This past weekend I overheard a group of women discussing relationship issues, the duties and the responsibilities they expect from their partners and spouses. One of the women brought up finances and how the man is supposed to take care of ALL of the bills within the household.
Do you agree or disagree with her statement?
For me I would have to say no. I think the bills should be split 50/50 unless your spouse insists and wants to take on all of those responsibilities but it should never be expected. In my family, my dad takes care of the “bigger bills” such as rent, car payments, groceries, etc., and my mom pays the “smaller bills” such as cable, the phone bill and the light bill.
Do you think women should take care of the house responsibilities such as cooking, cleaning, taking care of the children etc. and the men should take care of all of the finances such as mortgage, rent, car payments, light bills, cable bills etc.?
Do you think women and men should split ALL bills and responsibilities 50/50?
