re: Having the "Money Talk" with the SO before marriage


Have seperate finances and will always have seperate. We have nearly 0 fights about money and I attribute it to this. Bills aren't split down the middle or any of that bull shite. Pay what debt you come into is our method.

We do share 1 credit card account, but I don't think there is an actual card. If there is then it is buried in the cash drawer.

I just don't understand seperating the money in marriage. If you have to worry about trusting your spouse with money then don't marry them. My wife never had a big money talk before marraige and I have been married a long time. It was just assumed we would work together when it came to money. We do talk about money decisions occasionally but it's never stressful because of disagreements. We share the same values and common goals.

If the marriage is based on money then not sharing would constitute mistrust. Luckily money was not an issue when we were married and it isn't now.

just remember, her money is hers, and your money is joint money.





seriously the way my wife and i do it is joint accounts and each get an allowance each week to spend on whatever. This includes gifts and what have you. Big purchases are joint decisions and come from the joint accounts.
