Real Life On A Budget

Married Checking Accounts

When you get married make sure you do this to set you and your spouse for financial success!

If you do this and find yourself still fighting too much with your spouse about money, check out my post on how to create a win-win scenario!

    I have been married for 18 years (I am only 35) and you should see the looks when I tell people we have always had one and only one joint checking account! you would think I had two heads!

    I know the site is new but do you plan to do anything aimed more at single people?

  • We kept separate accounts for the longest time… it was really hard to keep on the same page. Once we opened a joint checking account it made things quite a bit easier. Less stress. Less money arguments.

  • Good stuff! I am new to Dave Ramsey, and found Rachel to be a good source of info as well. I like all the little videos she does.

    My husband and I have had one account since we got married 6 1/2 years ago… it definitely works – as long as you have those discussions each month!nRachel – side note… where did you get that beautiful necklace? 🙂 Maybe it can be in next month’s budget, haha. 🙂
