Solving Money Issues in Relationships

Brilliant or Baffling: Paying Your Partner to Do Household Chores

J.D. Roth of Get Rich Slowly says he has never argued with his wife about money throughout the 22 years of their relationship. One of their secrets is they've compromised on finances and reached agreements on trade-offs that they are both satisfied with.

For example, J.D. pays for meals because he loves to eat out more than his wife does, and in turn, she pays for the groceries. In another instance, since both hate doing laundry and since J.D. has a tendency of forgetting about his wet clothes in the washer for a few days, his wife came up with a solution: if she does his laundry, he has to fill her car up with gas and pay for it every time it needs refueling.

Do you think this bartering and financial rewards system is good for a relationship?

I would never do it, but eh, if it works for them.

I often don't call it bartering. Huh. My guy and I discuss who cares to do what more or less. Or who pays. I think the key issue is talking about $$$ issues to figure out who does what.
