I work and we have separate checking accounts. We split the bills down the middle, each put money in a savings account and pay the bills fairly evenly.

I keep track of the finances and tell him how much is available for spending.

Working mom here. We pay bills proportionate to our respective incomes. Checking accounts are separate.

We have joint accounts and generally spend what we want. Unless it's a car or a vacation or something huge like that, we don't really stick to a budget. We do each have a separate savings account, though, where stuff like birthday and Christmas money or just any extra that was specifically given to the individual goes.

I'm a SAHM and we follow a budget. We don't have much extra money for spending, so that makes it easy lol

Working mom, everything is joint. We pay all the bills together and then buy things as needed or saved for, no allowance, really.

Usually we split bill evenly, but right now I'm on maternity leave and waiting for my money to start being deposited into my bank account, so I really have none right now lol dh pays all of the bills at the moment until I start receiving my money, then I'll give him what I can afford.
