  • Joint for sure. When we married, we became one, as did our finances. I am "in charge" of the money though, that way it doesn't get confusing with both of us dipping into it.

  • I have my own, that my pay is deposited in to, and so does he. We have a joint account that we both put money into monthly, for bills and saving.

  • Joint! Everything has both our names on it - he takes care of the investments, and I take care of the checking and savings accounts and paying bills.
