J and I keep separate accounts, but he pays the rent and I pay the bills. I subtract half the bills from my portion of the rent and pay that to him. We keep talking about getting a joint account for savings/emergencies, but it's something we keep forgetting to do. He's more financially responsible than I am, but by me managing the bills I'm learning by his example.
