    Savings in a bank account? Does this include money tied up in shares? Or just money you can access immediately?

    I am in debt, he has savings. He sees both as both of ours though, so I split the difference and voted that way.

    Geez I wish I had $100k in savings.

    I’m not counting retirement because I don’t consider that “savings” since it’s not easily accessible.  I only include “savings” to be money in my savings account at my bank that sits next to my checking account.

    Hmmm I have student loan debt but money in savings, $10k right now.  Thank god the wedding is almost over because that will go up quickly without all the wedding stuff.

    I also have my retirement account and a deffered comp account.

    @LittleRedOwl:  I currently have about $15,000 in my savings, Fiance has $20,000 probably.  There’s extra lingering in our checking accounts, too.  We are also adding each month to those, so they keep growing.  I also have an IRA but no idea how much is in it.  We are combining our accounts after we get married, so we’ll be over $50,000 by then together.  We also have zero debt between us, everything gets paid off in full each month, no car payments either, just a mortgage right now.

    I can’t answer.  We owe about $50k (student loans, credit cards, PLC) but we also have about $1500 in savings for emergencies so we don’t have to put it on credit (i get paid mileage for my job, that money is in a savings account for car repairs) and I have RSP’s that I’m required to put money in to right now because I took funds out for school and FH has a pension plan at work that we refuse to draw on even though we could.

    A little over $10k.  It used to be much more (relatively speaking, I wish I had $100k or more!!), but we just used quite a bit on a 20% downpayment for a house.

    @LittleRedOwl:  I think we have about $2,000 in savings, no debt. We just started working professionally this year and according to some of our relatives we’re not saving enough.

    I  have $52,000 in the bank.  Roughly $26,000 in bonds.  No debt besides a mortgage. Fiance is in debt  up the ying yang  and has nothing  in savings Cry sometimes  it makes me  think there is no point in getting married  since I will never have a partner that can help me out and contribute to the household.

    Our savings recently dropped big time (we were at $100k+), and we also took on a large amount of debt.  We still have a decent amount of savings though.
