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 :(

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.

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. :)

I wouldn't cement a place til you get down there....Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island, Wild Dunes, many places down there.....I'd get down there with NO PLAN and 'feel' it out. Ask the desk people, locals, go off on your own for a few hours one day, etc. You'll know what's right when you see it and timing is everything.

Ok, so you want to propose in Charleston?
Well my friend, you are in luck. 4 years ago, I proposed, now we are happily married with a newborn...good times amigo. Back to the luck part...I am going to give you my "plan" for proposing in Charleston, as I have been living here for 8 years and I know everything. I spent 2 months planning this, however, a week after I bought the ring, I pulled the car over on the side of the road and poped the question (I was really anxious, and couldnt wait!)
My plan was this.
Have dinner at nice restaurant called Charleston Grill, http://www.charlestongrill.com/ it's a 4 diamond, fine dining restaurant downtown. After dinner, if you walk out onto King Street, ther is an old style movie theater directly across the street. I was gonna have them write, (Kate Upton) will you marry me? on it. Then when she sees it, be on one knee...

http://t1.gstatic.co...9Wd6P5-9W3bLNm3
You can call 843-722-4900, that's charleston place hotel, which runs events at the theater, they are in controll of the sign.

That restaurant and theater are right in the middle of everything, tons of cool places to walk around and take pictures, etc....

I would suggest staying at the Holiday Inn, which is located right across the river, it's a $5 cab ride from downtown, and the rates will be much cheaper than any hotel in the historic district. It's known as the tall round holiday inn, 556-7100.

Good luck!

P.s. if she says no, at least you now know there are some lonely huddlerz out there that would take care of her, lol!
