No, there's no need to. Every time I get paid a percentage of my check goes into my own savings account and the rest is split up into our family accounts. I've had this account since I started my first job and I plan on keeping it always. He knows and doesn't have a problem with it, just like I don't have a problem with him having his own side savings account. As long as our bills and family accounts are taken care of, the remaining funds are free game to use however we see fit.

Yes. Only because he has a gambling problem. As long as he doesn't know we have extra money, then he won't gamble it. I don't hid it from him to keep for myself though.

He takes money out of his paycheck to use how he chooses so I feel less guilty if I buy something for just me.

I am a substitute teacher for right now so for about. Months I don't bring in a dime but my husband is an idiot that thinks he can make near minimum wage and live like a freaken CEO. So this year I am splitting our money. I won't hide it but we won't share anymore. I will put half of mine in our shared checking account and the other half for my gas, my credit cards and me and the kids needs. He will be encouraged to do the same. I can't keep living at the mercy of his whim. Next year if I still don't have a teaching job than at least I will have some money put away.

No, but unlike your husband, she's not an ass.
