I like @KashmirFlower response. Give an estimated amount to run the house and the rest keep it as your savings. BUT, do it slowly so that you do not ruffle any feathers. COntinue to give account and say, Dad, XX is what I earned this month, I am giving you YY for houesehold expenses. Rest I am saving for kid's education, unexpected expenses etc. Invest it somewhere, open a separate bank account. I am assuming that your H earns more than you. So he contributes more. Say you get a raise or a bonus, put that in your account. As time passes and other issues take center-stage, people tend to not go into much details on how much you earn and how much you contributed so long as the house is run smoothly.
