in most of our fights, my husband just manages to find a way to remind me that it's his money which I spend, when we argue he just keeps reminding me that he did that and this for me, like taking us to a family vacation! buying furniture for the house! hiring a cleaner to help around the house!!
he is financially able to do all that, that's why I quit my job to raise our child.
I really cannot put up with that anymore, each time he mentions that, he pushes me away more and more, I cannot take it anymore.
I'm seriously thinking of separating from him, I just cannot take his insults anymore. He take decisions for our family all by himself and just surprise with them, when I try to argue, he says that he's entitles to as he's paying for everything!!!
what would you do?

Before I would talk to a lawyer, I would suggest counseling. Not in just relationship counseling but also in financial counseling. There is a great program out there called "Financial Peace University" by Dave Ramsey. There is also a group of Dave Ramsey followers here in Cafemom. I think your husband needs a wake up call that yes he does bring home the money, but your full time job of taking care of his children and your home and your husband is worth money, too. I think there is a way to make him understand without tearing apart your family. Check out the group here on Cafemom and ask this question there. Good luck and keep us posted.
