Joint finances?

Is this a good or bad idea? Did you and your dh keep your finances separate when you married or have a joint account?

It's a personal decision. It's right for some but not for others. We share an account but technically my name isn't on it. My situation is a bit complicated though.

We combined everything shortly after we were married. For us, I couldn’t imagine us having separate finances. We work as a team. I realize that different things work for different people though.

DH and I combined our finances. We have a joint account. It’s what works best for us. Neither of us wanted to keep our finances separate; it just didn’t seem right for our relationship. We were also broke teens when we started out, so we’ve built it up over time together.

We have separate accounts. Since I keep our home finances, it’s easier that way. He just deposits the money into my account, he takes the money for the kids’ tuitions and his personal use and I manage the rest.

We have joint accounts..we actually joined them before we got married as he was going to Basic training and wanted me to pay his credit card bill for him. It was just easier to have a joint account.
