a little back story: Since the beginning L and I have split everything. Bills, Rent, Groceries and sometimes even when we go out. Lately though I've been feeling I'm putting in a little more than he does. I stop by the store to pick up milk, groceries or by Target to pick up little things needed for the house almost every week. I don't ask him for any $$$. I hate having to ask. I earn more so sometimes that's my "excuse" for him.
The latest issue have been car repairs. We only have one car and I drive it since I work the farthest. I drop him off and pick him up. When the car needed brakes a couple of week back, I took care of it. Didn't ask him for any money. Just last weekend the car yearly maintenance was due so he took it for service on Saturday morning. Come Saturday night he asked me if I was going to give him half of the total repairs. I was livid! I felt sad.
This happens everytime he does something for the house or we go to the store together. He will pay and then ask me for the money. I never do that. Anytime we go to the store and I pay I always just pay and forget about it. He sometimes gives me money for it. Sometimes he doesn't. Whenever I bring the $$$ thing up he tells me : what's going on. I was never like that. I'm becoming selfish. And we end up fighting but with no solution.
I'm sorry for the rambling but I need some insight as to how others handle the $$$ issues in their household. If you'd like to share. Thank you!
