Can you have a happy relationship with separate bank accounts?
My husband and I have always had our accounts combined with the idea that because we're married, all income we earn individually is our joint income. My sister and her husband, however, have separate accounts and neither has any idea how much the other makes. He has bills come to the house in his name and pays them from his account and she does the same. The house is in both their names but that's the only thing they have in common. She didn't even take his name when they wed. They both seem pretty unhappy and I wonder if their separate accounts is adding to that, since they seem to live separate lives for the most part, too?
Do you think you can have a happy relationship when you have separate bank accounts like that? What if one of you is bad with money and the other is a saver? How do you work as a team for your future together if you're living that way?
