My fiance in my eyes is hard to figure out. He buys me things here and there, but mainly if I'm literally broke then he'll pay not when he knows I have money though unless I ask. We agreed that he would pay our $1000 mortgagge and I would handle the bills ($550). I work part time (20) and he works full time around 60 hours average a week. I'm finishing nursing school so I make about 18k a year. He makes 52k. I dont mind the bills we should both put into the home, but like I pay for everything around the house also from dog food, to baby diapers, to groceries on top of the $550 a month in bills and I'm preparing to purchase a new vehicle (new to me) because my car is on its last leg so soon add a car note to that $550.
I00 will cook dinner and he will take the most (sometimes I take leftovers for lunch at work to save on eating out) and anything that is left over he will eat up before I get the opportunity to. I bought like30 wings once and i told him there were wings I came home to 3 wings left. If we order pizza we order 2 but I share mines with our kids while he eats a whole one to himself. I may buy a particular food /i like for myself and then something for him, he'll eat bothor eat his up and share the one I prefer between the kids and himself. I buy a gallon of orange juice for him and the kids its gone in two days and the kids barely see a drop.
I'm becoming annoyed. I hate a empty fridge but I'm going broke paying all this money for groceries that it seems like no one enjoys but him. And then if he thinks somethings old, he'll just toss it in the garbage without asking me, when Im the one who buys everything. He's not a large man he's 5'9 175 pounds, but his appetite is killing me. I consider him and buy dinner on my way home. He NEVER does it.He'll eat out with friends at work and come home and say Im not hungry and go to bed while I have to cook for myself and the kids. Is this something that can become a big issue or am I over exxagerating.
Im considering asking him to help out on buying the groceries. He likes welch's and expensive brand foods which I do as well, but I'm the one forking out the extra bucks for the higher quality. I see nothing wrong with maybe splitting the grocery cost so I have a red cent at the end of the month to maybe get my hair washed.

And you are still with this guy? Selfish bastard. do not ask. Tell him. You will start helping with the food bill. if he refuses, stop buying the expensive food. Buy the cheap food. If he complains. Say. You have money, buy it your self.
