Because DH is a full-time student, we have one checking account from which we pay all our bills. DH's school uses a debit card for financial aid, which we use for school and living expenses as well.

After I got divorced, I said I would always have separate accounts (if I got married again)

I'm sure you're right Carol,
They do (separate) work well for some as do the joint ones as well
Will be interesting to see what you do after DH finishes school.
Although with it all going so well now why rock the boat ;)

Thanks Tasha,
Wow on you each having your *mad* money in separate accounts.
Do you guys ever share or borrow from each other?
Nice on the joint one for the *major* stuff :)

Yes, we've been known to borrow from each other, but it doesn't happen very often.

My husband and I have had problems with being overdrawn on our checking account. Now there is just one account with his name on it. The money that comes in is "our" money. That's the way it should be. If I wanted to, I can go on his online bank account to see all the transactions made. We do not fight over money, as it should be :)

Nice to see you here sarahgrace,
Great you two are doing better with the one account now.
Have you thought about getting your name added to the account?
Sure hope we see you here again :)
