    I don’t see why one of them should foot the entire bill.  Who cares whose friend it is or who makes more money?  It’s a trip.  If you want to go, you pay your half.  End of story.

    He knows she doesn’t have the finances to go. If he really wants her to come, he’ll have to pay for her.

    They’ve been together for 2 years, so I feel they should split the travel costs.  It’s not like they just met and he’s asking her for a favor; they are a social unit at this point.

    However, it would be nice if he maybe sprung for a nice dinner out while they’re there or some other incidentals to help ease total cost for her, since this may not have been the vacation she would’ve chosen otherwise, and it’s not HER friend.

    Also, if I were here, I’d leave the gift up to him.  It’s his friend, so he should be buying the gift for sure.

    I think Chris should pay but Andrea should contribute as much as she can towards it. She wouldn’t be going if she wasn’t with Chris and therefore, he should help her out. However, if she earned more or the same as Chris I would expect her to pay an even amount to him.
