    Loved the super wealthy article so much, and then the one on how couples split money. My most recent partner, we did 50/50 and put equal amounts into the account,and earned similarly, though I’d say he spent less than me, though I’m not at all a rash or excessive spender or shopper. But the house was furnished and decorated by me, and that was made so clear when we split! I’m not sure how that’d work if I had protracted time off work with childbirth or health issues, but I own my own property, and that could be sold should I need cash as I own more than half its conservative current value.

      I’m sorry to hear that you split! That said, splitting money is such a tricky issue if it is done at all….

    We do 50/50 even if only one person is working too. I would be curious for a post on how you manage that now. We know what both people’s full financial pictures look like though (required for a postnuptial agreement) and do overall annual financial planning even though we are keeping things separate.

      What do you mean exactly? I’d love to do a post!

      We still do 50/50… I pay half and he pays half 🙂 I just list what I bought and he does the same, and we reconcile at the end of the month to see who owes who.

        Oh! It sounds like your partner is more detail oriented than mine – that would not work for us at all. His method of budgeting has always been to…not budget and that everything has worked out fine lol. He is not good at producing receipts so we’ve had to work out systems around that!

          I usually make a note in my To Do app each time I spend something (or stuff the receipt in my pocket to log it at the end of the day).

          We are both pretty detail oriented, but I really track it down to the penny and he just takes out $500 in cash each month and once it’s gone, it’s gone.
