I loved this post lol.  My DH and I have an agreement.  He carries cash, I keep all bank cards, credit cards, and checkbooks.  He’s not bad at budgeting on paper, but he never kept up with what his balance was on cards.  With cash he can’t overspend.  It works well for us.

Works the same with us.  I love FH but he is just not as good with staying within the budget as I am.

Oh my. I’m sending SO grocery shopping for me tonight since I have to work and refused to give him my debit card. He gets cash. I’m terrified for when we combine finances because he is not good with cards of any kind!!

It’s kinda cute he cared enough to shop around and find additional stuff at the craft store though wasn’t it? 🙂

I don’t know how your bank works, but I just won’t give DH my pin, as it invalidates my fraud protection.  It may sound a little silly, as I completely trust DH, but say there was a skimmer at Micheals, so there was an investigation and it shows a male using the card instead of you. Unlikely, but I just wouldn’t want to risk that, even though it is a joint account!

So there you have another good reason to not give him your debit card!

My husband has his own card to our account, but won’t have credit cards or anything. He’s getting used to not spending very much because most of it goes to bills, but I think it’s definitely a hard habit to get into. It was for me at least.
