Out of curiosity those with two accounts, are both names on both accounts? I've seen it done both ways. We did because it makes it easier if something happens to one of us. The other school of thought is not to so she can't clean you out if something goes south.
You do know "she" could sign one of your checks "Mr. Potato head" and the bank would cash it?.....
