    This post makes me so happy for you! It is so nice to hear how marriages can really be strengthened when two people trust each other enough to go all in. I am sure you will see your relationship grow and grow because of the hard work you have done! Congratulations!

    That's really very rewarding and you deserved that. I know how it feels to be in that situation. Congratulations and I hope you and your hubby get to save more on that account. :)

    I thought the same way as you. I am married but have my own job and own separate credit cards and I always assumed "I'm going to do whatever I want with my own money." Unfortunately, what I wanted to do with my money was spend frivolously and rack up credit card debt. I told myself that because it was my own money, it was my own problem and my husband didn't need to know about it and I would take care of it myself. Well, in the midst of myself trying to get my own debt under control, the subject came up with my husband. And even though it was my own debt, under my own name, he was very upset. He explained to me that even though I am carrying this under my name it affects both of us. Whether that means that our credit scores will be bad or large sums of my money will have to be used to pay off my credit cards rather than put in our future kids college savings. Just something to think about.

    Hey, I just found your blog and love it. My soon to be husband and I also have split accounts. We opened a joint account for only shared bills, and have our own personal accounts for the fun stuff. It helps use with the stress that can happen to some couples, especially since I have a lot of debt from school loans. Its hard to control your debt, especially being a freelance artist. Congrats on the great reward!
