  • I'm a SAHM so he technically pays.
    What's the point of paying for your own meal? You're not on a date,you're married!

  • We do. We pay...all money made at both of our jobs is considered ours. I would think it was weird. ;)

  • OMFG separate checks? I'd be so humiliated I'd leave.

    My husband pays for date nights, even though occasionally I make more than him. On date nights he also opens doors and stuff. Love love

  • Yes, that is usually all we do on our anniversary. I am a SAHM so technically he pays but I am the one of with the checkbook lol :)

  • all our money is put together, so... separate checks would be pointless and i hardly see the point of going out to dinner to celebrate your togetherness if you are going to get separate checks.

  • This year we rented a room at Red Rock Resort. We stayed on the 17th floor, overlooking the whole Las Vegas valley. All of our money is together, so it doesn't matter how we paid for it.

  • We were married on 7-7-07 thinking he could remember this simple date. HA!!! Completely forgot and then blamed me for not writing it on the calendar. Uh, so, no, we didn't go out on our anniversary (and he continues to "pay"). But when we do go out, just depends on who has the most cash.

  • Yes, we go out. We pay with our joint debit card. If I had to go dutch on my anniversary I would rethink the selfish ass that I was married to.
