The phrase "sharing is caring," is a widely accepted norm for any close relationship. When it comes to managing finances between spouses, it is imperative to discuss financial contributions beforehand to avoid conflicts and most importantly to share costs when living together. Every couple has their own way of managing it, but the subject came up for discussion when a Reddit user anonymously turned to the AITA forum for advice. She asked if she was wrong for refusing to compensate her husband for "providing" her with a room to work from home.
