Is taking a partner's money without permission stealing
• Preston, England
@augusta123 or the husband taking the wife's money - if it is not done with mutual consent and shared permission it is theft. The partner may have plans or needs for the money that just taking it could ruin and the couple could plunge into debt from random spending - whether the married couple are poor or multi-millionaires, simply taking money from the other at will is sure to cause trouble, both emotionally and financially

Regardless of who the person is you have to ask permission before going into someone's wallet to take money out of it. So, taking money from the wallet of your husband, wife, etc. and not saying anything is wrong and it is stealing, even though his/her money is your money...
It all depends upon the understanding between family. If the family has a good understanding between them then it won't be an issue but in a low understanding family if you did it parents may or may not say anything to you but they will open their spy nature for you. To be in a perfect sentence yes it will be termed as stealing if you took money without permission..and this stealing will only feel good if you say them that "I have taken this much amount from you" immediately after you took money from their wallet. That will put a good impression.

It probably depends on the couple. Some couples keep their finances separate and I think violating that could be argued as stealing. However, my husband and keep our finances linked. Overspending would be a betrayal of trust, but it wouldn't be stealing.
When the married couple thinks “it's our money”..then that won't be a issue.there should be mutually understanding between couple how they manage family financially .if they feel it's your money my money then without permission taking money it's lead to huge problems.
