Does your So give you money? DO you ask ?
In my situation , he gives me money when he knows something is coming up for me or just so i can have to have. Fyi I dont ask . I can NOT ask for money from him , never did & hopefully never will. I don’t think its a bad thing per say if a girl asks for money from her SO but in my case i just cant. ( probably a pride thing ehh )
How bout you bees ?

we always give each other money – whether its $5 for swimming entry or a few thousand, we have money going back and forth depending on whats needed or happening or the last time one of us went to the ATM. i have money squirrelled away all over the place so its easier for him to ask me than go to an atm

No, if I need something, I buy it. If it is a big purchase, I will consult with him about it, and vice versa.
Occasionally I will ask if he has any cash so I don’t have to go to the ATM, but other than that, never.

we share accounts so it’s not really an issue.

I’m a stay at home mom, so his income is our income. I guess that wouldn’t be asking for money, since its my money too. But I hate hate hate hate asking for money still, unless its for groceries or gas or diapers. But my Fiance is pretty good at keeping my account topped up lol. Or he’ll say hey, why don’t you go to the mall I put $ in your account, that way I don’t feel guilty for asking.

No, but he’s offered before. At this point it doesn’t matter much, since we’ll be merging finances soon.

We are both working professionals well able to afford what we want, so no need.

@chesseplease: I’m glad he can see how much is in my account when he signs into his online banking because I feel like I’m 15 again asking my dad to drive me to the mall when I want to do something and don’t have any cash!

Fiance and I both have pretty crap jobs at the moment, so we lend where needed. I’m looking for a new job, and he’s going back to school, so things should be looking up, though!

He is currently unemployed and a stay-at-home-dad so he can’t give me money but even if he could I wouldn’t ask and he never gave me any before. I always had a job and made my own money. He sometimes asks me for money though. lol

we share everything- money is very fluid with us, so really its pretty equal

Well now we share accounts so there is no his or mine… although i guess sometimes if one or the other of us has cash and the other one needs it we hand it over? Before that we made pretty much the same amount so there was really never any need.

Not really. He’ll usually buy me something if he sees something I think I will like and vice versa. Although we are merging finances after marriage, I still have a “thing” about asking for/borrowing money.

Right now I have to ask him & he has to give it to me bc I am not working and have no income coming in. But when I was working I was free to spend my money how I wanted without asking him. Even for big purchases I would tell him what I was looking for and make him research for me. He’s a big tech freak. And I would just book vacations and tell him when to take time off from work and vise versa with me.
jeez..i really miss not having a job so I can spend money…momma needs shoes and bags and cloths and new sheets and new towels.
