How often should the man pay when a couple goes out on a date?

This isn't a personal question...we share the money my husband makes, so it's not an issue. But what do you think about couples who don't share their money?

  • The man should always pay, and couples who don't share their money are not bonded enough to become one!

  • This is such a weird concept to me....and no offense to those who do it. But I feel like once your married, you join your lives together and that includes money. All resources should be going towards your common goal, which is living and loving together. I don't get the "he pays" "she pays" after your married. It all comes out of the same pot of dinero!!!

  • My BF pays always. We will share the pool of money after marriage though.

  • I think whoever makes the plans or extends the invite. I don't feel it is fair to expect men to always foot the bill. Especially if both are working...

  • to be honest i believe the Guy. but i didnt practice what i preached lol. My husband paid like twice then he ran out of money lol.

  • the guy should pay! My husband feels the same way - later he told me he wouldn't have dated me if I didn't let him pay and open doors for me. :-)
