Readers say married people should not operate joint accounts

Less than 45% believe that couples should save money together.

A couple fights over money.

Couples who have gone really deep in love to the point of marriage will be more familiar with the way money works to keep a union afloat.

To live together as family with their kids, money is needed for everything – food, cloths, bills, transportation and all the miscellaneous expenses that come with daily family life.

So to meet all these needs, wouldn’t it be cool for spouses to join forces and keep their money in a joint account?

According to majority of Pulse readers, the answer to that is NO.

In an opinion poll published recently, 58.8% say they wouldn’t save money in an account eith their spouses because they do not trust them like that.

Only 41.2% believe that couples should save money together because they are one anyway.

On the discussion of money in relationships, there are five things that must compulsorily be discussed by every couple, and those are financial compatibility, debts, payment of bills, financial goals and whether or not to have a joint account.
