We are pretty tight on money...i just looked in our bank account and dh was out wasting money..he went to starbucks, mcdonalds, and red robin today.spending $60 alone today...last weekend he got a new phone and spent close to $300 already...im pulling my hair out and want to yell at him..talking to him and sitting him down has not worked!...what would you do, if you were in this situation?...

And that is his money. He is The only one working right now. Because he is in The military he said i shouldnt work because someone needs to take care of our baby, especially with his odd Schedule sometimes or getting deployed...then wtf why isnt he helping with our financial problem..instead he is just going to put us in The hole..ughhhh

***update** I sent dh an angry text while he is at work...and he said he is going to cancel hulu,gamefly, and cable...

Honestly? If it came down to being able to pay bills and keep food on the table, I would empty the account and put everything into a private one that he doesn't have access to if he is wasting money you can't afford to spend right now.

Take his name off your account. Set another one for him, and tell him that he is responsible for his own spending money.

your dh is a fucking loser. 

make your own account and transfer all th emoney into it.  give that fucker an allowance and tell him when he can spend like abig boy he can have his own debit card like a big boy.

Red Robin?

Fuck. And I'm hungry too.


As for this- drain the money, put it in a separate account, pay the bills. Leave just enough in there monthly for him to splurge on himself based on what you CAN afford.

 Your -  checking account

 His -  Checking account

 

      This way he can only blame his-self.

My best friends ex-husband was exactly like that. They were very tight on money, and all he did was spend. There were several months he put them in the hole and she had to pay a few bills late and take the late fees to cover another bill. She eventually wound up taking his debit card away so he couldn't spend it. Talking to him never worked. It's one of several reasons he's now her ex husband.
