We let DH do it for a while and found that he doesn't budget the same as I do (allowing enough for groceries, gas/parking, special occasions (birthdays, etc.), incidentals, etc.), so I took over!
my DH just expects me to pay the bills. his name is on our account for our heat/gas for the house and he DELIGHTS in writing that check to pay the bills. of course, i still balance the checkbook and pay the other bills and make sure we have enough money to pay them. i think i'm going to show him how i pay bills online and watch his jaw drop
I put both because DH does the monthly budget and I do the bills and keep up with our envelope system and cash we use on hand. We both give input on what we do with our money and what its spent on every month.
I checked both. I do the bulk of the bills, though thankfully, a lot of those are on autopay which saves me a lot of time. I run certain things by DH for his input and he also researches regarding economics and we discuss stuff with each other. One thing I'd like to see us do is to sit down and go over things so we can fine tune the picture. He's willing so I just need to take the time (ha ha) to list things out and make a time with him to go over stuff.
