Money is often a big issue in many marriages. We are not even married yet but are already having issues. We both like to help out. I dont want to be the girlfriend who makes him go broke. So I help out as often as possible. He is used to being the one who earns more so he likes to help out and isnt accustomed to taking help. Problem is I am the one who earns more and wants to help out.
So practical ideas please on how to make the money issue work. Such as who pays for nights out. Who pays for what bills. What is spent on gifts. I dont like receiving gifts so usually I ask for just time with him on holidays. How can I pay my way without making him feel less of a man. Things like that.
