One account for us. I feel it makes us more United and more a ‘we’ instead of a ‘you and me’.
We earn about the same – I’m self employed so some months I don’t earn much/anything but other months I earn almost double what what he earns (depending on the time of year). It’s nice to have his salary as a constant stability for the months I know will be bad for me, but then the months which are good means we have transfer a lot over to our saving account.
We both have the same attitude with spending and probably both spend more or less the same. I probably spend a little more on eating out with friends than him, but he probably spends a little more on clothes than me, haha.
It’s made us more of a partnerships and if we go through a bad time with money, we are in it together and it’s more a ‘we shouldn’t really do that, money is tight’ rather than ‘i can’t do it, you go ahead’.
