How do you handle you and your partners money?

Kissy Kissy
Do you believe that couples should keep separate bank accounts ? Who controls the money?

We have a very elaborate set up. We have almost all joint accounts, but two accounts are designated as "single" accounts. 10% of our paycheck goes into these accounts for discretionary spending that the other cannot monitor or say anything about.

As for everything else, I'm in charge of paying the bills and such. Each week I do a simplified spreadsheet for my husband to look over that says the balances in all the accounts, any debt, and what bills are due for the week. He approves everything and any money left over he decides what it goes towards.

I think joined accounts are a really, really bad idea.

We have separate accounts with separate banks and it's probably going to stay that way for a long time. We split the cost of bills, groceries, etc., but anything left over is ours to keep.
