    Sometimes I pay, sometimes he pays.

    Fiance always pays. He makes about four times what I make. I have tried to pay but he never lets me. Even if I grab the bill and use my debit card, he’ll slip the money in my wallet or glove box when I’m not looking. This is for everything-whether its just the two of us or both our kids too.

    We have shared finances so “we” pay for everything. However, when we were just dating, he usually paid for most things, although I would contribute (like if we went to amovie, he would buy the tickets and I would get popcorn, something like that).

    We both do. It just depends who’s quicker at getting the debit card out! Haha, hey – it all comes from the same place!

    When we were dating, he paid for everything and would be upset when I tried to pay for anything.  There were a few times when I would sneak my debit card to the waiter when he went to the bathroom but he would get upset when he found out then he would always hide the money in my car or apartment to pay me back.  Now, we have a joint account so we pay for it.  Although, we still always use his cash or debit card even though it is mine also.

    I pay once out of every 3 times or so.

    All of the money is “our” money so “we” both pay for everything.  Before we were married, he paid 75-80% of the time and I paid the other 20-25% of the time.

    We do mostly.  I’ll pay though sometimes.  He’ll pay if it’s for a really special occasion, which is fine, because I have more of a flexible income.

    When we go out to eat he usually pays. I usually pay for delivery food.

    When we’re out in a group and are all splitting the bill I usually pay my share because it’s easier then to direct the waiter to put differing amounts on each credit card.

    We do. We have combined finances so we budget our money together at the beginning of the month and spend what we allocate for dates on dates 🙂

    I say we do b/c when I invite him out to something, I insist on paying. He makes WAY more than I do but he really appreciates it when I treat him to a date night or whatever.

    He always pays, because he has a much higer salary than I do (and none of the stupid student loans i have!). I sometimes pay when its a special occassion or its something I know he wouldn’t buy for himself, but then I just have to skip buying groceries or something else later on anyway 🙂

    Our finances are still separate. He pays for dates – mostly because he makes more money than me. A few years ago when we were making about the same we split everything 50/50.
