the trade-off of becoming a full time mother. But I never regret of taking care of my kids full time at home.Read more
i am working from home and make a decent amount, but the arrangement is such that what i make is essentially for me and the kids. my hubby earns way more than i do and this was a conscious choice, as i was to be the primary caregiver while he would work from outside the house. so he takes care of the major expenses, but i pay for all and everything that is related to me, including air fare and such.Read more
we dont have a mine and yours concept, and we both contribute to the household as well as keep spending on each other by choice. we do keep aside some money each month for our own expenses, and there is also some that goes into the family saving pool from both of us.Read more
What's mine is mine. What's his is his. But there's also a shared portion where we bought contribute to for household and family stuff (vacations included!). haha.. and when we go on dates, usually it's his wallet that will be coming out when the bill comes. ;pRead more
