I went through that and he would not let me get a job but I did because after feast or famine during the month it was time for me to take care of me and my kids so I got a job now its like I do not make as much as him but I have to work on where I am going. So I would do whatever it takes to make it easier for you and your family even if he does not understand. Going without sucks do not forget you are an adult as well capable of making choices.Use them to help your family that is what I did it only helped.

Sense he is being selfish. It is time you start being selfish to. See how he feels. Go get a job. If you can not get a job. Stop catering to his needs.
