I find most of the couples are working and earning. And still somebody make extra money when they travel or making overtime. So do you share the exact earnings to your spouse.. I always share my monthly income openly and the additional income i keep it secretely and used at occasional times as i am the only member earning in my family.. What about you my friend

I hold the money which he budgeted for each month from his salary. We always have a budget list for each month for all the necessities. The rest, he keeps in the bank and for his allowance. My money is my money and he never asked for it. I have the freedom what to do with my money. Have a nice day!

My money is my husband's and my husband's money is mine. We only have one money and we don't hide anything from each other. I am the one handling the money of the house. He is giving all his salary less the gas expenses to me. Of course he is keeping some if he needs to buy some items of his desire but he never keeps this as secret to me and it is no big deal to me either. I am also earning and my husband do not even check about my earning. He trusts me just as much as I trust him because we know each other fully well.
