If you’re married, do you share finances?

When people get married, they often end up merging a lot of things — kitchen stuff, books, families, finances.

Though that last one seems to be changing, at least somewhat.

Just 11% of Gen Xers and 13% of baby boomers keep their finances separate from their spouse or partner, according to a survey Bank of America did last year. By contrast, 28% of millennials do.

So we’re curious: if you’re married, how do you and your spouse deal with finances? Do you have joint everything? Separate everything? Some joint, some separate? How did you decide what you wanted to do? How’s it working?

Let us know! Fill out the form below — and let us know your age range, or what generation you’re a part of, too — and one of our reporters may be in touch for a Marketplace story.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
