If you don't have his permission you are no different than any other stranger. Aside from whatever impact your intrusion has on your relationship, the consequences of your actions will likely depend on what you do with your unlawful access. Just looking is much different from stealing money, but both are unlawful.

That depends on how you define "access". If you are inquiring as to whether or not the bank will allow you to withdraw funds from an account that is solely in your husband's name and to which you have no written right of access, the bank will not allow you to make any such withdrawals from that account. If you are going through a divorce, you can perform discovery regarding those accounts, you can get access to information and bank records pertaining to those accounts through such discovery and/or through subpoenas to the bank, and you will be entitled to your community share of funds existing in those accounts as of the date of separation.
