I'm having trouble with my Dh and Money...

Posted by   + Show Post

He seems to go through spurts..

Like for awhile he wont touch the money in the account. I will give him money for gas and his extras .. that's it.

Then once in a while he will just go in and take some out.. not telling me. Of course that off sents my balance, and budget.

When I ask him he will say... I'm sorry I need this or that.. and give me then the reciepts.

Ever had this happen?

my hubs is the spender and im the saver...and it's been ROUGH...good luck though...sounds like yours might still have some redeeming qualities where finances are concerned...put the acct on lockdown and use the envelope system maybe?? *hugs*

Have you thought about upping his allowance or giving him extra money?

I'm the spender sometimes and my husband has to pull the reigns.  Good thing that he does not like to spend or we would be in trouble.
