On one hand financial trust is so necessary for any
marriage to remain healthy and free of toxicity; and
on the other hand, having a joint account with a
partner has its own benefits and when partners
choose to pool their financial resources in one
place, the three wonderful possibilities below
become open to them…
1. Shared goals are achieved°°
Couples are meant to help each other grow, and
they are expected to also grow together.
A joint bank account could play a vital role in
achieving those combined goals because,
obviously, the money is more and can be used for
the greater good of the family – new home, new

When couples choose to operate a joint account,
each spouse can see what the other is spending,
which means each of them would be more
accountable than if they had separate accounts.
3. Crisis management**
Couples who have merged bank accounts are also
more likely to survive a disaster or temporary
downturn in fortune.
4. Reflects a great marriage**
Logically, couples who feel comfortable agreeing to
a joint account trust each other than those who
would never even consider it.
It is also a pointer to the likelihood that both
partners are committed to achieving goals
together, and truly merging every facet of their
lives as marriage should really be.
When spouses bat no eyelid before saying yes to a
joint account, it is very much a sign of a healthy
union, where trust and commitment are at their
