My husband does not know the word OURs, US, or WE

I'm so tired to feeling like I"m not a part of this marriage. I stay at home with the kids and I homeschooled them for 4 years. He would never leave me money when he would go to work. One time our daughter got sick and I had no money to take her to the Doctor.
I applied for a credit card to use for these emergencies, unfortunetly now I'm just about bankrupt. He says since I m not working and didn't pay the mortgage, then our house is only His because I didn't contribulte. Even though he had made me quit my job to stay home with the kids and he said he would pay for the bills. He now refers to everything as "HIS". THe house, the insurance, the kids, the cars. He says I own Nothing. "Ours" is not in his vocabulary. I'm old fashioned about marraige and believe that everything should be ours, including problems, feelings and decisions. He makes me like I don't even exist and I have nothing , but heart arche.

  • He sounds like a Jack A#$...sorry. Honey, grow some balls, and tell him if this isn't "OUR LIFE TOGETHER" then you don't need to be around! Seriously. Selfish is all I have to say.

  • Thank you everyone! I also want to add here, that through all the things that he says. He also tells me that I'm the selfish one.
    He has me almost brainwashed into thinking its all me!
    He turns everything around to where its all my fault. It could rain and he would make me feel like I did it.
    I'm so confused! :(

  • Prove him wrong. Divorce him and see who ends up with 1/2 or more of everything.

  • Consult an attorney, most states have legal aid. See what you can do about a divorce. Go out and get a job. Let him take care of his kids and his house....
