We're both good with money but he likes doing budgets and bills and I can't stand dealing with that stuff.

 I would say he is.I'm getting better about saving.He needs to lighten up sometimes about money.He's almost miserly.

I would have to say me, but it could be because I keep track of the bills, so I know how much to spend in order to keep us going til next payday. Lol! We do need to save more and hoping to start that soon now that we paid off two cars.

I think he is.  He was used to live on a budget and live very "bare bones" before he met me.  I have never done a spending budget my entire life.  I'm not a ridiculous spender, however I buy what I want, when I need it without thinking twice about it.

I would say I am, but probably only slightly. I do have control of the joint account tho, but we both have personal accounts and put in money to the joint account to cover joint bills and then we have our own stuff. it's how we started out when we moved in together in 2001 and it's works VERY well for us.
