The Bible does not specifically address the handling of money in a marriage, but the principles regarding the relationship dynamics between the husband and wife touch on all aspects of the marriage...

The Bible does speak to marriage and finances.

First, it speaks about
saving money:
(Proverbs 6:6-8
Proverbs 13:11
1 Timothy 5:8)
1 Timothy 5:8 ESV 
But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 

Then, lending money:
(Psalm 37:21
Psalm 112:5
Proverbs 22:7
Matthew 5:42
Luke 6:35)

Proverbs 22:7 ESV 
The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender. 

And finally stewarding money:
(Deuteronomy 8:18
Psalm 24:1
Luke 16:10-11
1 Corinthians 4:2)

Luke 16:11 ESV 
If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches?
