Joint of course. You can have another separate account but should have a joint account as well.

For married couples, I think it is but normal to have a joint account.

Joint account of course but they can also have other separate bank accounts aside from their joint account.

Joint account.

They should have joint account. All withdrawals are monitored. That is one way of securing your kids future.

It depends on the couple preference. They can actually discuss about their finances and how to go about it.

Separate bank accounts just in case.... LOL.

I believe they should because if you can't be open about finances, the relationship will never work.

I agree. It's still important to feel independent especially for the women.

They should have both.

It's better to have both because it's important that each one is also an individual independent of each other.

Yes, I need my own money to buy the things I want without needing to consult my husband.

This is true. So many women are so dependent on their husband that they can't leave the marriage because of this.

Married couples should have a joint account so they can track the household expenses.

We have a joint account but we also have our own separate savings. We both agreed to that.

It depends on your arrangement. I'm open to joint accounts but I still need my own money for myself too.

You should have separate personal money. Our joint account is for the family expenses.
