    Bear the expenses/cover the expenses.

    Hello dear teachers and friends,

    As you can easily see, I'm a newbie here and this is my first message:) but i follow all the things happening here and learning some good stuff thank you in advance for contributing this forum!

    And now here is my question.

    What is the difference between " bear the expenses and cover the expenses"

    Is there any unwillingness in " bear the expenses".

    Which one is more common and used in formal writings, agreements?

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: Bear the expenses/cover the expenses.

    They really mean the same, but "bear" implies that it might be done reluctantly.

    My father will have to bear all the expenses if my brother wrecks the car.
