PrincessPixie 9 years I would NEVER discuss how i spent my money with my partner. and stuff buying expensive things together - you dont want to have to share when you sp;lit up. my advice: never live together for more than 9months at a stretch so they cant claim defacto relationship and always pick a partner who is too screwed up in the head to EVER want to keep anything if you split up. "no, i dont want that Georgian tallboy, it reminds me of you...' "well i guess i'lljust keep in then shall i......?" lol! Pinkperfectpixie 9 years I never did EP...oh wait, I wonder if that is why I got divorced...oh noooo, silly me, it was becaue he was banging his Japenese Tutor...Duhhhhhh~ caligirl1201 9 years My money is my money and I spend how much I want. ethiopian_princess 9 years um, people check with spouses when they buy stuff? that sucks. Shiloh-Jolie-Pitt 9 years anyhing over $500 we usually consult with each other. More out of mutual respect than because of control issues. BlackBarbie21 9 years lol. maybe just a little. i am the baby girl though. yayita 9 years BB are we a little spoiled by the parents huh??? BlackBarbie21 9 years That's a good idea Kacie. I have a man, but I live with my parents still, and I don't work so I spend their money, and I spend that as I please :-) sexyeyes 9 years I agree with Yayita 100%. Kaciegrrl 9 years We have a shared account for joint expenses and each have a separate personal account - I can spend whatever I want - it works great for us! :) Twinkle1 9 years I'm a full time mom but am still on paid maternity leave so fortunately I do have my own money. I spend it how I like but I don't go wild or anything. And we do discuss the major purchases. atoxicsparkle 9 years i, too, spend my money my way, and i have lived with my bf for 3 years now. we each have our own bank accounts, saving, checking, credit cards, etc. as long as we each have enough for our portion of the monthly bills, then there is no problem buying what we want. now, if one of us spent so much that the other one had to pay all the bills in their entirty (sp?) then we would have a problem. but we both have good money-managing skills and haven't had a problem yet. pinkangelmonkey 9 years i spend my money however i feel, however bigger investments i always let my bf feel as though he has a say in the matter. im very frugal though so he is lucky... yayita 9 years Do you live together? if so there must be joint expenses you guys have to figure out together. Although if it's a personal expense and it's your cash than yes, you do whatever you want. JK-Boogie 9 years I am not single but I make my own money and spend it how I like... yayita 9 years This is a tough one, I live with my BF but we really haven't come upon a high end product we must talk about before purchasing. He has his money and I have mine so we buy whatever we want. However, I assume that if something costs between $300 0r $500 we would have to talk about it.
