Keeping their money affairs separate, with a shared bill for fixed expenses: it turned out to be ideal for Lisa and her husband.
“I was never concerned with money matters. My husband is quite old-fashioned, he was the breadwinner for a long time and also very frugal by nature. In recent years I was home a lot with the children. So my husband paid and therefore determined the most. A friend encouraged me to become more financially independent and it’s going pretty well.

Since this year we have a shared bill for groceries and fixed costs, we keep the rest separate. Now I can save up for fun trips – my husband doesn’t like that, he prefers to stay at home – and can save his money for when the apocalypse comes.”
