  • We always shop together.. We have fun somehow. Except the fact that was can't buy many things we want. But then we each get something we like and we're happy! Like oh, coleslaw is on sale! Yay, Cabbage fighting Cancer! Oh yay! I get some Carmel apples! Or oh Colby cheese is on sale! Or cat food! If we get something we like we're happy.. But my SIL's parents don't shop together!

  • That's down right bizarre!
    I do all the grocery shopping and pretty much cook meals that cater to my picky hubby.

  • When we were together I did all the grocery shopping. But the majority of his stuff was bought at Sams club because he is a truck driver and it made more sense. He would also do his own shopping but it was for the road and didn't bother me.

  • We usually shop together but that's not always possible so either my husband or I will shop.  It depends on whose schedule it fits into.

  • that is odd..
    but i know someone who 1/2 everything & have seperate banking accounts.. -- Every month they tally up the bills (mortgage, water, electricity, GROCERIES, and so on) and the guy writes a check to the wife & she pays the bills..
    Seriously.. Roommates with benefits! Very odd! But they both have their own kids (teens-adult) and have been through bad divorces.. So i guess they are both just protecting themself.. (sadly) they are keeping a divorce pretty simple.. She walks away with hers. He walks away with his & 1/2 the home.. or buy the other one out..

  • Nope. He won't step foot in a grocery store. Guess that's one of my duties. I hate seeing cute couples shopping together all laughing & finding ingredients together. Woud LOVE for DH to come along with me & goof off at the grocery store.
