No matter who makes more money, there's typically always a more financial responsible person in the relationship! 馃挵 Who is (or will be) in charge of paying the bills in your home?

You or your boo? 馃懟

    Split down the middle, but I'm also the one who has reminders on her phone about bills that need to be paid. I will then remind him about a bill.

    Right now, me - since the house is just in my name. Once we're married, we plan to share everything financial.

    We both do. Our funds are all in shared bank accounts. I will say I'm the one that makes sure they actually get paid though, he's very forgetful lol

    Me. We split things 50/50, but I'm the one who makes sure everything gets paid.

    He's not bad with money, but he's happy waiting until 11:59 PM to pay a bill due that day and I just can't get with that level of procrastination.

    We each pay bills. Unless we get a joint checking account (right now just joint savings) it'll probably stay split. I do pay the one bill that requires a check being written out and isn't just on autopay.

    I am more financially responsible. He is still learning that just because he wants it doesn't mean he needs to buy it or atleast find a good deal.

    Him, for sure. I am not math inclined at all, and he is very particular about finances, so he volunteered himself first. I am relieved and happy to let him fill that role.

    We each have our own bills, like credit cards and personal loans. He pays the mortgage and utilities. I buy the groceries. We split certain things as well.

    We split our bills depending on what it is. For example I don't pay his phone bill and he doesn't pay mine since ours has always been separate. But for our rent, the things we need for our kids etc we pay equally.

    In my marriage, I pay the bills, but my husband makes the money. Haha! We divvy up finances by having me take care of short term finances, aka paying the bills, and he takes care of long term financea, aka manages retirement funds and investments.

    We're going to have combined bank accounts so we will both pay them.

    We have and always will split 50/50. If one of us needs help we take care of it and NEVER keep tabs of the help.
