It's becoming more and more popular these days for married couples to keep their money separate in different bank accounts. For the people who aren't married, which would you prefer when/if you are married? Would you prefer joint accounts, or to keep your money separate? Why and why not?
For those of you who are married, how do you handle your money as a couple? In separate accounts or a joint account. Why and why not?

In my opinion marriage as a cooperative thing. It's no longer about both of you individually, but together as a team. When I think about making big monetary decisions such as "should we buy a house?" or "what kind of car do we need?" it makes more sense to think of it in terms of how much money /we/ have instead of how much each can contribute.
So, a single bank account would be good in my opinion.0
