But we got a different car for me to drive this week.  Finally got the car I wanted in the price range we wanted.  DH paid for it, it is titled to both of us, and mine to drive and keep the oil changed, etc. 

We already had an "extra" vehicle, so will be selling the car I just bought a few months ago.  Hoping to maybe use those funds to pay off my transmission loan.  (Yes, still chipping away at that, along with two lingering medical bills) 

Have to add here that we went to the bank yesterday and added each other on our accounts as signers.  No debit cards, checks will still have our individual names, etc.  Mostly for emergencies and to make transferring funds easier.  He is tired of writing me a check every month. Kiss  The cool part was that because of the way his accounts were set up, I don't have a service charge any longer and my checks are free! 

Holding off right now opening anything new that is joint, like maybe a savings account. 

Still so quiet around here.   This board is way more active than MSMW.  Sigh....

Hope you sell the other car fast and glad you found what you really wanted to start with.  My DH recently put me on his expense account for the same reason....easier to do transactions.

Again good luck!
