To give do half of this money?

I have a feeling I'm going to get flamed for this but anyway...

I started a uni course in September and applied for my bursary and help towards my child care costs. It's nursing so the bursary's quite good. Anyway, the child care help has just been sorted out and the payments have been back dated. Dp and I split the nursery fees. Should I give him half of the back dated payment (where it will be spent on nights out and other shit) or keep it for myself (and buy cheap, much needed winter boots and christmas presents)? He earns almost double what I do and we split all the bills for the house equally.

Obviously when it's time to pay the nursery I'll split the left over amount so we both pay the same.

Thank you for all your replies. We don't really share house duties either but tbh it doesn't bother me. I quite like having a proper clean, it's therapeutic. How sad!

You have all been really helpful with your suggestions and brought a few well needed home truths to my attention. Thank you so much.

Ah good luck sorting this one out.
Sounds like more than the money needs sorting.
