Does she who makes the money make the rules?

If you respect your partner, then no.

It seems like the easy way to do things, she puts the zeroes in the bank account, so she gets to decide how it’s spent, but that’s going to breed a lot of resentment in your relationship.

Flash back to the fifties and think of all those women who didn’t have a say in all of the matters of the house because they didn’t contribute to the bank account, and well … because they were women. Didn’t we storm out of the kitchen and burn our bras in an attempt to banish this type of thinking?

The general idea behind partnership and marriage is an equal blending of lives. Both share in the responsibilities of the household in whatever way best serves the family, and both have a say in the direction of their lives. It’s important to remember that money isn’t the only way to contribute to your relationship, and as long as the contribution is equal, so should the say in familial decisions.
