Checks and Balances: Do You Share an Account With Your Spouse?
The three things couples typically fight over are time, sex and money. We want to talk about the latter. What's that song? "It's all about the money, money, money." We all need money to live, we know that two incomes are better than one, but the larger question is how do you handle your money?
Rik and his wife have separate accounts and each pay different bills and don't share spending money. Michele and Jay also have separate accounts. I'm getting married later this year and for the first time in my life I will share an account with my future wife and put all the money in one basket that she will control. Everyone does it differently, but we want to hear from you. Vote in our poll or call the show and let us know how you think accounts ought to be set up together or separate?
