Are you marrying a husband or you are controlling a son? -_-

To try the above, you first need to try to find a husband that is willing to agree to it. Good luck! *Bless the poor soul who really kena such arrangement*  :(

don't see the problem. your expenses should be fixed and getting an allowance just keeps you from overspending. its not like i'm going to take the money to buy branded bags.

If your hubby does that to you, how would you feel? Some couples may be ok with such arrangement some does not.

I am in the camp that believes in freedom even as a married couple as well as trust. I would have preferred it to be 50% of both sides of the salary goes into a joint account to pay of debts and bills and expenses and couple savings etc.

The balance 50% is up to each side to use it however they deemed fit. For savings or for self pampering or even using it to buy a surprise gift for the other half.

No right or wrong method la. Is a couple based decision. I just feel that our ways are different and it kinda restricts the husband  :(

Seldom practised in Singapore.  Most couples use 3 pots arrangement. Meaning each person has their own personal savings account,  and there is a joint account for family expenses.

And one more secret one that only the wife knows of.

those of you who have own private accounts and a joint account, how much percentage of your salary do you contribute a month to the joint account? My current arrangement is 25% of salary though...

My friend's wife controls his allowance. He gets 10 bucks daily and additional would need approval from his wife. Why he does that, I have no clues. But I often hear him rant but do nothing about it. If it is about him anyhow spending, before he gotten married, he is already thrifty type. Anyway, guess he should be very cash rich now since every month his expense is cap at 300 when his monthly income is some 200 grand.
Make the choice right, not making right choices.

Doesn't look like it from the k-dramas though. The hubby always seem so controlling.

japan, korea and some part of china, 100% of husband's salary is given to the wife (mostly doesnt work). in turn the wife will give the husband allowance, and rest she will spend on the household...

in singapore, most of the couples is working, so i think this culture abit redundant...
