I saw this in another community and wanted to get your take on it.
(not verbatim but from my memory):
My husband has one credit card, and I have one as well (separately). He insists we put everything on one card. I have nothing to hide, I just feel it is a good thing to establish credit long term with a credit card company. I have had my credit card since 1999, and he has had his a few years. I see nothing wrong with putting them together, but he wants to transfer both balances to a new card and I want to put it all on mine since there is a history there (and low interest rate-in the case a balance is carried over into the next month. We pay them off each month most of the time, BTW). Am I wrong to think this way? I have already expressed how I feel about it to no avail. BTW he isn't the best with spending money. Tends to "charge things" excessively and we are broke each month after paying ALL the bills! Help!
I think they should keep them separate, or put it on her card, personally.
