Yes, he does. I handle most of the shopping, using coupons, looking for sales ... But, he helps me with the budget.

Absolutely. We both know pretty much the same about our finances, what's spent where on what how much each month, etc.

I take care of it all. His "involvement" is spending more than he should.

I take care of it for the most part, but I keep SO up to date and make sure he always knows where we stand.

I handle all of it myself. My BF actually does more harm than good when it comes to budgeting money.

hubby really has no clue what our debts are sadly. But I think because it's easier for me to handle. He pretty much puts the paycheck in the bank.

DH doesn't want to know anything about our debt. It stresses him out, but he did thank me for spending hours last night going through every single bill/cc etc..and making our budget. And he seemed a little relieved. A plan of action makes everyone feel better. He will probably want to know more once we start actually paying off debt and he sees me getting excited. It will make him less stressed. Until then, Ill be managing it and he will just know the basics of the budget.
