I'm guessing my family is in the minority here.

Mom has her account

Dad has his

And they have one together that pays the bills, etc.

Best way IMO.

Thats the way we do it to. Three accounts, one for her, one for me, one joint to pay the bills. She has access to mine and I have access to hers. Never have understood what the big deal is about having a joint account. The important thing is not to hide stuff from each other, unless its for a gift for the other or something of that nature.

My first wife and I had a joint account. It was a friggin nightmare trying to keep track of everything. Especially when my buying lunch while at work cut into her beer and smokes money.

Regarding getting married, I don't really regret either of my marriages. I learned a lot from the first marriage (like who not to marry :)), and I used those lessons learned to make a much better choice the second time around.

I wonder what the first woman learned about marriage from you. :p

We've had a joint account since before we were married. No problems. I had Credit Card debt from the wedding and random poo that come up but it's gone now and she has none. She knows I have a separate "man's account" and she doesn't bother me about it.

She doesn't want to know that I lost/won $3,200 in coinflip. She doesn't want to know how expensive golf is or how much I tip the cart girl. It's basically my allowance to be a man with my friends. It's basically a savings account now :(

Or you were her "one." Or one of her three at least.

She knows that I don't have a clue about the accounts.

If she wanted to take all my money, she could.

I just hope and pray that she does not get tired of me. I would have divorced me YEARS ago.

meant for Bruce

Haven't heard from her in 10 years, so I seriously doubt she stopped at three. For all I know, she might have been married to another huddler. :)
