Alice86 Posted June 19, 2017 Share Posted June 19, 2017 So my partner and I have been together 2 years. We have a 6 month old. We don't share money. Everything is 50/50. Although I've paid for most of the baby things as my partner has to pay for a child from a previous relationships school fees. And he's just not good with money. I currently earn a bit more than him but I have loans whereas he doesn't. We agreed we should get married. But can't afford a wedding so I suggested going to the registry. We wouldn't even be able to go on a honeymoon. It's a little annoying but that's life. What has made me incredibly hurt is the fact that in his previous relationship he was going to propose to his ex and buy her an engagement ring. She ended up cheating on him. Now we're together and he thinks I should have to either pay for half the ring or buy him something to equal value. Let me just clarify I already stated $600 is more than enough. I'm not an over the top flashy girl. I think what's more hurtful is that by all accounts he would've bought her the ring and used to help her out and take care of her. But the reason I pay for so much for the baby is that no matter what I want to buy he says it's not needed or extravagant ( even a high chair). We argue over money to the point that I no longer ask when it comes to our daughter. I don't think I'm being unreasonable but he says I am. Please help. Link to comment
