 I manage all the finances. I have a mommy planner that I use. We donlt use a checkbook. I don't even know where the checkbook is, lol! Oh and I give dh an allowance so he is not tempted to go and use his debit card for stupid stuff.

My husband pays the bills.  He has everything set up in excel.  We sit down together once a week to write in all our purchases and see where we are.

He makes the money, I manage it.  I know how much we have at all times, he just asks if we can afford this and that.

My husband deals with all the finances.  They stress me out to no end, plus I'm bipolar, and one of the symptoms of mania is spending money like crazy, so just to be on the safe side, I let him keep all the money, and when I need some, I'll tell him so, and what for.

I handle all the bills and money in the house.

I do everything online. I have one place that all my bills are kept on line...through my bank. I can just open it and see what is due one, and one click and it's paid. Pretty easy.

I manage ALL the money here, but we only use our checking account for bills, I deposit ONLy what we need and we pay the bills with it, then we use cash for everything else

I handle our finances.  The checkbook would be a mess if my DH took care of it.
