Money is the number one cause of divorce so being on the same page financially is critical 😀👍

My husband and I combined our bank accounts after 10 years of marriage. I regret not doing it sooner because we work great as a team. I create our budget each paycheck and text it to my husband. We’re both big spenders but have goals we want to accomplish so we’ve been recently saving like crazy.

I learned nothing from this video.

I would do it the exact opposite way. Have each your own checking and savings account (with current interest rates you don’t need a savings account but whatever). And put a set amount per month to the one shared account where you pay everything from that you do both like rent/mortgage, groceries, investments, new dishwasher, date nights etc. If you have extra money in the shared account you can either share it at the end of the year or invest more. If you’re short in that account you know you’ll have to increase the monthly input.

Just so you don't waste 3 minutes on the video, here's a summary:

Direct deposits into one account, and split the funds between paying bills, savings, and discretionary spending for each spouse.

Asking financial advice on the internet is probably a bad idea...
