  • Expenses

    Hi my name is M and I am new to this forum.

    I would like to get some feedback on an age-old dilemma. My GF feels that I don't pay enough expenses. We are both divorced with kids. I do make more than she does and I moved in with her in her house along with her 2 college kids (I have 2 teenagers of my own). She feels that along with helping out with paying the utilities, I should also help her with her CC expenses. I refuse to help with her CC expenses as they have nothing to do with me and I don't use CCs at all. I provide 30% of my monthly salary towards the household expenses. Am I being cheap or am I being fair or am I being overly generous? Thanks in advance for your constructive feedback

    Re: Expenses

    It's difficult to say. Does 30% of her income cover the rest of household expenses? That would seem to be 'fair' to me. Sit down, go over budgets and bills and come to a plan you can both feel comfortable with.
