Dear Poll: Do You Know How Much Money Your Significant Other Makes?




Money has always been somewhat of a taboo subject, especially when it comes to talking about someone's salary, but I'm curious: Do you know how much your significant other makes?

Yup...but we keep our finances separate for now (we're married).

I usually ask kinda up front. I know what my bf makes because he hands me his check every week now that we live together. I knew before because we were always open about it.

We're married and I know how much he makes, but we keep our finances fairly seperate.

I make nothing and he makes everything! =) I see his wage slips and he tells me whenever he gets a wage increase. He's had three in the last year.

We both know what the other makes. He has a bad habit of spending money on unnecessary things so I every month I help him pay down is cc bill. I put him on a budget with his own money lol.

I shared with him since we just moved in together, so yes, we both know.

He knows what I make, I know what he makes. What we don't know is how much the other spends. :p

My bf tries to tell me but it doesn't really matter to me until we get married or something.

I've been married for almost 3 years now and I know what he makes and he knows what I make just by the bank account. :)

yep! i tell him what i make every time i get a raise at my one job. and he also knows how much i charge to plan parties for my own business. i know what he makes because he recently got a new job [about 4 months ago] and the pay was factored into his decision.

We live together, don't have combined finances, but we still know what each other makes. Not to the penny, but a good general idea.

I figured you usually talk about everything. Why should it really matter all that much, it's not like you're handing over your paycheck every time you get it, with $0 for you...right?....Right? (LoL...I hope I don't...maybe I shouldn't get married...hahah).

I know not because I discuss everything with him. We don't have combined accounts or anything, though. He knows what I make, I know what he makes. We know about each other's debt (student loans and what not). I think once you reach a certain stage it's weird not to know..

i have always known what my significant other made. i would think it VERY odd if that was a taboo subject. if you're sharing my bed you already have the most important part of me, why would i hide money? why would they?

We live together, have a combined account, but we're not married. Of course I know what he makes.
