Looking for book or website recommendations on combining finances after marriage. Or your thoughts and tips here. I am getting married this summer and have begin to discuss combining accounts with my fiancee. We currently have a shared checking account from which we pay combined monthly bills. We want to know how much more we combine after marriage.

We are open with each other about our current outside expenses: credit cards, mortgage, student loans, etc. Should we have one account from which all our expenses come? Should we keep separate accounts for personal expenses? How much should we put in those separate accounts versus the combined account? I am hoping some book will help, but I'm sure that your experiences will be invaluable too!
