Thanks for all your advice ladies! You have all been most helpful and informative.
Something else I would like to know from you experienced bees is regarding finances.
If you are comfortable sharing in comments please do, do you guys think joint accounts or seperate accounts is best? What do you bees think are pros and cons of each?
SO and I have talked about this, we plan on having seperate accts. Even before SO that has always been my plan. SO is in agreement with this MOSTLY because he had a joint account with someone else before and they totally took advantage of it and ripped him off at every turn. Our plan is we’ll decide up front who’ll pay for what monthly and that will just come out of each person’s seperate account. BUT I would also like to maybe have a joint savings…not sure…?
Also, just out of curiousity how large a purchase can you make independently (for your own personal items or even for the home) without having to tell your SO/FI/DH? Do you guys have an agreed upon amount, for example if your going to spend over $x.xx we need to talk about it and both agree that the purchase is okay? Or is this never an issue in marriage? I hear that finances is what most couples disagree on most…
Anyway, please let me know your thoughts on joint accounts or seperate accounts and why or why not. Thanks!
