I think if a woman is financially dependent on her husband it could resolve in a lot of problems. I feel that it is treating a woman like a child- giving your wife an allowance or pocket money like you do you kid. I think that a woman should earn her own money so she does not have to be given a budget on how much she should spend. But if you are a housewife, you don't really earn any money so i guess you'd have to rely on your working husband for money.
In my eyes, when or if i get married, i would in no way rely on my husband for money and he would have to power to take that money away from me. I would go out to work an earn my own money.
