congrats, good luck, go deep!

no advice on Charleston...I've only been there once, it seemed nice! I like the previously mentioned bridge idea...if she says no, it's a quick step and gone!

Bridge was just a joke....not a place for a proposal. Battery wouldn't be bad though.

Congrats! Marriage is great! I've been happily married going on 8 years....3 words of advice from me...

Separate

Bank

Accounts

You're welcome :)

and Charleston is a great place to do it

That actually might be the worst advice

We could start a thread a about joint or separate accounts. I think few young couples can successfully do separate accounts.

how so? Obviously it works perfect for us..It may not work for everyone..but to keep some money separate is smart

I take care of bills..I let him know what I need..he transfers money to me..and I transfer money to him sometimes...I like to know how much money I'm working with..one debit card is all that's associated with my account..no one else spends on it..I know exactly what I have at all times..why is that bad?

oh wait..you're not married..what the hell do you know...come back to me after a few years

you know what bruce...I take back any advice I obviously don't know what I'm talking about, I am only just a woman...good luck and god speed.

Awesome news and congrats man! I'm a tad too young to give marriage advice, but I will share something I've learned over my short years. You can either be right, or you can be happy. Remember it.

you are the exception and not the standard then...everyone that I've talked to about this has given the opposite advice. I see the ones who keep it separate and its a huge issue. One buddy struggles while she's off buying Kate Spade purses...but she contributes to the bills and lives at a different income level. (Actually know several like this)

We already combined our bills. We both have a credit card (I keep my limit low) and I have a Amex Charge because I might throw $2-5k in business travel on there a month.
