When you get married do you want your own separate bank account ? Watch
And why?... And disclose your age.

and having a joint one would be annoying af, he is entitled to his own too
btw "he" doesn't exist.
I'm 21, and this is the plan for when we live together in a few months.

a joined account, his money is my money and my money is his. at the end of the day marriage is a partnership and the money from working goes towards bringing up a family/running a household, i dont see a problem of sharing. i would have a savings account just incase for big expenses or kids education or stuff.
I'm married and we have separate accounts and a joint one.
The shared account would just be for expenses like groceries, bills, mortgage etc.
We don't have a joint one cos we cba setting it up and I don't see the point anyway. We don't have any notion of separation regarding money but we don't need a joint account to prove that.
With a joint account it's an arbitrary extra step of both paying into that account, and then paying bills from it. With separate accounts, we just split the bills roughly between the two separate accounts, and then pay other costs, such as food or going out or whatever, from whichever account has more money in it at that moment.
We have a joint account, her money is my money, my money is her money. I earn the most in the marriage but she deals with 90% of the money stuff cus I can't be bothered with it and she knows more about what we need. It's easier to keep track of if you have a shared account and one person as the "accountant" as it were. But there's lots of different ways to make it work.
