If you are a married couple, in love, and sharing bank accounts with no real problems...
Do either one of you either ask or have to answer to "Honey, why did you take $X out of the checking account?". Or is that kind of a question just displaying doubt just looking for argument? I mean if you're married and you love and trust each other, shouldnt you just believe it was for good reason?

Honestly, if my husband takes money out he tells me when we meet up later on that day. Usually he'll bring it up, "Hey babe I took 20 out to pay my co-worker back for lunch..." And I usually respond, "Cool, I'll pay all the bills on Friday then which will leave us with 300 for a week." :) Good communication skills I think...
We have shared bank accounts, but the household "bills" account is only for our monthly expenses. If either one of us is doing anything that costs more than $100, we're supposed to let the other person know. It's not about "permission" it's about good communication and wise choices. TRUST only follows good communication and a history of wise choices...
