Separate or Joint Bank Account Debate

Savvy Community: Married With Separate or Joint Accounts?

birdsflyinghigh recently asked a question that runs through most soon-to-be-brides minds in the Savvy Q and A group:

For those married woman out there, do you have separate or joint bank accounts? Getting married soon and curious what most do?

While 38 percent of SavvySugar readers say they wouldn't feel comfortable sharing joint checking with their boyfriends, many couples — married, or unmarried — do combine their finances. In my mind, talking about the benefits and consequences and setting shared goals are some of the most important factors of starting out an official union on the right foot. What's your take on the separate or joint after marriage debate?
