Marital separation and dating

But guess what…you should know all of this ahead of time. When you get married, you are now considered a legal partnership in almost every state. Just because you keep your finances separate doesn’t mean that creditors won’t come after your money as well.

Just because Stan and Mary do it doesn’t mean we all should. I can understand why retired widowers who get remarried may decide to keep things separate.

Several – if not most – of the married couples I know who keep separate finances have at least one member of the partnership who is divorced.

Look, I understand that they may have gone through some traumatic times.

They may not be able to buy the newest gadget, go to the big game, or go on that hunting trip because it wasn’t in the family budget.
