How many of you dread, and I mean dread, speaking to your husbands about $. For me, this is the absolute worst conversation to have with him. He works about 90 hours per week so most of the responsibility of the house and making sure bills are paid on time is up to me. I would rather have a root canal without anesthesia than have these conversations with him.Answer Question

Do you work?
If he works and give you the responsibility to pay the bills then I would say you are lucky alot of men just give their wives a certain amount and they keep the money. Since they feel they earned so I would not be complaining love ur hubby he sounds like a great guy.
Just try not to talk to him about money.It is not worth sometimes if u love this man talk about something else. Money is the #1 problem in divorce. GL

I used to hate it. My husband would sulk if he could not do what he wanted. I got sick of paying bills late so he could golf or go to movies three times a week. I handed him the bills, checkbook and budget. He took over the bills for 6 months. Most things were paid late and if someone called looking for a payment I handed him the phone. He apologized to me and I took it back over. He realized just because he is the only one working the money is family money and needs to be spent wisely.
It has been several years since this time. Since he curbed his spending we were able to pay off all debt and have savings. He makes more money so now he can do what he wants within reason. He finally grew up when he realized what it took to run a house. Some men never get that some women don't either. I am glad mine did I could never be married to a child I could not discuss money with.
