some nerve, men.........

So a male bf of my dh is giving his opinion of how to spend money with not letting his legal wife and mother of HIS children (keep in mind, theirs') about his tax return and having or not having the money divided and it's not even discussed with her. I am not sure why men think that they are supposed to do this discussion thing without their wives. I mean it's just like she had your children .... doesn't that count?? AT least PLAN something together and utilize it as a family... when they aren't doing well to begin with sorry it's just men screw everything up all the time with their in charge lame excuses.

  • Well if he's gonna work & have the attitude of its not her $$ cuz she stays home then he should be paying her for all the services she's providing. No one should feel like they are completely reliant on someone else.

  • marriage is an equal partnership. That poor woman is allowing herself to be treated like maid, nanny and concubine.
