Re: Financial Deal Breakers

It's interesting how financial compatibility is such a big deal in relationships these days.

Women in the U.S. couldn't open bank accounts without a male co-signer until 1974, so to me, it makes sense that the issue of financial compatibility wouldn't start bubbling up until a while after that.

Sorry, gotta call B.S. on that; my grandmother was widowed during WWII and opened many bank accounts, and started several businesses on her own before she ultimately got remarried in the late 1960.  Then there was my grandmother's sister, never married, had several bank account dating back to the depression.

Re: Financial Deal Breakers

The equal credit opportunities act of 1974 ensured single, divorced and widowed women had the right to get bank accounts without a male cosigner. It also ensured women could get credit cards in their own name.

 

There was no law that said a bank could not provide women with bank accounts prior to this time. They just were not required to do so without cosign.
