It depends on your objective. In my situation, the joint account is only 
for shared expense or debt. It could also apply to saving. We don’t care 
about who’s doing the expense, if it's join expense (like groceries, 
electricity) it goes on our joint account, otherwise it's in our 
personal accounts.

Understanding who is doing the expense is not the objective here bring 
us to why a simple % help. In agreement with my SO we share in a 33/66%. 
If we have an asset, let say a house, the ownership of it has to be 
split using that %, the same goes for the mortgage, the credit card or 
the budget. If that ratio can be specified, it can then be used in the 
various reports.

 > Would each owner still claim 50% ownership when the other person 
spent 90% of the expenses?

To answer your question, yes, because we do agree that they are joint
