For those members that are married - how many of you have exclusively joint accounts with your spouse? My wife keeps telling me we need a joint account, and I don't disagree with that in the least - but she says every penny we make should go into it. I have no problem with putting a large percentage of our income into one, but that's not good enough for her. I feel like I should mention that I make more than her, and my credit is far better than hers (we just bought a house on my credit alone). She acts like we don't have enough to pay the bills and she's hurting for cash - but the bills always get paid and I never deny her anything she needs that she needs help with paying for. She keeps saying we are married now, so everything we have is OURS - including the income. When she says that, it sounds more to me like she may as well be saying "Everything you have is mine, and everything I have is mine". It also feels like she's only doing it to keep tabs on MY spending, and reserve the right to bitch about anything I spend money on. Am I wrong to want even a small amount of financial privacy in the marriage?
