Some valuable suggestions here, but a couple of points: AmbChaser: I believe the actual quote is: Â "You will respect my authori-tay."

It's easy to get at her money you just have to set up her account as a joint account. However avoid at all costs making your account a joint account too. Otherwise she will be plotting ways to get at your money while you are trying to get at hers.
By the way, if anyone figures out a way to present that to their significant other and they actually buy it.......please let me know.
