An online user saw a post on FB.
The user wants to know if it's fair that their roommate pays more since she earns more money than them.

What the FB users wants isn't ideal. Costs for the roommate should only be higher if they have more personal space in the apartment.
What the FB user wants isn't ideal between roommates. The setup is okay between SO's and married couples.
Other people agree that they'll only be willing to pay more rent if they're actually taking more space in the house.
The higher earning roommate should find a new roommate — someone who's actually fair about splitting costs.
Even others agree that this would only work between couples.
The person who gets the Master Bedroom should be paying more. Otherwise, split the costs equally.
The FB user probably isn't in a romantic relationship with their roommate. So they should suck it up, and pay their fair share.
At least his roommates were being nice about asking, unlike the FB poster who obviously wants to take advantage.
Roommates should split equally. End of story.
We don't know who gets the bigger room just from the FB post alone. So it's easy to assume that their rooms are of equal size.
What the FB poster intends to do is to take advantage of their roommate. It's never the fault of the roommate to be earning more money — the FB poster is just being unfair.
It wouldn't be surprising if one day, this person's roommate decides to leave. But maybe it'll teach a thing or two to the FB poster about fairness.
