sharing a budget

ok = I guess this will be dull to many (most?) but I'm curious based on what I know of my own history, kinda well, what the standard is out there - so I'm polling. I'm going to set this up anonymous answer so people can feel free to be honest. Thanks for the feedback! =)


For the sake of this poll, either refer to your current or most recent relationship where you lived together - sound good? Thanks so much!
