Prospective Marriage Visa - Financial Aspect


I have a quick question regarding the Financial Aspect category that's part of the Evidence of the Relationship part of the application. It states that we have to provide at least one of the following for the Financial Aspect:

Evidence will be required that you and your partner share financial commitments and responsibilities, including:
evidence of any joint ownership of real estate or other major assets (for example, cars,
appliances) and any joint liabilities (for example, loans, insurance);
sharing of finances;
legal commitments that you and your partner have undertaken as a couple;
evidence that you and your partner have operated joint bank accounts for a
reasonable period of time; or
sharing of household bills and expenses.

My question is, what if we haven't shared any expenses together? The thing is when my fiancee came over here to visit me (we met online), he spent about six months with me here in Australia and we lived with my parents. We contributed a bit to the groceries and just helped with some living expenses with my parents but none of it was exactly written down on paper. It was kind of just handing my parents some cash. There were weeks when he would pay and weeks when I paid but none of it was official.

Any suggestions for this financial aspect evidence?

Note: we did try to open a bank account together in both our names but we were unable too due to the fact that he was on a tourist visa. But we do have details and documents that state we did try to open an account together. Will this help in any way?

Thanks in advance,

The financial aspects of sharing are not so necessary for a PMV as what it is for a partner visa, so all you can do is document the situation you had and if your individual bank accounts show regular withdrawals, you could look at using that to support any statement you provide.
