That tough, I would definitely help him to track every thing that he spends, cash or credit to see where it’s going.  That a lot of money to just have ‘missing’ and unaccounted for.  If you can save 1500 a month, why is he only automatically tranfering 500.  Why not 1500 or even 1000 since you say he pays for when you guys go out. We use credit cards for everything (and pay it off every month) so that it’s easy to download and categorize to track.  I know people swear by cash only, but that to me is harder to keep track of since receipts and all are a hassle to me.  For us, we both make the same and are huge savers.

Does he have other expenses that are more than yours?  Maybe gas to get to work for example, bank fees, etc.?
