I agree with a lot of the comments made by others
Marriage is a partnership - I think people should discuss  how finance / money will be managed and agree on goals and roles.  

It depends - on the people, their skills, age, trust and a lot of other factors like are there other responsibilities and liabilities (dependant children and or adults etc.)

I have seen cases where it was the woman that had the gambling and or drinking problem and others where it was the man. Putting those problems aside they were nice people, dealing with a situation like that up front while showing each other respect, might prevent ruining an otherwise happy marriage.  I can understand reasons for a lot of approaches to money management that can work, but to me the important factor is mutual respect and agreement is more important than if the man, the woman or both manage the money.

A lot of marriage councilors recommend prenuptial agreements.  They say while the agreements can be perceived as disrespectful and hurtful by a lot of people they can help lay the foundation of a successful marriage.   One case where a prenuptial agreement is strongly recommended is if either or both the people entering marriage have children, to ensure the children's rights or needs are protected should they be survived by the other.
