Growing up, the only thing I remember my parents fighting about was money.
In the spring Travis and I decided to merge our finances. Sharing a household, bills and day-to-day living have gotten a lot easier since doing so. Every couple is different and I understand that some prefer to keep their bank accounts seperate, but for us it made budgeting a lot easier and in a weird way made me feel more like he was my partner. Now both of us can worry about the account balance 🙂
