Lynn + I Still Have Separate Checking Accounts – Is That Weird?

You know what’s funny, my wife and I have been married for going on 14 years and we still don’t have a joint checking account. Why? No real reason except for inertia and the fact getting a new account is a hassle and you need a mandatory deposit to open a new account.

Today we had the discussion about opening a joint account. Lynn and I however handle banking totally differently. She likes a register and I just use the ATM balance as a guide and if something looks askew I’ll double check it with my statement or if it’s really messed up, I’ll call my credit union.

As things are now, it does cause a problem when I deposit money into Lynn’s account and if she’s not with me they scratch out the balance. When I take the receipt home, she then has to call to get the total.

Our marriage is in good shape, the best it’s ever been but its funny the things you overlook and never get done.

What about you? Do you have any little things that would seem to other that are weird, even if you’re married?
