Is that going to effect how you pay mortgage/bills etc.? In my sitch our finances have always been seperate except for joint credit line and credit card. We have our own chequing and savings accounts. We have a set bills/expenses that we each pay, although those do overlap sometimes (ie. gas for the car or groceries), so far that hasn't changed.

I guess what I'm getting at is I'm wondering how big a deal it is if you now have seperate accounts? Is she just trying to restore her independance? I'm assuming if you did/do have shared expenses now your going to need to discuss how money will be transfered to cover said expenses.
