I was thinking about this last night because 80% of the time if we are driving anywhere together then I will drive and 95% of that time it will be in my car. My car is slightly bigger and more economical, so it makes more sense. I do most of the driving because it is my car but he will drive if I ask him to.
So what’s it like in your relationship?

I drive, he doesn’t and I have a car, he doesn’t. I wouldn’t want to share either. Once I lived with a girl and she referred to my car as “ours,” I nearly punched her in the face. I don’t enjoy sharing things that only I pay for.

He drives most of the time, because my car is crappy and his is nice. I don’t like how his drives, and I’ve only been driving for a year, so I’m not very comfortable driving in it.

We take my car usually but we split the driving 50:50 usually.

He does all of the driving. I have my lisence, but I hate driving.

We only have one car, he uses it most of the time since he has to commute to work. He also drives most of the time. I do drive on occasion, mostly when I’m alone but sometimes when I need to drop him off or pick him up.

We only have one car, it’s my car, and ever since he got added to the insurance he never lets me drive, haha.

@FromA2B2013: My name is on the car. I made the down payment and signed all of the documents. He makes the monthly payments most of the time so it’s our car. He has it most of the time though.
I was in a car accident and that killed my desire to drive. I drive when necessary. I can probably count on one hand the amount of times I’ve driven him since the accident 2 years ago.

I’m currently learning, with a test soon. So obviously SO drives us everywhere in his car. He’s already said he wants to be princpal driver when we go somewhere because he doesn’t like being driven much, and we’ve agreed we’ll take his driving experience over my inexperience any day. I will drive myself to work and get a second hand car and when necessary I will pick him up and drive him. Also, on long drives on holiday etc we’ll share the driving (once I’ve had more experience post-test).

@FromA2B2013: We only have one car and it’s mine, but when we go out together he drives. Only because he is the WORLD’S MOST ANNOYING BACKSEAT DRIVER EVER. It’s so bad – always telling me what gear I should be in, what lane, where to turn, where to park, etc. It reminds me of when my dad was teaching me how to drive and that was a terrible experience, because my dad is the exact same way, lol.
So I make FH drive everywhere. I will seriously only drive with him in the car if he’s in a coma or something.

We share a car. We split driving day-to-day. However, I get car sick on long rides so I usually take over.

@FromA2B2013: His car is in better shape than mine so he does most of the driving. Of course I always drive if he’s been drinking (I don’t drink).

He drives because I only have my learners permit and he has a ‘new driver’ license. We take his car because he likes it more than mine and he nearly ran mine into the ground the last time he borrowed it for an extended period of time.

Most of the time we take DH’s car. It’s a 4 door and a lot more spacious than my little coupe. He also does most of the driving where we live now. I’m a nervous driver. we live in New England now, and between the unpredictable drivers out here, my unfamiliarity with the area, and the extra traffic, I don’t do very well.

We both have cars, but he does most of the driving and we take my car. His is a stick and uses premium, and mine is an auto and a hatchback. I can’t drive a stick, so if we take mine and he can’t drive, I can; if we’re on a long trip/city driving, it’s easier for him to drive an auto; the hatch is nice if we need to haul anything (laundry, shopping, etc.).
