Holy cr.p! Just read this to my hubby and he is just as astounded as I am! We have joint accounts. All hubby's pay goes into that account to pay bills and rent etc and all my pay goes into our joint savings account. We get $50 each per week into separate accounts for fun money - clothes, going out, presents for birthdays/Xmas (for each other). This will continue when I go on maternity. All my leave pay will go into savings and then when that runs out any benefit money I claim will go into savings. We will continue to live on hubby's wage.
