    Weve been living together for 3 years, and we have just recently become engaged. We have an incredibly trusting relationship.

    I wouldn't,

    I'm getting married in May and I am planning on keeping my own account.

    We will just split up the bills, with me paying the majority, and her having a couple to be responsible for.

    I'm pretty much in the same boat as you are bro. If you trust her, which I assume you do or you probably wouldn't even be considering it, then go for it. All you need to do is keep one eye on it. My girl's the same way, she's so good with managing funds that I actually was the one who asked to do it. I just keep an eye on it, and in the past year the only time I raised an eyebrow was over the holiday, but it turned out to be $$$ spent on presents for me.

    Id wiat till after your married bro. Speaking from experience anything can happen till the rings on her finger, and even then **** can happen. But my advice would be to wait till after your married to get joint accounts...

Seriously though, if u love and trust this woman and she is better, why not? Only gonna take stress away from you and give you more time to do what you will......JC

    Maybe 1victor and I are jaded, but after being married once, and having a joint account, and seeing my money constantly being wasted, I'll never do it again.

    Money is the #1 issue, behind sex of course. Take from the "expert". Never share this. Separate finances, my parents do it and it works. DUDE........... it will become HER money not our money. How you gonna skim for gear?

    Keep your money as your own untill you get married. Having your own bank account is a valuable thing that is stripped from ya when you get married. Anything can happen between now and then, enjoy your own money while its your own.

    Dude if she makes more than you I would do it. Seems like the benefits out weigh the risk to me.

    Go ahead and get a joint account (but don't let the cops find out, haha) BUT keep a seperate one for yourself. Have your paycheck, if it's an auto deposit, deposited into your account then transfer however much you want to to the joint account each paycheck. Trust me, after 18 years of marriage, you really need to keep one of your own.

    Hmmmmm From the DAY I got married, our account was joint. One house, joint bills and financial responsibiities. Bills came in and I paid them ... after the bills if he wanted money for cars crap or whatever, he told me and if the necessities were covered, he took what he needed...and vice versa. For a long time I did make more than he did and for a while on several occasions, I was the sole breadwinner. IT was always OUR money. When we divorced, he had to relocate from overseas and completely start over. Took what he wanted from the house, a small amount of cash (I had the kids and the bills so he didn't take a lot) and off he went.

    Joint accounts can be managed just fine. The key is trust. If you trust her, create a joint household account and agree to each keep separate accounts as well. Establish what percentage goes into the joint and what stays in the individual accounts. The reason I encourage individual accounts is because if you go out and make a purchase on the joint account without coordinating with her....or vice versa...you can run into over draft issues. Also, if you want to suprise her with a gift...hard to do if she's balancing the check book.

    Good luck ..

    I would not do it since there is really no need to ever have a joint account. Designate who pays which bills and keep it all seperate.
