Some Taiwanese girls want to control their bf's money for safe confidence. I think it is very strange, even being a wife it is hard to control anything.
Suggestions: to devide revenue to 3 parts, 1/3 for common saving, 1/3 for common expenses, 1/3 for yourself.
My else sister in law wanted to control my brother's money when she was his gf, but they divorced few years ago. I think she is a sick and crazy woman. If she loves money, she would earn by herself, maybe it is easy to "ask". Some stupid women think to control men is to control their money.
Maybe you need to pay for your love......

This is a very personal and very emotive subject.

Many marital problems in Western society stem from disagreements about money, add to this the cultural difficulties of language and different financial customs and you can get into a mine field.

I realised early on that this was primarily a matter of security. Our house is in joint names and we have a joint bank account and credit card. My wife does not work, but I do so effectively all the money in the joint account and paying the mortgage is mine. When things were better than currently I gave her an allowance so that she had her own money but that is not possible right now.

We both have our own savings accounts and property as well as the joint ones and this has proved not to be an issue. The only real fight we had was when I blew a lot of money in Macau one weekend - enough to buy a couple of nice handbags - I'm man enough to admit this was foolish. :)

Seriously! I slept at the boyfriend's house once when we were having a fight and woke up freezing! Never realised how cold the damn room was until I lost my heater :(

Probablely that is the family education casuing this situation. When we were younng, our parents always told us that the most security thing is to have a lot money. So all the things we try hard to achieve is to earn money no matter in what methods-earning or asking. But that is not corret. Money is important but not so imoportant. So try to educaton your gf. Good Luck!

That's my dream too. Getting up every day to do this shit every day.

If only I were young, pretty, and interested in being nice to men ...

if you really want to skip all this shit, just get her pregnant and she has to marry you and the demands fall away
