Do you have a "F*ck You" Account? (Explained)

The "F*ck You" account as in a secret account just in case you and your hubby/SO break up (or anything else that happens), you have money stashed away to support yourself. I have a few friends who have this account.

  • no.. thats like keeping a huge secret. i'd be PISSED if I found out my hubby did that to me.. If something happens.. my F you account will be me driving to the bank first thing in the morning and emptying the bank account :)

  • I don't now...I wish I'd have had one in the past...like Xynyth said we have a hard enough time keeping money in our "Yay, happy us!" account. But when I am done with school (at the end of next summer) and I start working as a nurse, I will be putting money away again, as an emergency fund, be it for me or for anything we as a couple may come across.

  • I'm proud to have the "Bag Lady" syndrome that Oprah speaks so much of. My biggest fear is if my life falls apart. So yeah, I horde.

  • I know some women who do, but to keep a secret like that hidden from my husband is something I wouldn't do and I would hope he would never keep a secret like that from me. I also know he would be supportive if I opened my own savings account, but I wouldn't hide it.
