Do you and your husband keep separate finances?

I'm meeting more and more couples who have kids that keep separate bank accounts. How does it work? Who pays for what? What do the kids think?

My husband is not good with money so he is not on the account and he doesn't have an account of his own. I give him money everyday and all the bills get paid out of my account. Before we were married and just living together he paid rent and I paid everything else.

My Husband and I have separate accounts but I have a card to his as well as mine. Because I was a SAHM for ages the rent comes out of his account but I pay for daycare and groceries. When the bills come in it depends on how much is in what account as to who pays. The money is still concidered "ours" even though it's separate.

When we got together it was just easier to keep our own accounts. The kids have no idea about our finances so they have no opinion.
