Sadly, yes. My husband can always find some emergency that NEEDS to be paid for, and if he knew I had a lot of room on the card it would be difficult to persuade him that I just want that lot of room to sit there and not be used... unless I lose my job and we have no e-fund, for example.

Aranknitter, I thought you guys were doing the "financial separation" thing, where your money is kept separate, and you both chip in for stuff like rent/mortgage, food, kid expenses, etc?

Even if you aren't, if *you* have three cards, it doesn't mean *he* has three cards. I am normally of the "You're married, it all belongs to both of you now" school, but until your DH shows himself to be trustworthy, I think your credit and his credit should not commingle in unholy congress. ;-)
