My husband refused to give me money for gas today!!
My husband of 3 years keeps telling me that marriage in America is different than in my country that we (husband & wife) are equal and he can't pay for me for anything other than room and board (sometimes food) not even gas or winter clothes for my 2 girls and that it is not his job to do any household work or cook or put the girls to sleep not even have dinner with us every night.
Note: I have been surviving on gifts from family & friends overseas from which I pay for all my & my girls activities, cell phone, food, clothing and toys etc..!!!
Note: He works 7 days a week day and night...he is a free bird never even calls when he is late!! and ALWAYS SAYS we don't have money :)

In my husband's eyes I am a Princess and I deserve to be treated like one. He gives me money for anything. In addition, he helps with the kids and does housework. We entered into the marriage as partners not as individuals.
I am concerned for you and your girls. These behaviors remind me of the behaviors my ex-husband had with me. He was very controlling and abusive to me. If you think you maybe in a Domestic Violence situation call 1-800-799-SAFE.
