Everything combined was a recipe for disaster in marriage #1. Live and learn. In marriage #2, I pay the house, utilities and my bills, she buys groceries and pays her bills. Separate accounts, credit cards, everything. It's worked for 20 years so far and there is no fighting about money or who spent what. Of course, major purchases (vehicles, home improvements, vacations, etc.) are always discussed in advance. But day-to-day? Pay as you go, no worries or nonsense over "You bought a new fishing rod!" or that kind of stuff.
