After the wedding, should you marry your money in a joint account? Here are 3 approaches

I say you should NOT marry money but I’d add another piece of advice. If you (or your wife) inherits money, that should be kept separately as well. Say if you take an inheritance of 1m and buy a house with that money, your wife is entitled to half the value after divorce. Instead it’s better to get the mortgage and make the payments with the inheritance if needed, that way you only lose half of the equity built up.
