Hey Shannon! Relationship Question for December 10, 2013

"Hey Shannon, I have been with my fiancé‰ for 5 years and we are getting married this month. When we met he had major debt, and liked to spend money on ridiculous things he couldn't afford. After a year of dating me he realized things needed to change and he got his act together. He is now debt free and I am very proud of him. However, I think we should continue to have separate checking accounts and combine just our savings account. He wants to combine everything once we are married. Am I wrong to want to keep things separate? What should I do?"
