- Who Should Pay The Bills In A Relationship?
- Should A Woman Pay Half The Rent?
For men out there, I do think it’s good for men to build up a foundation where they have that kind of flexibility.
But I do understand that everybody’s not in that position and some people will not be in that position and depending on the type of lifestyle you’re trying to live with that individual.
It may require two incomes. So again this is a conversation you have to have with that person and you guys have to be on the same page about it.
I think at the end of the day, it’s not about two people equally paying for bills, it’s about two people equally contributing to a relationship.
And contributing does not mean I pay 50% you pay 50%. It might mean I handle certain tasks and I may handle certain finances, and you may handle the other tasks that need to be done in our relationship.
We create balance. To me, what’s more, important than the focus of equality in the relationship is the focus of balance in the relationship.
When you can find that balance you can create more harmony and that’s going to work for both parties involved.
Everyone has to sit down and talk to each other and just get on the same page about how do we go about finances and things being done.
And be honest about what you’re willing to do and what you’re willing to accept in that relationship.
Should A Woman Pay Half The Rent?
For me, I’m not asking for the woman to pay half the rent. Personally, my vision is to create a lifestyle where whoever I’m with doesn’t have the pressure of paying half the rent, half the bills.
I want her to find the career, her purpose that really speaks to her heart. I don’t want her to be at some job and she stressed about it. She doesn’t even like it.
That just completely isn’t who she is, because that’s going to affect the relationship.
That’s going to throw things off the balance of energy in our interaction with each other and in her quality of life. I don’t want that for my partner.
So in that instance, I’m prepared to take on the burden of paying all the rent, all that kind of stuff. I’m cool with that. It’s not a problem for me.
I pay 50% you pay 50%. It means I handle certain tasks and I may handle certain finances, and you may handle the other tasks that need to be done in our relationship.
This totally depends on you and your woman. If you can afford to pay full rent, you should pay the rent. And if you are having a problem paying full rent then you can discuss this with your woman or with your girlfriend.
