Not all are able to deal with money, he can spent all in just few days, and after, will be maybe 3 weeks until you will take a new salary again. Are you a spender?Do you let somebody from your family to keep money or you will keep money for house, for food, for what you need all month? How much you are good in a be a temperate person in spend money?

I learned early on my relationship that I would have to take of the money and bills. My husband used to spend a pay check in the gas station before he made it home. I save and plan ahead. He is thinking here and now.

I think most women are responsible with money. I grew up in a single parent household and I understood at a very early age the importance of money. My longest relationship so far is 4 years and I have always budgeted the money. I am not saying men do not know how to budget money but they are more likley to splurge and not save. I know women like to shop and impulisve buy but I just think women are better when it comes to shopping.

Hello icesmile, I usually am the one who manages the money. My b/f used to spend on whatever he was wanting at the time. I have always been pretty good at managing the finances. What I try to do is save up extra for necessary bills such as car insurance and extra for about 6 monts of rent. I put the extra in a different saving account so I don't even touch it until I need it.For buying food I try to buy in bulk except for products that have a close experation date like milk. I also have an emergency fund for emergencies for just in case something unexpected happens. I learned this from my mother, she was the one who also managed the house hold finances.

i am unmarried . so i manage alone. if i am married , then i would give equal rights for my wife. For the successful prosperity of a family, i think both husband and wife must participate in money management.

Generally I manage my money in my home, because I am the only one who is earning in my house so I have to manage all these things with money and other stuffs. I make my financial plan for the whole month, then accordingly I distribute the money.

When I got my salary I give it to my mom so she is the one who do the budgeting. I am not spender to be honest, as I am thinking of the bills first before myself. I can only buy for myself is one ballpen and ice cream LOL. Yes this is true, of course for every hardwork you did for a week or two, I deserve a reward for myself, so a new ballpen, or chocolate or ice cream is enough for me. On the other hand, my mother is an excellent budgeter.

I think I am not a spender. In my home, it is the father who manages all the money. He is a spender and thus wants to keep the control on all the money he has earned. I think I take good care of the money I have.

My parents had a lot of financial troubles when I was a kid, so I learned early on to clip coupons, buy things on sale, and save up what you can. So far, it's turned out pretty well for me--despite working only part time, I've managed to pay several thousand dollars off on my college loans. My partner is a little more into spending--he's into video games and computers, so he gets tempted by shiny new equipment. He's pretty good with managing his paycheck, though. We each manage our own paychecks, splitting the rent and paying for groceries. Whatever we each have left over after bills might be discussed, but so long as the bills are paid, I don't really mind what he spends his money on. My mom tells me that she'll never have to worry about us going into debt--I hope she's right!

My husband and I are recently married have worked together very well. We have relocated a lot because he is in the army so i am unemployed right now. He makes the money and I manage it and pay all the bills etc. It works out great he may have the stress of working and providing for both of us right now but he knows carefree that the money hes making is handled properly and he is never behind on any payments or anything and he can just sit back and not worry whether something was paid or not.
