Islamically i believe the man is required to pay all living expenses. A wife can spend her entire salary on herself if she wishes (although this isn't the best way to run a marriage). A man should be prepared to pay all the bills but of course if the wife chooses to splits living costs then it would be better

In a relationship, who do you think should pay the rent? What is the best way for a couple to arrange their financial expenditure?

If anywhere in Islam this is mentioned please share any advice.


Man. Though, his wife can assist him if they have an agreement.

As a husband and wife? The husband 100% of the time. Allah says in Surah Nisa', verse 34:

Men are in charge of women because Allah has made one excel the other, and because they spend their wealth [on women].

This is indicative that the man must spend due to Allah appointing the man over the woman.

و الله اعلم
