  1. Well yeah, that would be shit. You’d take into account what each could afford though, when looking at rent or mortgage etc. I guess I am lucky that my boyfriend and I do earn roughly the same and that we both still have money after everything is paid. It helps not to have any kids as well.
  2. Thats a tricky one because even though you may pay more initially for the deposit, if you both pay the mortgage equally then it would be fair to say that approx equal split would be expected. If you pay more in general (i.e more deposit & mortgage) then I would say she shouldn't get half, you should get a proportion of what each paid in. I think there is a bit of a generation gap. My boyfriend and I have lived together for nearly 12 years and have always had seperate accounts and did what we want with our own money. We pay half for everything (though payments usually go from my account and he gives me the money back). If either of us is a bit skint one month then we'll lend the other money but we do keep a tab of it and give it back on payday. I certainly wouldn't give him my wage to control nor would I want him to do the same, I think it stems from having a previous relationship that was abusive - you have to retain some independence so you can stay/remain in the relationship as you want to, not because you need to or can't do otherwise.
  3. Calling Cards of Morons

    I was heading to the shop earlier and I got to the crossing there were about 6 people standing waiting to cross the road. Not one of them had the sense to press the button to stop the traffic and as soon as I walked up and pressed it, the lights changed. I mean, it’s not difficult is it? Fucking idiots.
  4. Impressive that they have managed to mention Rangers three times already and the game has just kicked off.
  5. The Leeds Thread

    I don't think you can use that as a standard though. They both moan about absolutely fucking anything at the best of times, even more so when it involves each other.

    Cheers. Yeah, looked pretty bad.

    Salah getting it tight on the BBC for diving again, did anyone see it? Was it as bad as they made out?
  8. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I think these cross-party talks are just a smokescreen. The Guardian are still reporting that May won't change her mind on a customs union or second referendum, which really rules out most of the ideas that the other parties have. The talks have no chance of being successful whilst May refuses to budge from her position, one that has already been rejected by Westminster.
  9. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I doubt she's a hard Brexiter ideologically, though she certainly didn't have much goodwill towards immigrants whilst at the Home Office. Shes an opportunist though - if she thinks she can take something out of a Hard Brexit then she would do it. I think her concerns are less Britain and more, being PM and making sure she and the Tories are ok for the forseeable future.
  10. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    May could rule it out as an option shes willing to consider. As it is, it looks as though, given the timewasting and refusal to even rule it out as a consideration, that no deal is perhaps what they are aiming for.
  11. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Well it puts him ahead of May on the question answering count. I don’t May has ever actually given an answer to any question she’s ever been asked, not in Westminster anyway.
  12. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I agree with their stance on extending just for more talks but I think the EU are pragmatic and Parliament taking over control would be a sizable shift in proceedings. I expect they would allow an extension, possibly even for more talks, if they are talking to different people who have more willingness to find a fully workable solution (i.e fewer red-lines and wanting something closer to BINO).
  13. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I think that’s worse. He’s Trump with half a brain, just enough to plot his own route but not enough to understand the consequences of the things he’s saying and doing.
  14. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    He was awful but I liked how his pish was being argued against, makes a change.
  15. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Would anyone be surprised? Blatant lying is what he does best.
