Spending Money in the Family
How do people in your country spend money when they live together in a family or in a partnership? I know, you can't speak for every household, by still there might be a common pattern that the majority of couples prefer.

Do each of them have his/her own account and go halves in all spendings? Or do they have only one account and decide together each time they want to buy something or go travelling? Or does one of a couple earn most of the money and the other one spend it for needs of all family members?

Hello Aud, your generation simply describes mine as well. As there is saying sharing is caring. Sharing should be 2 ways and in everything good or bad, happiness or sadness to have happy family.

Generally man/ husband will be responsible for main household expenditure like house, car, loan , personal insurance, foods , children education and etc. Woman or wife will contribute the share if husband cannot afford them all.

Actually it depends on the family and their families members. Nowadays each and every member have account . Because they are lot of facilities . Some family have only one account .
Now a days concept was changed . Each of the members want to earn , because they have lost of demand .
If each of the members to earned money they can right to spend .
But some family are dependent on the head of the family . He / she decided that how to spend the money .

In a relationship, we shall not use fairness to measure. This can lead to no open end discussion if there is argument in a family.

Hello Amira.
This is good that you help each other in your family. I prefer to pay for myself too, when I am with a man, because I like when everything is fair.
