Lol, no. I'm not a child, I don't have to ask to access our money.

 Nope.  I don't expect him to explain small amounts either.

I don't ask him for money....I just tell him I need this much for this and I expect him to fork it over.  He knows I spend it on things we need and not stuff we don't.  When we go shopping for things we want I just stick it in the cart and he pays for it.  He sees it so I don't need to explain it.

 No, I'm a SAHM and I never ask for money. I'm not a child.

 No, I just say I need money. He hands me his wallet.

 I always earned my own money. Never asked for any, but would maybe clear large purchases with him first, when I was married.

I don't think I HAVE to explain it, but I do. Like I'll just tell him straight out "I want x amount for this"
