He doesn't check the account!! He pays a bunch of bills before he checks the $$ and leaves us $100 in a hole!!! He always feels bad and says he's sorry but he continues to do it! He just wrote a check after the card was declined....DUH!! Ahhhh I'm so pissed. He always buys things without checking, or buys stuff we don't need. I tell him to keep his receipts and I'll balance for him but he can't even do that! I can't get a separate account because we are living off his work comp and I don't make enough to pay bills out of a separate account! What do I do? Treat him like a little kid and take all checks and cards away and give him allowance?!Answer Question

I definitely don't agree with treating your husband like a child. He is not a child and he deserves respect. What we did (when my husband was doing similar things) was I sat down and told him my fears about no having money because his spending habits were out of control. I told him that I didn't want to stress out everyday and lose sleep at night because of having no money or being afraid we couldn't pay the bills. It made him see things through my eyes for once and he totally stopped (this was during the first year of our marriage-we have been married for 6 years now) now when he is going to buy something he always checks our bank account and asks me what bills we have coming up to pay. It is great now, he understands...and I didn't need to treat him like a child or anything of that nature.
