I'm getting married this year and people have offered a wide range of advice when it comes to managing finances as a couple. My parents have always just had one, shared account, but from what I hear, everyone does it a little bit differently.

I would also like to note that the book The Surrendered Wife suggests that you share one account. The author even goes as far to say that the man should do the budgeting and pay the bills.

So, RPW, how do you manage your accounts? What works for you? What are the pros and cons? No right or wrong answers...just what makes sense for you.

Edit: Added an additional thought
