My Fiancé and I will be living together after we get married. We both currently are living with our parents. I had an apartment before but transferred to a university closer to home so it made more sense for me to live at home. We were planning to live together before we got engaged but once we were engaged we decided to wait until after the wedding to save money.
y fiancé used to visit me for long periods of time at my apartment so we have a small taste of living together, but I was curious to see how other couples divide up finances once they are married. Most of the married couples in my family are traditional and the man works and the women stay home, so there’s not really any shared finance responsibilities. Both fiancé and I will be working and equally providing but I want to know how other share finances with each other.
o you both equally spilt all bills and responsibilities or do you each have set of bills you decide to pay?
Fiancé and I have discussed this before and we usually just say we’d split it across the board.
I’m sorry if this is a dumb or silly question. I’m going to be new to married life and it was just running through my head on how other married couples work it around. I know managing your own finances is way different once they are conjoined to your partner.
