If you are or have been on a period of unpaid parental leave (to stay home and look after one or more babies) while your partner works, how have you managed your finances as a couple? E.g. who pays the rent/mortgage, for food/living expenses etc.? How do you divvy these up, if at all?
My mat. leave payments have ceased now and I'm not earning any income, but do help out my hubby with his business when I can (this is a condition of me not going to my own job i.e. staying at home with the baby).
I think it's reasonable for him to pay for [almost] everything (e.g. he doesn't want to pay for 'luxury' items like my hair appointments once every 2 months) but he still wants me to contribute a bit of the rent, which will now come out of my savings.
Just keen to know how others work it out! Thanks ☺
