$1300?? is he kidding me?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
SO is a freaking idiot with bills and money.

I. On the other hand, am super paraniod about stuff and stay on top of everything.

He let the power get turned off in the house, again.

What's the price to get it turned back on? $1300!

Of course, he doesn't have the $$ so he expects me to pay it.

He got paid 2 weeks ago. He got a profit sharing check last week from work to the tune of $6k. He got paid today.

He makes 3x as much as I do.

How in the fuck does he not have the money????

I am trying to leave him. I can't wait to leave him.

I have to pay to have it turned on because my kids need power. But I'm so angry pissed and hurt.

Now, before anybody says anything....this is the ONLY bill he has monthly.

I pay for the cell phones, I pay the cc, I pay for the household needs and what the kids need. I pay for the car, insurance and gas.

He has 1 bill he is responsible for paying on time!

Cause he is an irresponsible child

Quoting Anonymous: If he makes 3x more than you, why do you pay most of the bills? I wouldn't want to be married to that irresponsible selfish asshat either.

Serious deja vu here. My ex was like that. I am SO much better off with him gone. My bank account has been in the black ever since. Good luck, honey.

This is ridiculous. What a douche. Is he on drugs? Wth is he blowing that much money on? Otherwise he is just keeping it and holding out bc he knows you will pay it. Not only do you deserve better, your kids do. Change the locks, pay the electric, and move on.

This is what I was thinking. He knows you want to leave so he's trying to make it difficult for you. 

I would go through every pocket, sock, box he has. If he's hiding money, he probably isn't hiding it in an account, the lawyer can find that. 

Stop paying for anything of his, like his cell phone etc. Cut back on everything you can and don't put any money in any account that he can get to. Hell, if you are leaving and don't want the house, stop paying the mortgage. (After you get your name taken off the deed like a pp said.)

And keep all the receipts and proof that you paid the bills, this is financial abuse and may help you in court.

Good Luck.

Quoting Anonymous: He is blowing it.

He bought himself a new ipad, and all the bits and pieces to go with it......

He is constantly buying electronics.

But I wouldn't be surprised if he is hiding a lot from me either.

I think he is doing.it partly as a way to control me.

Quoting Serabeth06:

....Wow. He's either hiding money from you, blowing it on something, or there's something serious going on there. o.O

Why does he only pay one bill if he makes three times more than you? I would tell him to give you more money to pay bills and pocket it

Sounds like my dad.... the only bills he has to pay is their rent and the phone bill.. and when he cant pay he calls us kids for money. Right now my sisters and i are on strict orders from our mom to not give him any money.
