  • SO. I always have about $50-100 but he keeps the most of it, just because I agree that I am much more likely to spend it :)

  • It's all on me. I am more responsible with it. He has zero clue what the bills are and how much we have. I try to give a monthly report and he just stares off into a far away place. As long as the bills are current and he can buy whatever, he doesn't care. :) And I like knowing exactly what is happening. I am a control freak.

  • Him and it drives me crazy but he is the one working so I dont feel like I can demand taking control of it even though I think he makes very poor choices often with it.

  • We discuss the budget together, but I make sure everything gets implemented the way we agreed on. I do all the bills, etc. because I like everything done on time, he is a procrastinator.
