My dh and I filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy 3 years ago. I got us in that mess because I do all the bills. I wouldn't tell him about it. Kept telling myself I would get the bills caught up until we almost lost our house. Well I have done it again and the bankruptcy has been thrown out. So we either lose the house or have to refile. The only reason I can think of why I am like this is my step dad. My mom had to show for every penny she spent and if he didn't like it she get beaten by him. I am going to counseling, but I haven't changed in this area anyway. I asked him to help me do the bills after the bankruptcy and he said he didn't have time with work. So if this you in this situation what would you do. Leave? Stay and do the bills? I am so afraid right now. We also have three kids.

I do the bills in our house hold too. I get tired of looking at all the money flowing out. My DH is the spender in the house. I am the saver. Even tho I never get to save because he spends it all. Every payday I tell him. Do not spend any money tell I have paid all the bills. We have never did any type of bankruptcy. I have always figured out a way to pay all the bills. Bitching at my DH about his spending works.
