Nancy, I've been a lurker on this board for quite a while now and felt to need to speak up for a fellow Virginian. I think you're being really hard on this guy for no reason, slander bordering on attack. Completely out of character for you.

Independent accounts demonstrate a lack of trust in each other. People who are in a truly happy marriage don't need separate accounts, because they absolutely trust each other always. He went into great detail about how only marriage partners who distrusted each other would get a separate credit card account.

According to Eric's post above he never made a single post about trust and separate accounts. I took the time to read back over all of his posts and he never once mentioned anything about trust or distrust relating to credit accounts.

I know each couple has to work out their own system, but sometimes it's nice if they could remember that what works for them might not be the best solution for other people, who might be in just as happy a marriage as themselves.

Again, you are making things up and even being a bit hypocritical with this one as it appears that you are the one not respecting Eric's opinion on the tropic and pushing your own on him. Where has Eric (VtAlumni) ever posted that he didn't respect others opinions on this topic. He's actually gone out of his way to explain that he does. read his following posts (his words from this thread):

Point is to find what you feel most secure with.

btw, I'm not against credit cards or DW or I having a seperate one. We just never saw a need for it. I can respect others opinins of thinking it is a smart or convinient thing to have.
