Me and my SO live together and have a baby together, but are not married. We split bills straight down the middle from rent to the heat bill and everything in between. our biggest issue is money...we fight constantly over it because he makes atleast $1000 more a month than I do and I am struggling while he is out buying video games! What would you do? How would you feel??Answer Question

Well, who's idea is it to split everything? Either way, you kinda screwed yourself. Either you agreed to splitting or you allow it. I would suggest you either find a way to make more money so you can spoil yourself, find a new compromise, or find a new partner.

It sounds like you both decided to handle things like you were roommates and that is what you are doing. You would not expect a roommate to pay more because you made less. If this is what you agreed to then let it be. If you are wanting more of a partnership were everything is shared talk to him about it and tell him how you feel without getting upset. I would look at the big picture though, you are not married and if he decided to leave you would get less assistance than what you are getting now.
