My boyfriend and I have been together for about 2 1/2 years, and have lived together for the majority of that time. After we began dating, I moved into his house about 2 months after. I am a divorced mom of 4. My ex is retired, and he has the kids about 60% of the time. In our household, my guy makes a little more than I do income wise. In addition to his regular job, he also does side work for enjoyment and gets paid quite well. He pays the mortgage, gas and half of the electric. I pay for the water bill, half of the electric and the household groceries and goods. In addition, we both have car payments, and I put out extra $ on a regular basis for my children, of course. My b-f enjoys cars and spends a considerable amount of money maintaining them or improving them. Whenever he does a side job, he says that it's a good thing he worked it so we could pay the mortgage. Whenever I ask to go to dinner, nothing fancy, once a week, he says I should be the one to pay half of the time. I disagree, considering I purchase all the groceries for 3 plus meals per day, practically every day of the week. I don't ask for anyhting else, if I need something for myself or want it, then I will buy it on my own. Just wondering if I am in the wrong?
