    i'm way too cynical for that, one always needs complete independence because you never know when an ally becomes an enemy.
    imagine if they took your money and fled lmao

    But that doesnt mean i won't contribute to bills and stuff. I just want to be incharge of my own earnings... nothing wrong with that is there?
    No, there isn't anything wrong with it bc.. I guess it's up to you.- I understand we all prefer different things.

    Separate and joint.

    Separate for ourselves, joint for things that are shared between us.

    But idk...it may not be that simple one day, who knows

    Both, the joint account would be for the bills, holidays, food etc. basically everything that both effects us. We would also have individual accounts which wage/salary gets paided in and then anything after the deductions made to the joint then anything left is spend on what ever

    xobeauty hello my fellow carib
    and it depends on the pros and cons of both single and joint accounts
    I've not looked into either but I just know of some basic stuff...I think

    If you have your own account do you need to sign prenup? :erm:

    Wouldn't give up my individual bank account but neither do I object to a joint account for household stuff.

    I live with my boyfriend and we've a joint account, but still have separate individual accounts. Earnings go into the individual accounts and we each transfer a set amount into the joint account every month and use that to pay for rent / food / bills / shared stuff etc.
    The rest stays in our individual accounts for us to do with as we please.

    Edit: I'm 21.

    I have no intention of ever getting married but if I did, I would have a joint account for, say, bills but definitely have a separate bank account too with most of my money in it. I'm not prepared to go through what my mum has gone through with my dad, regarding bank accounts and hard-earned money disappearing all the time, never to return :nope:

    Am 27 btw

    If you entered the marriage with significant assets then there is an argument for a prenup, although I'm not sure how much UK courts actually take notice of them. I'm sure a law student would be able to clarify. But fundamentally, having a separate account will not stop one party in a divorce from having to pay a settlement to the other, no.

    Not happening in my marriage. See neomasculinity vs, the perils of female financial autonomy for reference. Pragmatic sustainability ftw :yy:
