My DH pays the bills. He's an accountant. We both work full time and as I never used to even balance my checkbook, (which drove him nuts) it seemed to make more sense. I would ask him how things were going, he always said 'fine'. Or "We aren't where I would like to be, but we are doing ok."
Well, recently, we've been getting numerous phone calls from companies asking where their money is. I asked him about it. The response was "Oh, I've been so busy, I forgot." I asked him flat out "Do we have the money to pay it and you just forgot, or do we not have the money?" He responded that we had the money, but he just forgot.
We are so behind on everything! I am angry. I am sick to my stomach. I don't know what to do!! I want to cry.
I don't even know how to get out of this mess.

I'm really sorry, and I understand. Take some time, breathe, and then calmly sit down with your husband and make him show you everything - the bills, the bank account statements,etc. Call the companies, and come up with a plan. Most companies will work with you.
