Couples: Do you have 1 combined bank account or seperate accounts?

I was talking with a couple-friend of mine and my wifes last night. They told me that they have deliberately maintained seperate bank accounts although they have been married for a few years now. His check goes into his account... her's into her account. They agreed on who pay's which bills out of which account and then each draws upon their own account for non-monthly spending (impulse, toys, daily lunch, etc).

I thought that was weird, but they told me that another couple-friend of ours does basically the same thing only this 2nd couple has 3 bank accounts. A joint account that most of the money goes into to pay scheduled/budgeted/monthly bills out of... and then each person puts some agreed upon % of their own pay check into their own private account to use in the same way. The bulk of both paychecks goes into the joint account (ie 90 joint... 10 personal).

My wife and I had a joint checking account before we even got married, so this whole thing seems really weird to me. I'm just curious how many here have a similar arrangement with their spouse.

We're one couple so we have one set of accounts.

Multiple accounts are dumb IMO. You'll wind up having lower dollar amounts and won't qualify for as good an interest rate.

I've never understood how a married couple can have separate accounts. You're either a team or you aren't. What happens if one person loses their job? Are they supposed to borrow money from the other to meet "their half" of the bills? Will they be scrounging and eating Ramen while the working spouse is eating steak?

Make sure that bad boy is covered in the will somewhere or she could wind up completely out of luck on that account. Best case it would wind up in probate forever.

IMO the man works and pays ALL the support. So one account should do. The lady can handle the books just fine...just hand her your paycheck.
Men make more money this way.

However, IF the woman wants to work.... it's her money...for jewels, furs, shoes, clothes whatever so long as she feeds him, gives him sex, cleans, handles chores and does bulk of childrearing.
