When we started our FLR, hubby agreed that I would be in full control of everything including our money. I made him have his paycheck deposited in my account and then changed all the passwords on the accounts so he can't even access it. He gets $20 a week and a credit card for emergencies. Since that time we have never been in better shape financially. We have all but one credit card paid off, more money in savings, and have money left over at the end of the month. Has anyone else experienced the same thing when the wife took over the finances? Tomorrow he will get his allowance for the week and that is all he is allowed to spend. I love being in control of the money and wondered if others have done the same.
