well ladies and gentlemen, do you or dont you have a secret fund your better half doesnt know about?
Aside from whatever miscellaneous cash I have at hand in my wallet, no.
I play blackjack and keep my bankroll in a shoe box. Many years ago my wife opened the shoe box.. (it had been a good couple of years) That took some explaining.
I still have a stash, but she doesn't ask about it and I don't mention it.
i work for the state of texas.... the only extra cash i have are the pennies and nickels i find and pick up in parking lots
My wife knows about the money, she has forgotten about it though.
I keep some cash in the safe, not really a stash just some cash I always keep around the house.
My stash the wife knows about but doesn't bother is gold and silver. Most of it picked up at garage sales for cheap.
Been married 42 years. First paycheck I got, I handed over to the wife (my dad did the same in our family). Has worked out well since 1969. She's good at keeping track of "stuff." I do the family investing, she pays the bills. Works for us.
Anyway, that's why God made ATM cards. Need money, just plug that baby in the slot!
I have my money, she has her money, and we have our money. As long as the bills are paid and food is on the table (always) we don't bug each other about it.
No. My wife and I own our own business. She keeps the books (magnificently, I might add...) and I lift objects and have a hunk of raw meat thown at me twice a day. It has worked great for twenty years. Now, I do play in a bar band and she trains horses/riders and that cash is ours to play with absolute impunity, hookers and blow notwithstanding... HH
I keep as little as I can in any bank since the interest rates are so low. I never let my X know how much money I had in any bank or in cash,,,, It was a good decision to do, especially when I filed for Divorce.
Now days no one knows what I have especially my live in GF, cash in the safe and I have the only combination or cash in my pocket.
No. Never have felt the need to.
No secret funds, but we do have separate accounts.
We basically split the bills, she is responsible for some and I am responsible for some. As long as those bills get paid, we both fund the retirement accounts, then we spend as we please. It's worked great for the 3 years we've been married so far.
No. But neither one of us questions what the other spends on.
We keep everything separate. Just easier.
The proper question would be, how many of you have a secret fund you think your better half doesn't know about?
My wife and I are the same way.
But, when I started playing cards I started with a small bankroll and would not use the household money for blackjack.
So I methodically built the bankroll as winnings allowed it. That is how I ended up with my stash. My wife just didn't know how it had grown until she opened the shoebox.
I have a friend with a stash large enough that he leaves it in a casino safe deposit box.
I have a couple of stashes around the house she knows about and it is money she can take if she needs it. I have a couple of others that she does not know about but they aren't really hidden. One is in a vase on a shelf. I am not hiding it from her per se, just not telling her about it. It is just a bit of emergency cash in case we find something we want but the place doesn't take checks or cards.
Ain't that like hiding money from yourself.
Same here. I want a gun etc.. I buy it. She has Ups and FedEx stopping at the house daily. Gonna have to get those guys a friggen Xmas card since I know them by name and how the family is doing...

I'm not hating, but I am going to say. I have/had 3 sets of friends who were married with separate accounts. None lasted 5 years. Merging the $$$ is what real commitment is about. Monogamy is easy compared to that.
