Need help from Moms who don't combine their income with their DH,SO etc..
My SO and I (not married) have one joint account , both my paycheck and his goes into the same account. We always combine our money and every week like clockwork we fight about money. He spends his money and stupid shit that is no necessary. We live paycheck to paycheck and the second we get payed he is already looking at things to spend it with. It pisses me off. We are 2 months behind on our electricity bill and he doesn't seem to even care. I have been paying just 100 every 2 weeks because I don't want to get our service shut off. Anyways he told me he spent like 300 dollars on something useless. He was trying to help his cousin get insurance and he ended paying all of it for him. I was pissed ! He knows we still owe over 300 in the electric bill and we have 2 car payments every 2 weeks. I'm just tired of fighting and I need help. How do you do it with your SO if you don't combine your money? Who pays what ? Or do you split everything 50/50? How is it working for you?
