Who makes the money in your household, and who pays the bills?

My hubby is the bread-winner of the household. I am a SAHM to my 9-week old son. I distribute the money amongst the bills, savings and what we can spend. Who brings home the money in your household, and who pays the bills? :)

  • My husband makes the majority of the money and I make sure everything gets paid. I also have my own little business from home, but that's mostly just to supplement so we have enough for gas, groceries, and any extras.

  • We make about the same, only because his unemployment is about equal to my GI BIll. I take care of the money.

  • I would say the same.. I worked full time for the school district before we had our first child and I haven't went back to work since then which was 3.5 years ago and we are now expecting our second. My husband is the bread winner and although we set up a budget seasonally I keep track of what bills are due when and how much.

  • That'd be my roommate, to both. He makes enough to live here on his own (if he never did anything fun), so it hasn't been too bad while I was unemployed. My first paycheck from my new job comes in 6 days, so then I'll be able to contribute too. :)

  • My husband makes the money but I take care of the bills as he has no patience dealing with people or answering machines.
