OK so my SO and I do not share Money. We have an account for bills we both put money into and then we have our personal accounts. He travels for work, jobs have been close enough to home that they have been coming home every night. Well this week its farther away so he will be gone from this morning until about Saturday. Every week we both put in 40 for groceries, so we spend 80 on groceries a week. Is it fair for me to still ask for grocery money on weeks he isn't going to be home? I feel bad for taking it, but on the other hand I get paid every two weeks. I budget my money so the bills I need to pay get paid and set aside $80 for the two weeks in groceries. I also budget enough money to get me through with gas and any extras I get throughout the two weeks. Anything extra I pay extra on my truck payment. So with that said with it being last minute when he finds out when and where he's working which is always Mondays and he leaves or starts the job on Tuesday. I do not budget to cover groceries by myself so when he leaves in a day notice it would really screw me to just cover it and not worry about it. Do you think its fair to have him still pay for half the groceries?
