My DH and I had a fight last night about stuff that's not new for us. He was raised getting what he wants..if he saw a game that he wanted, someone would buy it for him. We are getting our return back and while I'm spending about half on new furniture(ours is literally broken), a new dryer (its running metal on metal when it spins) a new bed(again, its broken) and a car(we don't have one). He wants to get a TV and surround system for it, and a Wii, and many other things that we don't need now. Bottom line, it came down to me not working and having to get a job by June, or he's leaving. That was his ultimatum. He doesn't think that we can support our family with his military income alone. And he doesn't want to support me while I sit and play computer games(his thoughts). I don't want to go to work til my kids are all in school, and I don't want others to raise them. What should I do?

I also think a mother's place is in the home, if you can afford it. If you can't, you may have to get a job. It's a hard and sad thing. But to me it sounds more like your husband might resent you a little cause you don't work, and he does. If this is the case, more than needing money, maybe you guys should go talk to someone. IDK. That being said, if you guys have a lot of things you NEED to get with your tax money, that's what it needs to be spent on. Your husband can live with out a Wii or a big TV with surround sound.
