  • Would you rather be the one making all the $ or have DH/SO make all the money

  • Either way as long as the money was being made. In our house, it's split through out the year. I am a bartender & he is a chef at a catering company. During the off season (Mar-Oct) I am the main breadwinner. But then season rolls around & he will triple the money I make a month

  • DH is the breadwinner in our family and always has been. I am not good with money so work on a cash budget basis. I worked for a while, but never made enough to make it worth the effort/time away from the kids so we choose to live more simply and keep me at home.

  • I don't care who makes more as long as we are both contributing. I could never stay at home and not be working. I would rather we both make about the same. I have always made slightly more than him.

  • Actually I would rather it be C-- split the responsibility. Both hubs and I work full time and I like bringing in my own $, I like being able to put food on the table and being able to treat the kids to things once in a while.

  • I think it would be nice if it was split between us both, but right now he's the only one working. So he's the one bringing in all the money so I can stay home with our daughter. :) I love it that way for now and so does he.
