    Yes, until 15 years into the marriage or the cohabitation of unwed couples. Honesty and Trust are endangered species nowadays. They need protection too.

    I would! If I have a bank account with my significant other, I will still have a stash on the side that he doesn't know about in case things doesn't work out...

    Why not? Its my hard earned cash and I can do with it whatever I choose. LOL! If I choose to save it for me, then that's OK!!!

    Good question...

    Assuming that the couple are female and male, by all means, have a separate bank account due to human error and misunderstandings in order to avoid serious conflicts between the two. Especially for checking accounts, always have separate checking accounts due to the frequent unexpected need to write a check. Usually the female has more personal causes to spend money which chills the male when he reviews the account. Co-checking accounts has caused a lot of divorces.
