          actually, we have a joint account for household expenses.
          so every month we'll contribute a fixed amount into this account& use it to pay utilities, town council, phone, groceries etc and the excess will be kept as a form of savings for a rainy day

          other than it, personal stuff we'll pay our own

            I guess it depends on how much your the other half earns. My husband earns more than me, he'll pay for everything including my phone bills, but I pay for my own insurance. I've my own income and he gives me allowance too, thus don't see the need to have his atm card although he gives me the pin number.

              When I worked we used my income to pay for all expenses except home repayment and holidays, husband's income was used for home repayment, holidays and savings as we only have joint bank accounts. Now I don't work he pays for everything and I spend what I need as required.

                My hubby doing family business so his car,petrol,parking etc under company expenses.
                For my own shopping, he gave me 3 supp. cards to use.
                For groceries and misc expenses, we take turns to pick the tab.

                    This is what we do every month -

                    House loan (CPF: Hubby 70%, me 30%)
                    Car loan & petrol, etc (His company paid him $1K per month)
                    Electricity/water/phone bills (PUB bills - from the $400 allowance Hubby gave, Phone bill he pay)
                    Groceries - From the $400 allowance he gave
                    Insurance - Hubby
                    Dog food - alternate

                    My hubby give me $400 per month for home stuff, PUB, his dinners. So far still managed to save some money from my own pay and able to get stuff for myself.

                    We are planning to have kids, so maybe 50: 50 see how. Every month he is very broke. So see how things goes.

                        My hubby wants me to help pay as he claimed he had paid till the extend.. For years, I thought it was true (cos I always believe him). Recently just realised, he saved it instead. ai~ To think my partner lies to me for years & I then realised I'm the idiot in this house.

                        I mean saving it's not a bad thing but why lie?
