I found an interesting clip online of Dj Drewski and his fiancée Sky from the Love and Hip Hop New York cast. In the video, the couple were having a discussion about weither or not she should contribute to their very expensive rent or if as the provider, the burden should fall completely on him.
Check out the brief clip I posted on my Instagram
I think this is a topic not enough couples discuss BEFORE moving in together. Although, honestly I really don’t know how. Scratch that, yes I do. By being caught up in the fairytale idea of living with a man vs sitting down and figuring out the reality of living with a man.
I swore on a stack of Watchtowers once that I would never live with another man. However, a few years later here I am planning to do just that. I wouldn’t be embarking on this journey if I didn’t know Bae was worth it, but that doesn’t change the fact that I’m used to doing certain shit, and as another adult who has lived alone for a long time so is he. So we can’t ignore the fact that even though we have amazing compatibility, there will still be a whole heap of ways we can get on each others very last nerves.
But back to the topic at hand, who should pay the bulk of the bills upon cohabitation?
