If Rent/Morgage is 1200, should the man pay this or split it with the woman ?? What are yall thought???+5March 14, 2017 at 8:08 pm #7401
The man is the head of the household, leader, the head and not the tail, he should pay. Now… if he is not making enough money on his ends after he brings home his check, that’s when the women should step in to help out. Point** blank **PERIOD. A MAN SHOULD NEVER DISCUSS TO SPLIT THEIR BILLS WHEN IT COME TO KEEPING A ROOF OVER THE FAMILY HEAD !!+5March 14, 2017 at 8:55 pm #7402
Girl you are crazy!! Bye Felicia!!!
I would have to bless your man with these hands, cause he is a straight up sucka if he paying all of the bills. Head of house dont mean a damn thing in my crib we splitting it. I+5March 14, 2017 at 8:58 pm #7404Julie GelinParticipant
Agree but men need spending money too, so if it makes sense to split everything down the middle, shouldn’t be an issue there… If the man is making enough where he can cover the whole thing and still be able to live and support himself for his “wants” then ok he can handle it… just like women want their extra money to go shopping and buy their bundles and so fourth, men do too so make it a comfortable situation for the both of you

My friend wanted to know, is sharing rent with a man roommating?? I’m asking for a FRIEND DON’T SWALLOW ME DANG…+5March 14, 2017 at 10:00 pm #7413
@Word Smith, that is just my opinion. I did give the man some adjustments. Only if his check cannot pay the entire bill the woman should step in+5March 14, 2017 at 10:14 pm #7415
Now the woman know her role as a woman she has to help too. she should be entitled to the smaller bills: lights, cable, car insurance, and miscellaneous bills, like grocery. When you think about the bills she pays, it’s nearly as close to the man anyways
That’s How its always been since day 1. This generation always trying to change things around !+3March 15, 2017 at 5:49 pm #7429Julie GelinParticipant

I strongly agree that the man should cover the rent and his woman covers the utilities and making sure that there is plenty of food to eat!+2April 3, 2017 at 8:42 pm #8136
that’s way way it should be+1April 5, 2017 at 10:49 am #8185
I disagree. Just because you are the man and the perceived head of the household, doesn’t mean that you automatically should be responsible for paying most of the finance. Personally, I think that it is best to spit it 50/50 (if both parties make around the same). This is 2017. Most women make just as much if not more than most men. Back in the days many women were stay at home moms. Well that is no longer the case.+4April 5, 2017 at 10:50 am #8186
I think that some women make the mistake of always holding on to certain tradition instead of evolving. and that’s why over 55% of marriage end in divorce and in unmarried relationships, men cheat. Some tradition is okay to hold on to, but some tradition has expired.
If I say that I believe that a man should never cook, or the women should always watch the baby and clean the house, that would sound very ignorant. Also, I’m sorry, but the utilities bills don’t equal up to the entire rent. So, let me get this straight: I spend all my money on the rent, while you get to have extra spending money. To me it sounds like you aint looking for no man, you looking for a bitch ass nigga. #GotMeF!*#Up+5April 8, 2017 at 10:51 am #8294Wanderers PathParticipant
If you are sharing a residence, you should split the rent – if at all possible, both of you live there, and it is not to place added burden or stressors on the other person. Unless, someone says, ‘don’t worry about, I got this – most people may not have it like that.’ Anyway, this is a shared experience and that means the bills, too. But, each individual residence is run on its own set of rules, etc. To each his/her own.+3April 13, 2017 at 9:27 am #8545Lisa LorenParticipant
I dont think that a man should have to pay all of the rent just because hebis the man. It all depend on how ever Yall decide and however Yall work it out.+4April 27, 2017 at 9:06 am #9231
Mask, why you going in so hard?+4April 27, 2017 at 4:09 pm #9363
Im not going in that hard, Im just expressing my opinion. I think that a man is and should be the head of the household.
I see no problem with a man paying all of the rent, my problem is: I just hate how some women and society as a whole have this perception and stigma that a man’s value is based on his finances. Its like the more you make the more they value and respect you as a man. You could be a great man with an average job and some women wont value all of the intangibles that you are bringing to the table.+5April 27, 2017 at 4:13 pm #9366
Also, the reason why I think that It is best to go even with the rent, is because some women will accept you as the head of the household when your paying the rent, but if you were to loose your job, thats when they start treating you like 1/4 of a man.+5April 29, 2017 at 9:40 am #9394Lisa LorenParticipant
Also a man doesnt necessarily always have to be the head of the household in my opinion.+3May 2, 2017 at 9:02 am #9551
@Lisa I am calling your beautiful ass to the carpet!!!
What do you mean by a man don’t have to be the head of the household. A man should always be the head of the household.+1
