Me and my hubby agreed to contribute the same % of our salaries to a joint account and all household expenses like groceries, baby stuff, childcare, gynae, Internet bills etc comes from the account. He earns more so he contributes more to the account. But we both agreed on this cos our contributions are based on our earning capabilities. I think as financially independent working women, I WANT to contribute to my family expenses. Also, I dont't want money to become the topic when we quarrel say 20yrs later.. Haha..I know guys who pays for everything, gives their wives supplementary credit cards for their personal shopping...they feel proud that their love ones are spending their money but my hubby is not this kind. He is meticulous with his finances, doesn't spend on luxury items and will invest wisely for the future. I dont't think he should be paying for everything (or anything in particular) cos ultimately whatever he saves now will eventually to go our future and kids.
