who pays

by Albert Joseph
(Toledo, Ohio)

My wife is graduating from a masters level program. We have invited several immediate family members to the program. I am anticipating that we will go to a restaurant after the ceremony. How do we deceide how the bill is paid? Is everyone liable for their own tab, or am I expected to pay for all?

Dear Albert,

If you are hosting this gathering, you can set this up to suit your own budget. When inviting your guests, simply let them know they are invited to join you and your wife at a restaurant after the ceremony either as your guests or as dutch treat or going dutch. 

Congratulations to your wife on her wonderful achievement.
