Household Bills

There isn’t one right answer in terms of how monthly household bills should be split between a couple living together. The key thing is for the two of them to be on the same page with clear expectations establish. Thus, I’m simply giving my opinion on how I feel things should be divided below.

Our Yearly Salary Is About The Same

  • I consider marriage to be a partnership and not a sponsorship. Therefore, if we both got good jobs and make about the same yearly my expectations is for my partner and I to split all household bills 50/50 each month.

I Make Significantly More Than My Partner

  • A key motto of mines in life is to treat others like I want to be treated. Therefore, I can’t have my partner splitting the household bills with me 50/50 if I make way more than her, since I wouldn’t want her to do that to me. Furthermore, I want to make sure my partner still has money after bills are paid to purchase nice things. As a result, I got no issue in having an 80/20 split on bills for that to be the case.

Do you agree or disagree on how I feel monthly household expenses should be divided between a couple and why?

What We Allow

When it comes to relationships people do what we allow, accept, and tolerate from them. As a result, it’s important to have consequences to actions, so they have an incentive to do the right thing. Furthermore, if a person isn’t willing to do right then you should consider helping them to appreciate your absence.

Cheating Partner

  • If you have a partner that has cheated on you multiple times there is a good chance that person doesn’t respect you. However, the root cause of that disrespect may arise from the individual not being afraid of you leaving them. Thus, you got to stop giving unlimited loyalty to them when they consistently give you limited loyalty in return.

Money Tree To Friends/Family

  • A person shouldn’t need to borrow money from you on a consistent basis, unless they are living out of their budget or don’t have one. In either case, their bad planning should not be your emergency. Therefore, you want to say NO to them sometime, even if you do have the extra money to give so you don’t handicap and make them think it’s alright to not be responsible and just do whatever they want with their money knowing you will always be there to bail them out.

What is something that you allow or allowed from another individual in the past that you wished you never did?

Disrespectful

I try and see things from more than one perspective always, along with being objective. As a result, I’m addressing men being disrespectful to their woman this week in this two part series.

Never Willing To Compromise

  • Some guys refuse to ever compromise, even though any successful relationship will evolve it happening sometime by both partners. Therefore, if it’s something that your lady ask you to do, be willing to put her first and oblige sometime.

Treating Your Lady Like Your Maid

  • Just because you got a lady that doesn’t mind and take pride in doing most of the household chores, you shouldn’t take advantage of her kindness by treating her like your personal maid. For instance, instead of being lazy and leaving your dirty clothes right next to the hamper, go ahead and put your clothes in it and not leave it as a task for her to do.

What are some other situations you can recall or heard about, that a man was disrespectful to his lady?

Respect

If you want respect in life, you got to be willing to give that same amount of respect to another individual. Some women struggle with this concept as much as men. Therefore, I’ll provided some examples below of women belittling their man and plan to address men doing the same to their woman next week.

Talking To A Grown Man Like He’s Your Child

  • Just like you don’t talk to an adult like you would a baby, you shouldn’t talk to a grown man like he’s your child and emasculate him, especially in front of his friends and family, even if he’s easy going and never stands up for himself. Furthermore, you should look at your man as your equal and not as you being his superior.

Reminding Him On Regular That You Make Way More Money

  • Any self respecting and hard working man is not going to let you disrespect him on a regular, if ever for that matter, by constantly demeaning him just because you might make significantly more money than he does. Also, the only man that a woman might keep around for a while with that type of attitude is a lazy man with no self respect.

What are some other situations you can recall or heard about, which a lady belittle her man?

Proper Context

Be careful in taking relationship advice from an expert always, especially when he/she doesn’t know specific details about your situation. This is important for them to know so they can provide guidance in the proper context. Thus, listed below are two examples of the importance of this.

“If a man cheats, he doesn’t really care about you”

  • I want to first say I don’t condone a person cheating in a relationship ever. Yet, just because a person cheated doesn’t always mean they don’t care about you. It does mean that they’re human and made a mistake though. However, if the person has cheated multiple times, it’s a high probability they don’t care, since the same mistake shouldn’t be made over and over.

“Leave him if he refuses to stop going to the strip club”

  • It’s important to have key beliefs and values in life and not be willing to make exceptions to certain things. However, if your man going to the strip club isn’t a deal breaker, but just something you don’t like and he makes you feel like a queen and special most of the time you’re around or talking to him, I wouldn’t advise a woman to leave solely because of that.

What are some other examples of things related to relationship advice that you feel it’s important to have proper context on?
