Okay so I had an argument the other night with my df. Before we met I was a single mom of a 8 month old and a 3 1/2 year old girls. The reason I was single was I lost my husband to a car accident while I was 5 months pregnant and had a 2 year old. So I received survivors social security for me and my two girls. I have also always been a stay at home mom since my first daughter was born.
So he knew this when we first met that I was a stay at home mom. Well he started a new job about a year ago and it caused us to move 2,450 miles away from home and family. His work pays for our $2000 a month rent since we are out of state and he makes around $8000 a month. I also get SS so we are not hurting for money. All we have is a car note, insurance, cell phone, cable bill, and food to pay for. But he wanted to tell me that I don't help contribute but yet I pay for the car note, cell phone, and insurance, and cable bill (for his mother since its at our house in the other state. I couldnt shut it off since we are in contract and its only $100 a month) and every now and then I might ask him to help pay the car insurance or cell phone bill. Not to mention I also cook, clean, and take care of the kids but yet im not contributing!!
How should I approach him about this. Everytime I want to talk about something he doesnt because he doesnt like to argue. I feel like im not being appreciated :(
