    It's last year's Bachelor Blake with his rumoured cabbage patch doll collection Why? Because I'm random and I think it's a crazy pic.

    If your partner was getting bonus each month (if business was doing that well) you would have no problems with him spending $5000 on just him..

    It depends on every couple arrangement. I have friends who keep separate accounts and only share the cost of running the household. Everything above that is kept in their own personal accounts.
    It's a valid decision as long as it's the choice of both partners.

    I believe we might need the whole picture to answer your question though.

    That's a lot of money, to my family anyway.

    I wouldn't be happy if my DH got that kind of a monthly bonus and just frittered it away on stuff for himself. It's all relative though - if he was earning HUGE money and completely covering all bills plus savings, then it might be different.

    I would also be really concerned if my DH was acquiring dodgy bonuses.

    That's a lot of money to hide from paying tax on. But honestly I'd stay out of this kinda stuff hey because honestly if it isn't your husband I don't really think it's any of your business what he spend or does with his finances.

    As long as I have free access to spare cash in the month ( and it wasn't spent on drugs, or other women) no I don't have an issue. If this was an ex and he wasn't paying correct child support then maybe

    For me it depends if both people are working. If you're a SAHM on a budget while he's living it up that's not cool. But if you both work and there's plenty of money I would have less of an issue with it. But by him hiding it, it's not exactly a sign of a healthy relationship....

    My DH gets quarterly bonus's it isn't a lot and normally goes in our savings account, or if DS needs new clothes i will do a massive online order.

    the last 2 have gone to our holiday fund.

    For me personally, i don't mind if he wants to spend some on himself, he works really hard, but he just doesn't, he will ask if i mind if he spends it on Sports equip and normally i don't unless he turns around the next week and moans we have no money .

    Do you know for sure that said person is getting these bonus's?
