What kind of checking account do you have?
The truth is that finances are always going to be a part of your marriage and how you come to handle money will color many aspects of your married years.

For us, the decision to have a joint account was indicative of our decision to be unified in all aspects of our marriage.
For other, having separate accounts allows them to have more control over how money is spent.
Do you and your spouse have a joint account or choose to have separate accounts? Why?
