with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
Over our twelve years of marriage, the pendulum has swung between my husband and I when it comes to who is the ‘major breadwinner.’ Sometimes its been me, sometimes it’s been him, sometimes we’re pretty equal. That’s where we’re at right now.
For the first nine years of our marriage, I handled all of our finances. I prepared the budget, paid the bills, and kept track of all of our finances. When I went back to working in an office a few years ago, my husband took over this area as I was pulling long days away from home and he had the time to do it. I took back the reigns this past week, as I have the time again, and it’s been great getting a handle on it again.
How does it work in your relationship? Who is in charge of paying the bills?
