Do you and your husband have joint checking or seperate?

Ok. I picked other. I am the weird one. I don't use banks. My husband and I have a green dot card if we need to make online purchases. Other than that we are bank and card free.

Other. My husband has his own account that his direct deposit goes into. But we also have a joint account for me to use.

I picked other- I don't have any bank accounts. Joint or separate. But I have legal permission to call the banks and talk about his accounts. DH just gives me cash or hands me a card when we need to buy something.

I picked other because we have a joint account and we have our separate accounts. Oh and we're married.

Separate, and love it. We don't fight over money or how its spent. I like to shop he likes to save, with separate accounts we don't have to worry how the other is spending the extra money.
