After dating for over a year, is it still the man's place to pick up all the restaurant tabs?

Unfortunately.

Damn women may have half the money, but they still have all the *****.

Dating over a year? No way that I would always pay..Been with my girlfriend around 5 years..I have paid around 75% of the time.... If your girl does not at least offer to pay she is stingy and she thinks she is too good for you.... I guess if I thought the girl was too good for me I would always pay.

It's the gentlemen thing to do. Sometimes they would offer, but I would never let them. I guess it was just how i was raised.

Regarding myself, I've been married for five years now. My wife and I split every meal we eat (cost wise). It's been that way for years. There have been times when I have bought her dinner but not more than she's paid for herself.

The first couple of dates with a new chick sounds fine to me. If you become serious though, I don't see the point. She makes money too doesn't she?

The wife and I split most everything. On special occasions, like the anniversary of our first date or something like that, I'll foot the bill. Or I surprise her every few weeks with a concert or something where I pay for everything. Other than that, we try to both contribute to all of our purchases. When dating, I tried to pay for everything but she wouldn't have it. She refused to be a girl that is doted on by her boyfriend. First time I had ever dated someone like that, it got my attention for sure. 2 years later we were married...

I've been through a mixed bag of wives and GFs - and I can assert unequivically that while the man should assume he'll paying, it's the women who after a date or 2 step up and sincerely offer to pay or split the check (whether you take them up on it or not) who usually turn out to be the keepers.

First date is the man.
Second date both of you.
Third date should be her.

Even though I am married I usually ask my mom to pay.

Once my wife and I got married, it was not her money and my money. It was ours. There is no splitting anything these days. It's ever who has a debit card in their pocket at the time.

Okay. Well i'm not married.

So that's why I say if you're first going out on dates, it should be the mans job to pay. Like mentioned above, she will offer to pay (which is cool) but I would still decline letting her pay and pay it myself.

It depends on how good looking she is...If she aint really hot, gotta go dutch.

We have a joint savings account together but aside from that, we have our own separate checking accounts where we spend our own money on the things we want for ourselves.

Same with the wife and I. Money is probably the biggest cause of fights in any relationship, so we decided to keep our checking accounts separate that way there would be nothing to fight about. If I run out of money, it's on me and me alone. Same with her. As long as we are both paying our bills, there is no reason for money to come up at all between us...

Definitely. If one of us runs into money problems, we'll help each other. Otherwise if I want to get a Dolphins hat or a new tattoo, I pay for it myself.

We do pretty good. We don't really fight about money but what you say it so true. I bet money has ruined as many relationships as anything else.
