Original Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Female
Hi the problem basically is, my boyfriend and i want to get a place together. The only problem is im worried about money. He has a good full time job and i have just started university, so thinking about it i could pay towards the bills and food and things for the house but we obviously could not have joint mortgage (as im a student and only work part time) but how could i make things fair as i dont want him to pay for everything and if we split up be able to prove i payed for things?

Proportional payments

Well george is close this time but I have a better idea.
step one: find out how much he makes a month
step two: find out how much you make a month
step three: determine total cost of the bills
so lets say he makes $2,000 a month and you make $400 a month. And lets say the total cost of the bills are $1,000 a month. The ratio of 2,000:400 equals 5 so therefore the ratio you both pay for bills should equal the same thing. In this scenario it would be fair for him to pay $835 and for you to pay $165 because 835:165 is about 5 also.
Whatever happends you need to make him understand that even though you are not putting in as much as he is you are still putting in the same percentage as he is so it is fair. Don't let him take advantage of you or guilt you. This is the only way to do things in any household to make them equal.
