You'll find a lot of strong opinions on this subject ~ IMO there isn't a universal rule that applies for all cases, and based on what you have shared about you and your spouse, I think you'll be just fine.   Some married people manage everything jointly, some don't.....

If its working for you and you have no doubts about it then props to you.  Some women live in fairy tale land that money grows on trees so naturally people are going to give you grief when they find out you share your finances.   Most couple relationships turn pretty sour when its not 50/50 on the finances
