one person said that a friend told them there's 2 ways to handle money in a marriage -
1. separate accounts, with each one having separate control of their own money
2. a joint account, with one partner handling the budget and the other not acting like a child when the limits of the budget collide with what they want to do
I've only been married 18 months, but Drew and I don't do either of those things. We set our budget & make financial decisions together. We often disagree, but we do talk it out before making most financial decisions.
I'd be curious to hear how things work in your home - do you think most couples eventually settle into one of the two patterns listed above?
