How should my husband and I set up our bank account(s) if we have a blended family?

I totally understand your frustration/concern. I would recommend that you two have a conversation. Even though it going to be diffcult. I would rather you both be in agreement. If you two are not on the same page it could cause other problems in your relationship. Once you discuss both sides, then you should create a plan. Here is an article I wrote about that same issue.
