  • just sit down and discuss the bills.... It's not hard to understand that the bills are $800 and we only have $700 income....

  • He is your husband, just sit down with him and tell him. I think he will understand. And he should understand it that there are other things right now with higher priority.

  • Tell him that for now, you need to delay gratification. Focus on getting the bills under control. Then you can go out and have fun. It is no fun when you are worrying about how you are going to pay for that fun.
