Yes, on the assumption that SWMBO and I are normal adults.

We each have a personal bank account (termed our individual slush funds) into which we divert a small portion of our joint income from our joint account. What we spend it on thereafter has absolutely nothing to do with the other so there's no sense of guilt at purchasing what the other might regard as a frippery.
