Ok, here's my latest quandry. I'll try to keep the explanation fairly short and to the point. I am moving with my boyfriend across country in about two and a half months. He is in the Airforce and has been accepted to a school program that lasts for a year. He will still be airforce, but on school leave. Don't know what the technical names are. So he will still be recieving his military pay, plus his housing and living alowances. He is going to have plenty saved up before we leave so we won't be scrounging for money. My problem is that I have never been dependent on anyone, aside from my parents. And after this move, I will be, at least for the first couple of months. I won't have a job lined up ahead of time, and I don't have that much saved up, so I don't know how long it will carry me. We have already discussed all of this and we have both agreed that the only way to make it work is if he is going to "carry" me until I have some money flow. Question to everyone: How has the sharing of money affected your relationship, and how do you keep it neat? Do you log it all and dutifully repay it later? How should I handle this? To be honest I'm feeling pretty vulnerable since I will be up a creek without a paddle. But I do love him, and he is a very trustworthy guy so I'm not at all worried about him "cutting me off" before I'm established. I just don't want it to cause us problems. We will be living together obviously, and we are currently living together, but we have always managed our own bills. It has never been a joint effort. Thanks.
