When you get your paycheck, it's yours, but most married couples do put their salaries together in a joint bank account, to pay household expenses.

Married couples do each own half of everything in the home, bought together, but if you buy something for yourself and do not want to share it with your spouse, that's your choice.

If you can supply more details about a specific incident or situation that happened between you and your spouse, I will try to help further.

Hello again, and thanks for your reply.

There is no law that says you must give your wife a certain amount from your paycheck, if you are currently married.
