  • Tell him you put it in the bank, but you really have it with you if he just wants to throw it away let him he is not going to change once they have that type of mentallity you just do what you gotta do and don't tell him shit. Everytime he gets paid take 100.00 out for whatever or save it. GL I know what you mean some people can not have money for too long in their hands they act as if the money is so hot they have to get rid of it.....lol

  • I had this problem w/ ex .. so every time I went to the grocery store, I would get $20 cash back and put the money away. Good thing I did because sure enough, he left, maxed out the credit cards and emptied the bank accounts. I had a few thousand saved by the time he did this!

  • First, I would not let him have the money if it was me. I would tell him he should of thought about eating when he blew his cash at the bar on his friends. He didn't even spend it on you. Second, I agree w/ the other advice. This is the way he is and it's not going to change. I would start hiding money. Put it in a savings acct and don't tell him. I'm thinking you will eventually get tired of living like this and want out. My ex never changed even when he was homeless it didn't get better.
