My BS and I are starting to separate expenses. My dday was a little over a month ago and I have moved out of the house and have been staying at our business.

We both make the same amount of money and have 6 year old.

I was planning to stay at the business for 3 months before I signed a lease on a new place to live.

How did you divide expenses?
What is a fair way for us?

Since I do not have my "own" place yet, I did not have as many expenses.

Her: BS 37

Married 9 years, together 11

You may not have those expenses now, but you have to include them in the planning. Three months is no time at all.

Are you working well enough together at this point where you could sit down with a third party to develop temporary orders? That is the route I would advise you to go if it's possible. Protection there for both your BS and you.
