how do you married Fools handle the bills? Do you borrow from each other, transfer funds to different accounts?
=====*=====

Mike,

I have budgeted all the bills. I set an amount that Mary transfers to my account, I then pay all the bills out of my checking account.

This is done because:

o - My wife and I agreed that this works for us

o - She'd rather hand it off to me than deal with it

o - It's very easy to track it this way

o - Transferring the funds between our accounts is free and instanteous at our bank.

Aaron
