When my husband and I got married we combined our two separate lives into one. We were DINKs (Dual Income No Kids) with stable jobs, nice salaries, and no credit card debt. Neither of us had any financial skeletons, dirty money secrets or made any huge money mistakes in our past single lives. To me, it all looked like smooth sailing from here on out. If anything, combining our financial lives would make everything easier. After all, two salaries are better than one, right?
