Maybe it's different when there is no joint acct.
My Dh's pay gets direct deposited into our account. So the money is there right away. As for signing cheques, the chequing acount for us is in both names, jointm so yes we both can sign off on them. DH doesn't generally write cheques unless I suggest it for what the purchase may be....so I write them all and sign etc.....We got a joint account when dating actually nearly 10 years ago and have always had it. No point to me, in having separate accounts.
