i needed to buy new spectacles (i cannot drive without them) I asked my husband if he would lend me some £ so i could buy them. (I DID NOT want designer/expensive ones) He said he didnt think he had any £ left to help me out. So i had to get a payday loan. ( i do not normally get loans , cannot stand oweing £) I told him what i had done, and he wasnt bothered.That evening he went out and brought his 21 year old daughter (who has her own home and fiance that works) a brand new vacum cleaner! I feel so hurt that he claimed he could not help me, his wife but without hesitation went straight out and brought a vacum cleaner. I confronted him, he got very angry and said his children will always come before me.
JUST WANTED TO ADD- I WORK FULL TIME AND HAVE MY OWN BANK ACCOUNT, I NEVER USUALLY ASK HIM FOR £ BUT THIS MONTH £ HAS BEEN TIGHT>Answer Question

That's just very sad. Eyeglasses are a necessity, a vacuum can wait. I think you should start putting some of your money that you make working on the side for you only. Let him pay more of the monthly bills. When he asks you for the money then tell him "If you can't help & provide for me then I need to help & provide for myself". Open your own bank account under your name only. So sorry you have to deal with this. He is wrong! I would also tell his Daughter nicely that you are happy she got a new vacuum instead of him helping to buy you glasses. Let her know!
