I'm curious to see how couples split their bills. If you share 50% of the expenses, are your incomes pretty much equal? Do you contribute a percentage of your money towards bills that are reflective of your income, if you make less? DH and I are having an argument right now. He's been at his job for a long time. I had a great job that I had to leave when I got custody of ds, so I had to start over, and there was a period where I wasn't working and then only part time (agreed upon between us). Now I'm full-time but he makes 3x as much as I do - he makes 74% of our combined take-home pay, yet I pay just about half of the bills. Then I pay for food, gas and necessities - most of his are paid for by his company. Since he travels a majority of the time for work, he says since he isn't here he shouldn't have to pay more than what he does.
