Do you and your SO have a joint account or do you keep things seperate? If you have two accounts how do you decide who pays what bill lol?

I never understood the seperate account thing .... BUT hey if it works for you!

  • We have joint accounts, but i don't think he know the account number or balances. He makes the money and I distribute it.

  • We have a joint for the bills and money , but I had a separate one before we married. My paypal is attached to that account. He tried a few years ago to set up the account for paypal but never verified it so I just use mine.

  • We have separate accounts and a joint account. We just put a certain percentage of each paycheck in each. That way, If he wants something, he can get the money out of his account and vise versa. Our joint account is purely for bills.

  • We've always had joint accounts. We have a business checking, a personal checking, a personal savings, and accounts for the kids. We also have a joint credit card and I have two cards that are just in my name.

  • We have a joint account because I don't have a job - there is no point. If I had a job, we'd still probably have a joint account or maybe we'd do separate accounts and use the joint account for bills, like Morgs. But as of now, if I do ever get money, it goes into the joint account.
    We don't have a problem with having a joint account though.
