One of them is no longer willing to help pay for it. His excuse is he spends a lot in support of the family.
He doesn't want to share the cost.

Fire alarms are pulled here. Not saying that is the only style of device, but it is common. So, you see, other options are possible.

The truth?
The first sounds like it was spoken by a non-native English speaker.
More truth?
These sound like sentences spoken to a child, and so, they are all fine.
