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

    • Skates hard when he's out there. Not a "stand and watch" defenseman. Likes to move a lot in the offensive zone, always looking to stay open for passes either up the boards from the corners or fading in to the high slot for the one timer. Is disciplined though and picks his spots. Has a good shot and knows it, which is good. Will let a guy get by him, but is fast enough usually to make up for it. This is where I think he'll need to be with somebody who can manage a streaking forward alone for a few seconds while Fleury catches up.

      Defensively, he's not a liability like Murphy is, but he isn't a physical presence as of yet. 6'3" frame and the programs say he's just over 200 lbs, but he looks closer to 190, IMO. But being young, he'll put on size quick and could easily get to that 210-215 mark without sacrificing his skating quickness. Very good in the corners fighting for pucks and his breakouts are crisp and decisive. Will turn it over with a heavy forecheck though. Again, young. His mistakes are few and far between, in the Checkers games I have been to, but they are usually pretty big "uh oh" moments. Gives up net front at times because again, he likes to move. He likes to go after pucks and pressure guys down low to get the puck out quickly. His biggest strength is probably his biggest detriment, you could say. Goal tending and strong center play compensated for these chances more often than not, and you could argue that it really wasn't a problem, but it is something to look at when considering how that could effect the Canes game-to-game, given our goaltending. He'll have to have a little more presence of mind and situational awareness at the NHL level, but with guys like Slavin, Pesce, and Faulk to learn from, he'll be just fine.
    • Unless they're gonna give me some of that cash I don't understand why you help the Pelicans
    • I'm not mad about this trade back. Other comparable backup guards out there that will probably still be there at 40. Plus we added cash. Not too worried about it. Let's grab one of the other PGs at 40 though
