Recently spoke this to my bf about this. And i realised both of us have different way of managing finance. Thus, feel like hearing on other couples how do they manage finance together. Maybe i can pick some useful tips. First of all, we both earn roughly the same salary range. Except i am slightly few hundreds more. My question on before married is referring to dating, wedding, honeymoon and renovation. How do you guys split those costs? Do your bf pay most of the bulk or do you guys split equally like 50% 50%? As for after married, how do you guys settle on household expenses, saving for retirement and probably kids? Also household chores do you guys split the tasks too? It will be great if you can explain in stages so that i can understand more.
