I’m 37 years old. For 37 years I’ve never had a joint account with anyone. I have always paid what I’m responsible for and FI does the same. We’ve been on the same auto insurance policy for a year. Since I pay mine each month and it’s an automated process, his payment got lumped with mine. So I pay our auto insurance each month. After the 6 months, I told him that I paid his car insurance and he knew I was, and that that money he owed me from that could go toward X.
I’m in the same predicament now. And while I feel bad telling him he owes me money for his car insurance, a part of me also feels that I shouldn’t feel bad. It’s not my car, it’s not in my name, therefore, I don’t feel as if I should feel this way. He owns the house we live in, my name is not on the mortgage, therefore, I do not pay money toward his mortgage. Instead I pay all utilities, etc.
We are planning on opening a joint account for home repairs and emergencies, etc. I’m fine with that.
So, (lol) I have a balance of $300 left for the uplighting for our reception. His car insurance for 6 months is aright around there. Should I perhaps ask him to put it toward the uplighting?
