I'm sorry you've met with such rudeness here. I originally set this board up with the intention it would be a positive place for engaged people to exchange ideas. I'm very annoyed that someone has come in here spouting such negativity.

I too met with much negativity before and even shortly after my marriage. On many of the boards here I was told to go ahead and start filing the divorce papers. Why? Because my husband and I haven't, and probably never will, completely combine our finances. Funny, isn't it--my husband and I see totally eye-to-eye on finances (that's why I couldn't give you any help--no experience!) and both completely agree on our financial arrangement, yet because we're not doing things the way a few people think *all* people should, we're doomed!

I'm sure you're fiance is a great guy and you've made the right decision. My husband is great, too. I do at times wish he were a bit neater and more organized, but we can work that out. :-)

BTW, do you know about the Penalty Box? Go to a post of Jeff's, and hit the frowny face up by the subject line. You'll never have to see his posts again. And I agree--his behaviour is neither Christian nor that of a happy, well-adjusted person.

Good luck!

happily married despite the facts that she and DH have separate checking accounts and neither of us are religious
