hi!! So, this is going to sound silly like i'm a fish out of water, yet how does everyone else handle joint finances in their households?? When there are two ppl working? I've always been the bill payer, except for now ofcourse. I always handled the bills with my ex husband. We just put our money together it was diff we were married had kids, etc. So, work starts soon and conversations regarding my contribution here are already being spoken of. I'm getting a little nervous to be honest. I am because I can see this as the next hurdle we must cross together. I get that for almost a year and a half now he has paid all the bills, which is great. Yet this new job is decent pay but not a fortune. Should I just offer to pay 50/50??? Probl is I cover food bills, it can be quite large ea week. He'd problem expect me to half all house bills and continue paying grocery bills. Any thoughts on how ppl do this?? ofcourse i'll have my own checking/savings account in time.
