Sharing Income

Two people (married, dating, SOs, whatever) live together and share financial accounts. They put all their income into this, and pay bills from it. They have a joint savings account that's growing steadily and have little or no debt.

Let's say they make roughly the same amount of money for simplicity sake.

How could/should they handle "fun" spending?

Obviously there's "shared fun" spending which isn't an issue (seeing movies together, going out to dinner, etc), but how do they handle "individual fun" spending, like the guy wants to buy a new gaming computer or the girl wants weekly manicures (for example)?

How do you and your SO handle fun spending?
