This poll isn't so much about who brings in the money but more about who takes the responsibility to go out and pay the bills. How much is your significant other involved in the household finances? For me it is a shared responsibility. I pay the rent myself but almost everything else my gf takes care of. (This applies while I'm overseas working and while I'm back in the Philippines.) I'd be late on almost every bill if it weren't for her helping out and making sure things get paid. Before she came around I was 10 months or so overdue on my electricity bill....they never shut it off (or even threatened to turn it off) so it never even crossed my mind to pay it. The only reason I would go pay Globe monthly is because they would shut off my internet if I didn't pay. The rent is easy because the landlord simply won't let me forget about that.
