My late husband and I worked our accounts this way . We also never argued about money but I think we lacked a certain financial intimacy that comes from throwing your money together .
I think maybe that's what throws my SIL off too. I also don't know how to describe this "financial intimacy" but sort of know what you are referring to.

I did inherit, and without a second thought, dumped that money into our joint brokerage account. We've been together for more than thirty years, have shared everything from day one and always will. It's hard for me to even fathom doing it differently.
