I need some advice. I am a FTM and I wanted to stay at home and take care of my child. I am getting married here soon and I wanted to know how it works when only one person is making money. I take care of our son, cook, and clean. I've never been in a position where I had to rely on someone for anything (well other than living with my parents). I've always had a job, walked to work, and had my own place. I am in the process of getting my license and we only have one car and my fianc?e works (it's only a 3-5 min drive from our home). So what I am asking is when it comes to finance or needing money during the day or wanting to go buy something for yourself, how does it work. Does your DH give you an allowance or do you guys share a joint account, or do you try to make money for yourself by babysitting or something? My SO has been upsetting me lately because I feel like when we get married (and now being a family) that we're supposed to share everything Nothing is just mine and nothing is just his. And he also has a car and he expects me to (even if I have my license) keep asking people for rides or wait until he has a day off to use the car until we can afford another car. What happens if I need to run to the store because we're out of diapers or milk or what if he forgot he had to work at a certain time and we have a doctor's appointment to go to? How did you and your DH work these things out?
