My Mom used to hide money from my Dad. She said anytime she had money he would ask a million questions on where she got it and why she needed it. in the mid 70's she got her drivers license and bought herself a car. He was mad about it but she had a job of her own at that point and told him she could do what she wanted with her money and was sick of walking 5 miles each way to work.

He was never happy that she felt the need to have a job but she didn't like having to have explain and justify anything she wanted.

He was a bit controlling and had other issues. I understand he sounds like a big jerk but he did love my Mom very much. He got better as time went on and took really good care of her when she got sick even though by then they were separated for many years.
