the wife and I make comparable income. It all goes into one pot. Seems silly to seperate things....I pay the light bill, she buys the diapers, tell her she better come up w/ half the vacation cash or we ain't going etc.

if I was divorced or getting married late in life...I might do seperate accounts.

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.

We already had separate accounts when we got married. With comparable incomes, direct deposits, automatic drafts, etc.. it was just easier to keep both and split the bills.

It did make it easier to keep track of how much we had in our accounts. I never had to check and see if she had withdrawn money before making a purchase (to know if I needed to transfer money from savings or mutual funds). Same with her.

Yep...we talked quite a bit about this subject. At the end we are in this thing together...

true.

my wife also manages our money so she really is the only one who has to stay on top of the day to day and bills.

We just have a general understanding she is to keep X amount in the checking account so I don't every worry about stuff when I spend. Also, we don't really nitpick each other.....just a mutual understanding purchases over Y amount are shared with each other before making them.

exactly!

maybe it's because MrPF and I have been with each other since I was 23 and he was 21...it's just the way we have always done things..12 years later it still works for us..maybe we are weird..who knows..but we never fight about money and we're damn good at communicating about everything else too

what's really important in any relationship is finding out what works and sticking with it...I'm glad we found ours

You better ask that woman to marry you...and quick.

She is gonna wake up one morning and figure out that she can do a hell of a lot better than you.:D

Just like my wife. I found an incredible woman who was willing to put up with me....and I snatched her up QUICK.


That's why I am marrying down next time around. :)

I know what you are all thinking, if I plan on marrying down that doesn't really leave me much to choose from and you are right. I have been scouting out homeless shelters recently in order to find "The One".

or maybe fighting over money is just an excuse people use who shouldn't be together?

like you guys, we never fight about money. Married 5 years, w/ her for 12. Joint accounts.

Although I knew my wife for many years, we became a couple at my stepsons wedding in Charleston and got married there - Cypress Gardens in Moncks Corner to be precise.

I love taking her to Charleston. Stay at the Vendue (not the annex, the actual Vendue Inn) or another really cool place like that. Get a bicycle taxi. Go to one of the great restauraunts out there. Take the ferry to Fort Sumter. Go to the beach, or Middleton Gardens.

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.
