Married Money From Decorno

I was catching up on some blog reading and came across Decorno's question(s) to readers asking married couples how they handle their money. I love reading the answers! I'm so nosy, and I'm always curious about the answer to this question myself for no other reason really than to know what works (and doesn't work) for other people. Merging finances can be a complicated and messy process for some couples and for others no trouble at all. In both cases, it's interesting to me to read how couples handle their money. I thought it would only be fair if I answered the question too. We have joint everything except my business checking account. We save a pre-set amount each month, then pay bills, then use the rest for spending money. We talk about all our expenses every month, but I do the actual bill paying. This system works well for us. Head over to Decorno to read how other couples handle their money.
