So FI and I are going to be joining accounts soon either right before the wedding or right after.
Now.. FI is super smart with his money. He's really budget minded and knows what purchases to make and when. Just overall really money smart.
Me on the other hand.. I had to learn the hard way. We'll just say that. But, I've busted my butt for the money I earn. I'm smart, but I like to spend, I like to shop.
So... I'm feeling a little anxious about sharing accounts. It's not something I disagree with, and it makes sense to share them. But.. it makes me really anxious. Like I almost feel like I'm 'losing' my savings and money. Or like I'm 'losing' my financial freedom. I'm not sure why I feel like this, I trust FI completely, especially with money. But - I'm just really anxious about this.
Any one have any advice? Thoughts? How did you feel about joining account (if you joined accounts)?
