    I am sure if one puts their mind to it, they could find a rationale reason why they would charge a SO. Even if someone is legally married, they are most often considered "one" anyhow. This would actually raise red flags for fraud in most peoples eyes.

    But in your case, as a photographer, is completely and utterly ridiculous. People help their SO's everyday of the week building their careers and goals long past their usual work hours. Either this guy sucks at his profession and can't get the clientele or he's a complete douchebag ... or both.

    OP, if your friend is single...it's easy to see why. If he's not single, then I feel bad for his significant other. Dude needs to really rethink his attitude before he is ready for a long-term relationship.

    Spouse/Significant other no. Family members, yes, but not full price. I'd rather not work with family just because business is no longer business at that point. Been there, done that, There's always disappointment at the end (payment or service) not being satisfied. I do not mean immediate family, I mean uncles, cousins, etc.

    Of all the questions I've seen asked on this board, this one is among the most odd. Why would anyone ever charge their spouse or significant other (but especially spouse)?

    Is it because you have separate bank accounts and your "own money" so you want to transfer some of your spouse's "own money" over into "your money"?

    The most I'd do is manage a fantasy football team.

    Depends on what kind of work I am hypothetically in and the request but I can't even see myself charging friends for what I do. I guess I don't have that many people that I am super close to (maybe 10) and I don't think I would charge them a dime for anything. If I have a relationship where there is a reasonable amount of give and take then there would absolutely be no issue. If the relationship is being abused then that is a different conversation, I would rather decline a request than get into charging.

    Who the F would charge their spouse for anything? I did your laundry this week, that'll be $10 and don't forget about the tip.

    lol exactly...if I charged my wife for something, I'd be about 100k in debt immediately from all the charges of cooking and cleaning up after me.

    I just showed these responses to him. One of the things he said that I suppose makes a good point is how many of those people are business owners?

    Then the question shouldn't even be if you charge your SO/wife or not.. The first question should be if you should even do the job.

    Nope. I'm a boy. I have never been married. I do have a 6 year old son though.

    Why do you ask??

    The implication in your OP was that you were asking on your own behalf. In a subsequent post you said "I showed these response to HIM", thus implying (at least in most relationships), that you are a female.

    It's 2016, gender is apparently fluid now, so we can't assume anything.

    WTF?? I'm Indian, and literally every single Indian person I know (both here and in India) would NEVER dream of charging a loved one for ANYTHING. Take your idiotic stereotypes to the D&D.
