My boyfriend and I put all our money in one account. I do the budgeting and we have both agreed to pay all of our bills and household expenses, put aside a certain amount to savings(for a house) and then whatever is left we split 50/50. He buys what he wants with his money, I buy what I want with my money. As far as who pays for going out to dinner, I made a rule that we have to both take the other out on a date at least once a month :) He loved that idea, kinda keeps things fresh. As far as birthday gifts, I buy for my family and friends, he buys for his.

That sounds fair and fairly simple. What about when you have say 15 close family members/friends and he has only 5?

What about medical/dental bills?

Just throwing more stuff out there to get an idea. We have a meeting about this tonight and I'm kinda nervous.

I realize, through my own feelings and through what I've read recently, that the issue is not really MONEY, as much as it is POWER and CONTROL -- especially with the disparity in incomes.

I appreciate the responses and would love to hear more.
