My husband and I don’t make the same amount of money.
We are pretty close when it comes to funds but I would say he makes 30 grand more than me per year.
So I feel that extra change should be factored in when it comes to the bills. I didn’t feel we should split the mortgage, groceries, gas, water and electricity 50/50. We had to hash it out quite a bit to get a system that works. We were happy for quite a while. Recently my husband was talking about major updates to the home. What happens when the HVAC goes? Do we split that down the middle? What about the roof? My husband is all worried about our current spray foam roof. They say it lasts 20 years. Our roof is 19 years old currently. It is in great shape. I don’t feel that in a year suddenly our roof is going to leak. My husband is worried that it will need to be fully updated and cost us several thousands. He is talking about a 50/50 split. I personally don’t care if we get a new roof. If it leaks, let’s get a spray foam roof repair. If he is too worried about it now, call for spray foam roof maintenance. I want to limp the roof as far as it can go. My husband is all eager to get it fixed up ASAP. No matter what, I am not splitting that cost right down the middle. He needs to shell out more for it.
