So, I just had a question to get a general sense of what's the correct way to go about this:
DH and I, and his two sisters, would like to go in together on a gift for their parents. We determined the gift and are now attempting to divide up how much each should pay. Sister #1 divided up the price counting my DH and I as 2 (thus, with a $120 gift, we would pay $60). My DH and I believe that, as we have one income, we should be counted as one (which is what has always happened). We're willing to put in an extra $10 or so, but feel that it would be unfair to contribute $60.
Thoughts? Is it more common to have a couple counted as two in things like this or as one? I just want to make sure we're not expecting something unrealistic here.
