I'm working and our pay is around the same. I dont take allowance from hubby as he has more liabilities (pay for car installment n maintenance and household bills etc) and I give allowance to my own parents and pay my own bills. Helped him pay road tax etc as well. Baby stuff we just take turn to pay.. Also never fuss who pay more or less.. Like that time taka baby fair we bought stroller etc spend close to 1k but I paid cos I have taka card. Dining out also sometimes he pay sometimes I pay... I pay for all my own shopping and traveling.
