We talked about it being “our money” when we got engaged, and then more when I moved in, but it didn’t really start to feel like “our money” until after the wedding when we started combining accounts.  When my paycheck started going into the joint checking account, then that account felt like “our money” to me.  Until that point, it felt like his money.

We’re still working toward “our money” but we’re only about 6 weeks married.  I do think it will take a while, especially for us since we are both older and established and have savings and investments and stuff.  Especially for me as I’ve never been married and always did everything on my own before.

When we moved in together, it was “our money”, just separate accounts.

As we just got our joint checking account (already had a joint savings account), now I *really* think it as our money.
