Splitting cost with a chick/dude you live with?

My nephew has 2 kids and pays all the bills now with a chick that makes about 30k/yr. I told him if she lives there she should pay her way. I mean I know she is giving him and he is giving her so I don't think that should matter. Bills need to be paid especially since there is not commitment like marriage. I told him if she didn't agree to pay for some of the bills he should boot her because she wouldn't make a good wife anyway. Heck they haven't even done a budget yet.

I guess I am involved in all this because he wants to borrow 3 to 4k to buy a house which he needs to do at this age and income so I don't mind helping him. . I also told him to sell the stupid wedding ring he bought his ex wife for 13 freak'n K(because of the old 2 months salary bs for a shiny rock) only worth 4k now. Diamond are stupid and a terrible investment but i'll save that for another thread.

So anyway how do ya'll charge your gf/bf(if girl with the place) to make it fair if not married?

She doesn't buy groceries or anything?

I never once thought diamonds were an investment. They are overpriced and are artificially controlled.

Yea, same one. I don't know I pushed him to buy a house because he wouldn't get off his to do it. He did save some money buy the rolling popo took it from him on some old warrants like 3k. He works really hard and has done a good job bettering himself in the industrial field. So I thought I would help him get a house. My grandfather helped me and appreciated it. So I thought I would help him.

If he could and still can afford a 13K wedding/engagement ring he doesn't need any help from you or anyone else. That means he is brining home $6500 a month! And he still can't get his straight and needs to borrow money!

To be honest and blunt with you, if he's happy and doesn't have a problem with it, then it shouldn't bother you at all. I know someone married to a piece of and she doesn't care to change the situation so in turn I don't help with anything anymore. That's how you should feel as well. If he's not willing to fix the situation where it's not affecting him negatively don't lend out. We gotta learn to stay in our own lanes and I learned that by getting burned too many times.

that collateral should be worth at least twice what you are loaning him. How much interest are you charging him...this should help him in several ways... one it gets him in a house and two it teaches him a bit more of the cost of being stupid. Stupid should cost.

The wife and I are close to 50/50. Have been from day one. We never really have financial arguments.

Best thing for your son - make him earn his money and learn about relationships on his own. Told you so works real good. The best and most followed knowledge comes from bad experience.

If he can't handle money/life now - what gonna happen we he gets your estate?

As far as money, been married 28 years all accounts are held jointly no his or her money.

Agreed. But like I said he does work matter of fact he's making more money than I was at 30 with me having a accounting degree and him doing it through working for certz for pipe testing. College is stupid.

i cant believe that you've accepted the fact that they are having and not married yet... anyway... she should pay her half. unless they are considering themselves common law married, they they are just roommates. however if he wants to give away a room, then thats on him. not my money, not my problem. if he wants to save for a house, it easier if someone is giving him extra money

Shame on him for not waiting until marriage. He will likely get her pregnant soon. Hopefully, by then they will be married so that the child isn't a socialist living off of that government and in SIN!

Also, sounds like a . what kind of self-respecting woman would be so loose with her morals?! The lord does not approve such behavior. She should be shunned.

Don't really understand or get the 50/50 thing! So what happens if you make 100K a year and your wife makes 30K? Can't really split that 50/50 can you? What do you tell her? Hey your half of the 2K mortgage is due, or your $600 car payment is due! Maybe I'm just an old-school Roman Catholic that believes that once married, you throw your money in one big pot and bills and everything else gets paid out of that. To each his own though, so if it works for you then it works for you. I would like to add that this is my first and hopefully last marriage, I'm sure some of you 50/50 guys are on your second or maybe third.

married means that you put your money together and live off that. if you are not married but acting like it, should pay proportional. shouldnt be a freebie but then again, not my money, not my problem
