Yesterday, a colleague of mine, who is married and shares a very strong bond with her DH told me that she has a separate bank account which is a secret from her DH. She told me that she puts her savings into that account every now and then. I was a bit confused as she is the one who shares a beautiful equation with her DH and both of them share expenses for the household. What is then a need to have a secret account? She says it is for her security. Is this normal?
