Do I tell him I shouldn't be paying for my own ring? Or do I shut my fat mouth, be grateful I have one in the first place and help him pay for it since what is mine is his and vice versa?I vote for treating all debt the same, and continuing to contribute regardless of what the money was spent on. It's not like you're paying for an ex-wife's engagement ring or something.Think about this....would you have a different outlook if he had put $x additional in groceries on his card so that he could pay for the ring in cash? Instead of doing that, he payed for groceries with cash, and put $x on the card for the ring. Either way the money is spent, and if you're really treating money jointly, it should all be joint. Otherwise, split up the snowball, and put $x to your debt while he puts $x to his debt, instead of $2x to the shared cards. It's all the same difference in the end, isn't it?
