Since I don't have to answer (my wife already answered for us), I'd only like to add a few thoughts --
1. It's very important for couples to be united on spending vs. saving and money in general.
2. It's REALLY good if you both are "responsible" with money. It opens the door to all kinds of advantages (that describes us)
3. It's OK for the wife to be a bookkeeper, since the domestic resources are something most women are naturally interested in. A woman's world is the home. But she shouldn't make the big decisions or have to fight the husband to get the bills paid. He should be earning the money, directing the family, and he should certainly be the primary person WORRYING about the money/bills. He needs to be responsible for them, even if he doesn't physically cut the checks himself. That's his duty. I've known couples where the woman paid the bills *and* was the "responsible one" and the one who always worried about how the bills would be paid. That is upside-down, disordered, etc.
4. You don't want to fall into those messed-up, modern world stereotypes where the man is a big grown-up kid always wanting to play, and his wife "takes care of him" and keeps things running, usually by working at least part time herself.
Personally, I used to keep a checkbook register (remember those?) from the time I was 13. That was enough record-keeping for me, before I was married and self-employed. But today, I am on the computer enough philosophizing/discussing the Catholic Faith, managing CathInfo and my other businesses, programming (my main career), etc. I need a break from the computer!
In some hypothetical world where I didn't marry an accountant, I don't know what I'd do. Let's just say it's great that I married one. I hate numbers, math, accounting, bookkeeping, taxes, etc. I'd literally rather dig a ditch.
