What are you and FI/DH doing about your finances?
Posted 20 May 2009 - 02:21 AM
If you are already married, did you and DH combine your finances in a joint account? Or keep them separate?
If engaged, what are your plans once you are married or currently if already living together?
I would love to hear your feedback on your stance and what most people are doing these days.
We will be combining our incomes. Still talking this one over.It is such a pain transfering money back and forth. I will be so excited to get our joint account so I don't have to transfer money all the time.

I am still tryng to pay off old debt and my student loans - and make significantly less money than DH. I wish that we at least had one joint account, especially since I struggle to make ends meet some months, since I am 100% commission ... but so far, no dice. DH pays for everything when we go out/go on trips/ etc (I'll pick up the check for drinks/dinner/etc whenever I can) ... so I guess it does work out, though.
I do have a savings account through a credit union that I've had since I was little - and DH is going to start givin me money to deposit into that account to use for vacations etc.

We are paying for the wedding by credit cards so that we can accrue the points and then we use the joint account to pay off the credit cards.
FH handles all the bills and expenses because I suck at keeping track of those things. He's automated practically all of our bills so that he doesn't have to think about it. If anything were to happen to either of us (God forbid), our bills will still be paid as long as there's money in the account.
