How should expenses be split between couples?

Dikesh Malhotra
President & CEO, IMS Group

I think finance management is a key component in families and both should be responsible in making smart expenses. If there is only one earner, it becomes his/her responsibility to cater to all needs however the spouse/partner should feel equally responsible while spending. I think this is a very individual case and depending on whose earnings are higher, they take on bigger expenses. I personally don’t split expenses with my wife and I am happy to pay just as she is happy to let me!
