My mother did (my dad died not knowing how much money he had in his various accounts or how much money they had together but that's because he was largely uninterested and he trusted her).

In my brother's couple, he does especially after SIL's stroke.

When I was living with my SO, we split the financial responsibilities between us and each paid what they were supposed to pay.
