So my husband makes 400.00 a week and all our bills are like 950.00. he had initially agreed he would get 100.00 a week just to himself to do with whatever he wants which i think is fair. he says today he should get more...what do you think?

Enjoy being poor forever with his ridiculous philosophy about money.

 i think you should put it all in the bank and both get what you need/want as long as you stay within budget.

What does he need 100+ a week for?

I'd say sure, spend it however you want as long as it is on groceries, home essentials, bills, or taking me out. :)

He says because i stay home and he works he should get more. yea i understand he works and i appreciate all he does but i really think 400 a month is beyond fair

I think that's an already insane amount to get. How much are you getting and how much is in savings? I think he would be lucky to get $100 in blow money a MONTH.
