These are some great resources. I've been dating my boyfriend for 2.5 years and we've been debating whether we should combine finances since we live together and split everything anyway. It's kinda challenging though because I make slightly more than him, yet we split everything 50/50, which leaves him with less spending money. I'm leaning toward combining finances or working out a ratio thing where we pay according to how much we make.
