Just curious how many wives here ""pinch"" a part of hubby's salary every month under the disguise of grocery shopping etc only it goes to your secret savings account/ safety deposit etc & if God Forbid you got divorced you would have secret extra cushion of ""stash" money he did not know about.


Thoughs? Is it okay to do this or idiotic not to?

ps: I dont know how but I wish I could edit my post to say do you secretly save/stash what is supposed to be hubby's income not marital savings

No. All our accounts are joint accounts and I'm in charge of all of our finances. What other people do with their money is their business.

I have never had shared-only finances. We always had separate money + joint money.

It's hard to see how saving up a little grocery money could add up to anything worth getting upset about, if you are a millionare. Say $20 a week, for 5 years? That's $1200.

If my partner felt they needed a $1200 cushion to feel safe, I'd probably just give it to them. Maybe we could each have one.

Kikiki no one is answering this question so far lets take a minimum wage couple. Say as a woman you stash 100bucks more every month or to be more politically correct steal 100bucks monthly & say you got divorced after 30 years you would have 36,000 bucks more in your secret stash plus interest.
