JOINT ACCOUNT FOR COUPLES, YES, NO, RED FLAG

My coworker who has been married for four months asked me this question about a week ago.
"If you were married,would you have a joint account with your spouse?"
Well to respond to that, the only reason why i would have a joint account with my spouse is to have the account to pay bills and run the household such as buy the kids clothes, fix broken stuff and many other household expense. I am a firm believer of being a spouse that complements and not just completes.
Before marriage we both ran separate accounts and managed the money separately. Getting married should not mean that your money gets married too, you dont have to lose your sense of individuality, it means that you and your spouse can create a wholesome relationship. Money can be a problem too, too much of it and too little of it can bring about both jealousy and self esteem problems.
I also advice young couples not to consolidate their studnt loans from college together for example, Susan married Joe, she went to Stanford University and owes over $65000 in loans while Joe went to Cal State East Bay and owes $1500 in student loans, they got married and lump their loans together and pay it off. There is nothing wrong with that, personally  i will  not do it, your degree is in your name and my degree is in my name so answer your father's name and pay off your student loans. Enough said.

EVERYBODY HATES MONDAYS

  i-hate-mondays  Its Sunday night and  most people dread the beginning of a new week starting on Monday. Waking up early in the morning to begin the weekly commute to a forty hour week job or those early morning lab classes that begin before eight o clock and other classes  for the rest of the day. To most people that is the reason why  Monday is hated and it is something I am aware of but I just found out that “Mondays” actually means something else. Monday actually means a Black man as in from African or African American descent. It is used when black men are around people of other races, it may be used in a derogatory form so that the black man doesn’t know they are talking about him.
“ I just hate Mondays”
It may also something or someone you hate with a passion
“I really dislike the cab driver, he is such a really bad Monday”
So I can be somewhere and talk about a nice looking African man calling him a Monday and he wont know about it.After reading this new meaning of Monday from the source , I began to look at the “hating Monday” differently so when next you hear “Everybody hates Mondays”  is it figurative or literal? or am I just having a case of the Mondays. Have a great Monday and a blessed week
