$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!

you may have made life very easy for him by being so responsible, this will benefit you greatly when you do leave for good. I would keep asking him for it and still going out that door.

Mortgage comes directly out of my paycheck.

So I forget it even happens.

Quoting Caidysmom: I was wonder that as well....

Who pays the mortgage / rent?



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.

The only way to get out of the house is for one of you to buy out the other & refinance it in one person's name. Whatever you do, don't sign off on the deed unless he refinances it out of your name.

Quoting Anonymous: Mortgage is in both our names. I pay it directly out of my paycheck so I don't ever see the money.



I'm working with lawyer To figure out how to get out of the house.



Quoting Derari:

If he earns 3x you, why are you taking on so many bills? I take it the mortgage must be his then? You're lucky you are working and can care for your kids. You are already standing on your own feet. This might be the time to do what you have to for you and the kids. If you think talking will help, try that first. But if you're fighting to survive just do as you see fit.

wow, Yeah, I would definitely demand he take care of it, since he let it get shut off. Then from now on, i'd stay on top of it, and ask him to cover at least half of the bill each month. If he can't come to an agreement with you, then kick his ass out. He sounds like an idiot.
