Just a quick comment to say that I ABSOLUTELY agree with this! I think there area various ways that it can work depending on the people involved. MrS and I have always done this - although they shape of how it was done has fluxed over time (depending on our circumstances, who was working, who was in school, etc.) Now that Dude is part of the household, we have worked that in as well.

If they want to spend their "fun money" on new speakers and I want to spend mine on's all good
JaneQ(Me): poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (25+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (7+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
SLeW: platonic hetero girlfriend and BFF
MrClean: hetero mono male, almost lover-friend to me, ex-FWBs to SLeW, friends with MrS
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
