i dont know if this has been mentioned on this forum but... heres the scenario

the chinese husband brings home the paycheck... gives it up to the chinese wife who is in full control of the money... the husband receives a bi-monthly allowance from wife

whats up with that???

in contrast...

in US, the husband and the wife have their own separate bank accounts... along with a joint account where money is pooled to pay the bills etc...

In my family, if I work we have seperate account. If I don't work, my husband gives me some money. He has nevr brought home the paycheck, I have never asked for that
My sister does this as you described.
My brother gives some money to his wife while they have seperate account. but in the past, his wife just sometimes gave her own money to my brother.

Some of my friends once said to me:" I cannot break the 100 notes, once I get the change, I will spend it in no time."
But I just don't see any difference between the 100 notes and the change except that the 100 notes are not so convenient when you buy small goods.
