He refuses to pay UPDATE

I'm a SAHM and my husband is my children's step father. Their bio dad isn't in the picture.

My daughter needs braces and he said he won't pay for them because she will be fine without them and since he's the only one working I don't have a say in how the money is spent.

I told him he was wrong and I would take her anyway so he pulled all the money out of our joint account and put it in his own account! I don't know what to do now.


I'm 8 months pregnant, I can't get a job right now.

As some have guessed this was a spin off of the post where the step mom refuses to pay for the abortion.

It's quite telling the difference in the responses between the two.

Yep, or at least hit up the bio dad for it.

I agree with him. Its cosmetic. If you want them for her get a job.

Do you have kids together?  Just curious. 

So you have no $$ to your name at all?  What if you got a personal loan? Would he pay it or inquire about it?

without telling you that he is acting like an ass because I'm sure you know that.  Get a job & fix your daughters teeth!

Honestly I say he's being an asshole and u don't deserve that. All I can tell u is u need to get a job b/c if he's gonna b an asshole like that then u need to get to saving ur own money for ur kids. Not tryn to b mean, truly, but I don't think that's right for him to act like that.

Well... People don't really NEED braces... It's cosmetic, and will be fine without them..

now I don't agree with him not even discussing it with you.. And his argument being, " I'm the only one who makes money, so u can say shit". Yah.. Not cool. 

PICK also don't agree with u telling him ur gonna do it whether he wants to or not.. Again, this should be a joint decision... And a LOT of money...

him taking all the money out of the joint account.. Yup, negative.. He either puts it back, or I'd be gone!

and ot that it matters, but why aren't u working?

He's an ass. 

Why do you not get child support?
