In the paper «Money Management and Power Relations within the Family» I concern the problem of matching between types of distribution of finance, previously studied, and types of control over finance (this notion is also referred to the responsibility for the final decision). A key purpose of this paper is to study the notion of "control over finance" and to distinguish it from the notion of «distribution of finance».The topicality of this paper concerns determination of whether there is displacement and distortion in the answers of respondents in favor of socially-accepted responses due to the fact that only one member of the household is polled. In compliance with it, the presence or absence of differences between two key concepts of this paper must be defined.Thus, the main objective of this study is considered to provide answers to the following questions:1. What is the modern typology of distribution of finance in the household?2. What is the typology of control over the finance?3. Do these typologies correspond with each other?The research is conducted on the basis of data of «Monitoring of the financial behavior of the population», executed by NRU-HSE in 2012. Provided data is based on the basis of a nationwide survey, representing the population of the Russian Federation over 18 years by sex, age, employment status and type of settlement, in which the respondent lives, as well as by some federal districts.The main result of this work is fairly strict separation of notions «the distribution of finance» and «control over the finance». It was found that respondents pretty confidently distinguish areas of management in financial matters by gender.The following research gives a perspective for the future development, because, despite of concrete solutions of the given problems, the question about existence of deviations in answers of participants is still not properly checked. Probably, the key to find the answer is in quantitative research and in deeper analysis of mechanisms of financial behavior.
