Love, Money, and the Great Rent Debate 💔💰

In the world of love and shared living spaces, our couple, 'Techie Beau' and 'Service Sweetie', find themselves at a crossroads. With the decision to move in together, they face the age-old question of financial responsibility in a relationship. While Techie Beau believes in an equal 50/50 split, Service Sweetie, currently unemployed due to the pandemic, argues for a more income-based approach. The debate intensifies when the 'man cave' enters the equation. Is a bigger kitchen for shared meals equivalent to a personal man cave? The internet has been buzzing with opinions on this intriguing situation. Let's see what the top responses have to say...🌐💬
