This is a meme that my wife Heather (www.actingbalanced.com) and I started. The rules of the meme are simple. You ask your partner the question of the week and write down their answers as close to word for word as possible. Then you get to add your version. Fun is had by all...
Next Week's Question is:
This week's He Said/ She Said question was:
Do you and your spouse budget plan? Is one of you the spender? The saver?
Heather takes care of the bills, bank accounts and other finances around the house. This is mostly because if I was in change we would always be fighting. If I were in charge, we would have a house full of pie charts and bar graphs outlining spending per person per category. It would probably not make for a pleasant household environment. Heather on the other hand is more ummmm... She is more willing to spend. She does most of the everyday spending and is the keeper of the day-to-day purse strings. She does not like me to look at the finances because I get 'carried away' with it according to her. She tells me, "my role is to make money and hers is to spend it." I guess this is cheaper than divorce.
If your SO doesn't blog, you are welcome to post both of your answers in the same post ... or just posting your side of the story is fine too... please link it up here:
