If you're spending 2k without consulting your wife at all, I don't know what to tell you.
i don't have to consult my wife, since it came out of my account. Thats what my point is. Of course i would tell her, but she can't really say no since it would be coming strictly out of my account. Again this is just an example.
It works for us. We trust each other enough to know that neither one of us will do something stupid with our money, to where if we got into a bind we wouldn't be able to get out of it. We don't need to check up on what each of us spends. That's trust. It's the same trust joint account people have, just in a different way. IE, not having the potential for an argument for something the other person may deem as not needed or stupid in their opinion.
I don't see how this is an issue, i'm not bashing on the joint account people, because what works for them, works for them.
