Traditionally, in Japan, Japanese women control a family's finances. When it comes to marriage, money tends to quickly become a top priority. When Julian and I got together it was clear that I had a more laid-back way of dealing with money than he did. Since I got steady job we had to deal with the spending as a couple. However, we decided that basically he takes care of our bills and a kind of control the finances because I am not good at it. However I take care of our savings for holiday,fun money and gift. He is more frugal than me so I don't interfere with my husband's personal stuff. Are you the stickler about money in your house??
