the law in most states says otherwise.
It works for a lot of people. My opinion is that people should do what works for them, and not worry about what other people do.

I don't undertstand the "what's mine is mine" way of thinking.
I came into this marriage with quite a bit of real estate. The first thing I did was add my DH (two months before our marriage) to two deeds and, from then on, put him on everything. We only have joint accounts.
Hell, the only things we apply the "mine" rule to are the bag of organic suckers in the back fridge (his) and the occasional bag of Double Stuf Oreos, which no one but me likes anyway. (that doesn't sound right "me likes"...any grammar Nazis wanna help me out with that one?)
I know people who do the "what's mine is mine" bit with money and objects. Not one of them has what I'd consider a sucessful marriage and several are no longer married.
I don't know- I think that after 20+years, IT'S ALL MINE!!! hehehehehe
