No, you may not. Being married does NOT, by itself, allow you to take money out of any of your spouse's bank accounts to which you are not a signor or not on the account, and in particular, would not let you take money from an LLC or corporate account. Only people on or giving signing/check writing authority may take money from bank accounts; marital status is irrelevant.
