There are many schools of thought on how couples manage money. Joint everything? Separate everything? A happy medium? Here’s one person’s take:
I’ve been married previously, and my ex-husband and I had joint finances. We had nothing but trouble with money. Many times a month, every month, for our entire marriage. Rightly or wrongly, this made me a little leery of joint finances.
I’m re-married, and my husband and I chose to have mainly separate finances.
