  • I can't wait to see the answers! my husband says he works hard for the money and should get to spend it when he needs it...my child support pays the bills, and it ends in 2 months so I need him to get his act together fast! I even told him how much he spends on drinking in one month and he was like " yeah so"... it is not a small amount either

  • I would form my own "pocket money" for hard times, or in case you ever decide to leave him ?

    $5, $10, $20, In a envelope some where, and keep it stocked-add to it ALWAYS.

    It is always there IF YOU NEED IT ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

  • I'd just sit him down and talk to him about how important it is for you to have a savings fund. Communication is key, even if you have to talk about it over and over before he gets it. HTH!
