In a relationship, who should pay for dinner/taking her out, her shopping expenses, vacations you go on together, and other bills?
The guy, or 50/50, or take turns paying?
In my opinion, the guy should pay for everything. To me it comes down to respect and chivalry, taking care of her. I was raised that way, but admittedly that's just my opinion.
What is yours?
- The guy should pay for everything, including her shopping expenses and vacationsVote A
- The guy should only pay when you go out for dinner or something similarVote B
- Always split the bill or take turns payingVote C

I can understand why some people make think the guy should pay for dinner etc at the beginning of a relationship but paying for everything for life is not how I could live.
My s.o take turns, kind of, informally I suppose we don't say it's your turn etc. I pay x bill he pays y bill. We'll go somewhere on a whim and either one of us could pay. Its like you've stated "taking her out", what about taking him out. We're together 12 years and at the end of the day its really all coming out of the same pot but I could never have him pay for everything, my shopping, hair etc even at the beginning I insisted on paying for dinner etc1
