  • I'm the only one working in my family, and I control the finances, by DH's choice. If I need money for personal things, then I use it. As long as the bills and other family obligations are met first.

  • nope, we both work, so if I want $$ for myself, I just use it

  • We both decide on the budget and we take what we want/need from the weekly spending money. You are a good saver!! He's lucky.

  • No, because I control all the money. He gives me his check on payday and I do with it what needs to be done (bills, groceries, clothes, whatever else we want or need)

  • No, I am the one that handles the finances. If I want to buy something I buy it, but I am not a big spender. If I want something more expensive (which I rarely do) I just talk to him first.

  • Uh no, i make money too he doesnt allow me to have money. HOWEVER we both do have a set amnt we can spend each week and that was BOTH of us coming to an agreement based on our budget.

  • We each get an allowance every week to use as we see fit. Mine usually goes to some surprise that I've been wanting to get him.

    Answer by Jademom07 at 3:58 PM on Jul. 6, 2010

  • No. I just take money out if I want to buy something. I'd feel weird getting an "allowance."

    But I'm glad it makes you happy. Different strokes as they say.

  • I'm not sure I understand. We have have joint accounts, so any money that goes into those accounts belongs to both of us equally.

    Answer by Erin814 at 3:59 PM on Jul. 6, 2010

  • Nope. Maybe if we had more money he would. :-D He doesn't even keep any for himself. We pay the bills, buy what we need, and if we want something extra we always check with the other one first (although he is more likely to go with whatever I say because I am the one that balances the check book and pays the bills - so I know what we have!)
