Hey supermoms!

Today we’re diving into a hot topic that every married couple has to navigate – money and finances.

Specifically, whether or not to combine incomes and bank accounts once you tie the knot.

Money Options Post-Marraige

There are lots of different perspectives on this.

  • Combine it All: Some firmly believe that when you marry your lives become one, so all assets should be pooled together into joint accounts. The old saying “what’s mine is yours and what’s yours is mine.”
  • Shared Expenses Only: Others prefer to keep things more separate – having individual accounts, contributing set amounts to shared expenses, but largely maintaining financial independence.
  • Keep your own Kitty Bank: Independent women need their own independent money, no?

It’s an personal decision that couples have to make based on their values, attitudes about money, and what works best for their situation.
