Read more fully on this issue:

then you must have a license. Sharing expenses is just that and nothing more. I have never asked anything of guests and they never ask me when I am their guest. I am having a problem with a lady friend that wants to go all the time, offers to buy lunch, but never has money when it comes time to pay so I pay, but if she sees something she wants and can't get me to buy it money miraculously appears. I did put my foot down and told her from now on she will have to pay expenses up front or she dosent go anymore.
