  • We don't have a joint account either. Hell, I haven't even taken his last name.

  • No
    We each have our own bank accounts. We each have our own checking and savings accounts. We also have a joint checking account that we each contribute a percentage of our income.

  • I'll never understand separate accounts. First of all why pay all those fees? Plus, if you make a lot more than him, do you order the lobster while he gets a green salad? Are you going to retire 10 years before him? I don't get it. We're married (for 20 years) it's our money.

  • Yes. Yes you are. Out of billions of married people you are the very person with a separate account.
