Who keeps the money in marriage for budgeting purposes?

I'm just wondering what other people think about this? There are issues in marriage regarding who should keep all the income that a wife and a husband have? The usual is the wife but there are husbands who dont remit their income to their wife what do you think about this?

this is funny. i am the wife but i don't keep the budget. it would be a disaster if i do. what hubby and i did was to allocate our earnings. i pay for everything the house needs - grocery, maid's salary, hubby's food budget, electric bill and phone bill. hubby pays for the car, house rent, water bill and saves for the rainy day. other things i get to buy because i sell online. we trust each other. it will kill me if i have to budget because i tend to move things around.
