Was married? Didn't you get married again?






Quoting LiesLiesLies:

No...I have my own money.







But when I was married I had a debit card and spent whatever I wanted. He texted ME before he spent anything lol!

No, we've been married 23 years.  We have a joint account, and his check is automatically deposited.  I pay the bills, we both know what we can spend, both have access to the money (and the online account).

He gives me a portion of his check to buy household items and gas. I guess that's an allowance, but I have a job soo....

Nope. Opposite actually. He's military, I work from home. His entire paycheck goes to bills...mine goes to debt and play money. So he asks me if he needs more than what I give and I typically give him 400-500 for whatever.

We both work and each have or own accounts. I pay the house payment and my car payment. He pays all the other bills.

Sort of. I am a SAHM and he has his own checking account. Long story why I'm not on it too. But anyway... he has most of the credit cards and the bank card. I have the credit card with the lowest limit ($400) and if I need more, I ask him for it. Sometimes I get annoyed with it but I know it really is better this way because he is totally responsible with money and I am the exact opposite. lol

yeah i was thinking more along these lines. I mean we dont have money to just spend on whatever. but each paycheck we get so much for gas and food. We dont buy a ton of extras though and when we need something we work it into our cash money for those 2 weeks. I wouldn't call it an allowance though.

we both get an allowance...also known as following a budget.
