Can you even get a joint account at a Chinese bank? When I got married I tried to set one up, but the concept doesn't seem to exist here - accounts are only in one person's name.

There is a "strong" woman behind every "great" man!:) It is believed that 85% of the world's financial strings are in the hands of our deloved wives, mothers, sisters and aunts.

No problem setting up a joint account in the Bank of China!:)

In your case, you should have your own account (if they wouldn't let you open a joint account).

I don't know if I like you or love you, want you or need you, all I know is I love the feeling I get when I'm near you.

Who Manages the Money? - She does

It was quietly pointed out to me once in a Beijing restaurant that if you see the woman paying the bill, she is the wife; if the man is paying, he is the boyfriend.

My wife takes the lead role in handling our money, but  I take responsibility  as well. I also want to know where our money is going.

I think having a similar sense of responsibility for earning, saving, and spending money is important in a marriage. You just can't have one partner who is responsible and the other partner who is irresponsible.

I think most married couples in North America have joint accounts but some have separate accounts. I really don't understand couples who keep their money separate, either taking turns paying for different things, or having separate responsibility for different expenses. If you can't bring your money together, how can you bring your lives together?

sounds like you enjoy (or in denial) living under the strong fisted dictatorship of your wife
"It ain't no thang but a chicken wing."
