so last evening dh comes in and hands me a slip of paper with $4090 written on it...."whats this" "the amount i owe in back child support" (he works construction and gets laid off frequently - when he goes back we try to catch up but obviously never do) so now he wants to pay this off AND give money towards a car. WE DO NOT HAVE IT! We have 700 in savings, and a child still at home. I told him to up the support coming out of his check but he wants to take 2 paychecks a month and put on back support. He doesn't understand we live paycheck to paycheck.....he threw it in my face I had been "shoppiing" saturday. I threw the receipt at him.....i bought tp, papertowels, bread, and a candle! He never wants to know what the bills are....he doesn't even know what the house payment is even though I tell him EVERY month! I am so ready to walk......i cry as i type this....

I get it that he owes back child support, but he can't starve one family to pay off another. If he's not making enough to take care of both families he needs to look at a second job. Yelling at you for buying household necessities just shows he has no idea how finances should be run.
