Who pays the bills?

Do you or hubby do the fiances? Who's job is it to make sure the power stays on?

I do it in my house. If hubby saw the checkbook he wouldn't know what to do with it. He just gives me reciepts or uses cash.

  • I take care of all the bills...well, almost- he pays the rent. I won't because we have to exchange american money for korean money to pay our rent, and I don't want to deal with that.

  • When he's here, he does, when he's deployed, I do. I'm always reminding him though.

  • I write the checks. He figures the taxes. I'd rather have my task than his.

  • I do- but only because I enjoy doing that kind of stuff. I'm sure my husband could handle it though, since I tell him what's going on all the time.
