The idea of wives controlling most of the family's money does not work for everyone.

"This worked for me. Previously had relationships that our money were separate. Trust issues with that money caused many arguments, leading to break-ups. Now salaries 80% (wife) and 20% for me (own expenses like above). Simple math but it makes for humble and happy life."

"I'm sure when people got married they made their vows to share everything, Life in a relationship is not a one way street. We are living in the 21st century...."
