I finally got a job.

NOW my dh is all like "oh honey, go shopping, treat yourself" Oh that makes me feel "wonderful". So when I didnt have a job, I couldnt spend HIS money on myself. Sometimes I think I should be single. Its not like my husband buys me anything anyways......

  • i feel like he cant spend money on me, like im worth nothing to him..... like his money is priceless..... I was dying sick, crying and begging him to take me to a walk in clinic, and he says "where is all this money coming from?? NOT your pockets!!!" We arent even poor, and he cant spend a dime on me. But with his ex he could buy her 100 dollar antique ceramics.... whatever!!

  • my brother in law is like that with my sister, she finally got a job and she just went shopping for some clothes and he was finally happy with her. Last time she went shopping I was with her and she asked him if he wanted to see what she got and he said" no I'm not interested" and was mad because it was "his" money, never mind they have been married for over 20 yrs

  • why are guys like that? My husband only buys me stuff if we have a function for his work. other than that. NOTHING. Yes i picked out all the furniture in the house, and we buy BIG things, but a simple rose, or something would make me sooo happy!!

  • we both work, but even if I didn't my husband would never get mad if I buy something.. your husband sounds controlling..! LEAVE HIM!

  • im with him for the kids i think.... they are his step, but their real father walked out on them, and my husband took their dad's place, and i dont want them to have to lose another father. Im a big girl, I can deal with this kind of treatment, i just need somewhere to vent about it.

  • Guys are wierd when it comes to money. I swear he still seperates our things at the check out line to see how much I spent and its always brought up jokingly later that week.
