    Separate + joint. I prefer having my own keycard but our money is technically 'combined'.

    For the first 6 or so years we had separate accounts as we were both working, and we just paid half of all costs each.

    When our son was 1, my partner stopped working completely for 18 months to focus on finishing his degree. that coincided with selling our old unit and buying this house, so we just set up new joint bank accounts with the new mortgage.

    We probably both liked separate bank accounts, but it wasn't practical when he had nil income. Now we are both working again, but we have just left them joint.

    Separate. Always have, always will. Unless I become a SAHM which is unlikely.

    Joint plus our own from when we were single. Not much money in those except about $60 every month. We use that for individual spending. But everything is joint. Like salary and mortgage etc etc.

    We have both, our pays are put into our seperate accounts, from there we transfer the money need for x,y,z bill etc. Into our joint account, this is the account that all our expenses, bills etc. come from. What ever is left in our bank accounts is our own savings/play money.
