    You and foo are awesome. It's nice to see a bit of "old fashion" morals come from MEN.
    I would hope it's not old fashioned it's common sense.

    I know we are older than the average person on here but you can't run a household and move together in life to achieve your joint aims without sharing money appropriately

    What do you take me for? Of course I want my own bank account, I will be earning my own money and I will spend it how I please. I don't need anyone telling me what I can and can't spend, let alone my wife (if I ever have one). I would encourage the wife to have her own bank account too - it encourages both of us to have our own independence and relieves me of responsibility for any of her money.

    I'm not persuading anyone to change their minds if they want to share a joint bank account with their wife. But sure, if you want the ***** to clean out all your savings so she can spend it on some vanity project or going out drinking/clubbing/holidaying with her girlfriends, by all means go ahead. She'll find a way to twist it to blame you for her own mistakes anyway.

    I'm 40 and recently remarried.

    I run my own business, she has a job as a teacher. I own the house, 2 cars and have 4 kids from a previous marriage.

    We don't have any joint accounts and no plans on doing so. I pay for everything and she keeps what she earns for herself, When she suggests sharing some of the bills, I tell her she can try asking again when she earns around 50% of what I do.

    I'm happy with the arrangement and have no plans on changing it,

    If you are reluctant to share your wealth... maybe marriage should not be in your mind.

    Both for things such as bills, food etc. Individual for savings and buying our own things. I'm only 17 so I might change my mind once I'm married.

    Sounds perfect.
