Tbh I'd think it a good idea, puts a lot less stress on the relationship if both parties control their own money - and hopefully at least one of the two can keep a budget... My mum didn't have a bank account of her own for a long time and I think that really curbed her independence because she had to get Dad's prior agreement for everything. I'd not want that happening either way in ours - I don't want to control his life or him to control mine...

If there's little things that are trivial but really bother you, make it easy for him to comply with your request. If you hate when the toilet paper roll is left empty, always make sure there's some in ther so be doesn't have to hunt. If you do all the laundry, ask him a couple of days in advance to scoop up his stuff. If only one person does the grocery shopping use an app or a designated spot to make a list. Those little things just help everything to smoothly.
