ya'll just forget I ever mentioned anything..I'm obviously in the minority and no one understands what I'm talking about

I'm actually with you MSP. My wife and I have separate accounts and it works well for us. She makes the house payment I pay for everything else. Works great for us.

I like Ms Pantherfan's advice, but I will go one step farther. Your, hers and ours bank accounts. You pay your bills out of yours, she pays her bills out of hers and you pay house/rent, cable, water, electricity, groceries, anything you both share out of the joint account. Agree before hand how much you both put in each month and who writes the checks.

This worked out good until my last Fiancee stopped working and paid all her bills out of the joint account and wasn't paying any of the other bills. I kicked her out and had to beg the power, gas and water not to turn everything off. (I was literally a day away.)

But, congratulations!
