I'm no good at accounting, and I think we'd end up with a mess if I did the day-to-day finance managing. I'm happy to leave that stuff up to my guy, but we do go over it and discuss it. I feel that, as long as both parties are comfortable with the way it's handled, there shouldn't be a problem. I think there should be a shared discussion of what's going on, moneywise, but I don't think both parties need to be involved in balancing the accounts and that sort of thing.
