A post from the Smith Alumnae Forum )

I can't help it, I read the Smith Alumnae Forum. Someone posted today asking about advising her boyfriend to invest part of some windfall money he's getting. Two people have responded to this, both women married to men, who said that because the poster is not married to her boyfriend, she can't say anything to him about his money. Maybe if it comes up in casual conversation she can mention IRAs or something.

What? What is this? How do two people who live together in a committed relationship and share expenses not have any leeway to talk about finances and spending habits just because they don't have a legal contract? Is this that whole "I can't get married so I don't realize that people actually use it as an arbiter of commitment" thing?
