When KJ and I decided to move in together, we made a deal: One of us pays ¾ rent, the other pays ¼. The same person that pays ¾ rent also pays utilities and 1/2 groceries, while the person who pays ¼ the rent, cooks, cleans, does laundry and pays the other 1/2 of the groceries.
Here are the questions I pose to you: Who has the better deal? Or is it even? And does it matter? Should there be a deal like this in place at all when moving in together?
What’s the deal between you and your significant other?
(keep in mind, due to financial reasons, all costs cannot be split down the middle 50/50)
