Shaykh Muhammad ibn Salih al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) stated:
The husband is obliged to expend, and that includes instances when the spouse is just teacher, and has now been stipulated that the husband enable her to carry on training. Yet he doesn’t have right to just take any such thing from her income, not half and never just about. The wage is hers, such a long time because it ended up being stipulated into the wedding agreement he must not avoid her from teaching in which he decided to that. Therefore he doesn’t have the ability to avoid her from training, in which he won’t have the ability to just just simply take any such thing from her wage; it’s hers.
But then when they got married he said: Do not teach, then in this case they should come to an agreement however they wish if it was not stipulated that he allow her to teach. As an example, he could state: i shall allow you to keep on teaching on condition me half of your salary, or two thirds, or three quarters, or one quarter, and the like, according to whatever they agree upon that you give. But if it had been stipulated (within the wedding agreement) that she may teach, in which he accepted that, then he doesn’t have the proper to avoid her and then he doesn’t have the best to just take such a thing from her income.
