I don’t know…maybe we’re old school when it comes to this…maybe not…but Tim and I have joint everything.
Well, let’s clarify. Not *everything* per se, but everything when it comes to one of the hot button marriage topics: MONEY/Finances/Passwords.
Good thing, actually, since, um…Kellan doesn’t exactly pay me in cold, hard cash money every two weeks for my never ending services. If I had my own personal bank account, it would currently show a big, fat ZERO.
This jointness doesn’t end with accounts that we can access at any point.
We also know each other’s passwords.
Well, everything important.
I honestly have no desire to know passwords for websites that I’ll rarely use…thank you, password manager.
And if we don’t know one?
If neither of us know it?
Anyway, nothing is secret.
Well, to my knowledge, anyway.
Everything is out there – willingly, I should add.
I’m guessing that this kind of transparency is probably not the norm and I’m sure some of you are like, “OMG. GET YOUR OWN. HIDE THINGS. SQUIRREL THEM AWAY!”
And if I don’t?
Then…what? I’ll end up living in a cardboard box in the rare, off chance that I decided to go find another sugar daddy (read: sarcasm) or he found himself a sugar mama (you never know…again: sarcasm)?
It’s not like Tim would be all, “sucks to be you” and leave me hanging with not a penny to my name.
I mean…I do have pennies…so I guess that’s technically not a true statement…I digress.
Yes, it is always a risk to be the one without a “job” that pays in something other than spit up, giggles and eventually, Monopoly money. It was a risk I was willing to take, mostly because it doesn’t really feel all that risky to me.
I mean, I KNOW ALL.
Let’s just be honest, here.
I’m the boss.
Tim may be in charge at work but oooooh buddy. Once he’s home?
(I’m kidding, honey. We’re total equals…once you can tell me where the new diaper location is and what brand of bread to buy at the store)
Plus, he would never do that to me – leave me out, shivering in the cold without a dollar to my name.
Plus I have some *really, really* cute collateral.
So, I think the whole point here is that I win.
