It was harsh but it was the truth

My husband blows money and it's beyond ridiculous. We live pay check to pay check and there is absolutely no reason for that. We have 2 fucking bucks in our savings account and there is no excuse for that. I actually put money in our savings but he pulls it right out. I've gotten to the point that I have a secret savings account that I put money in he has no clue about. I hate being deceptive but I can't live with 2 bucks in savings.

Last night I checked the bank account and noticed he pulled out 60 bucks out of our savings account and I went off on him and told him the reason why his friends and co workers can afford boats and rvs and big huge houses is because they don't pull the shit he pulls. He was of course offended but it's the fucking truth. There is no reason we should be struggling financially. None.

Have you ever sat down with him and went over a budget? Maybe seeing it all on paper will help him.

Maybe you could develop a budget and have him stick to it?

Give him an ultimatum.
That's ridiculous, or tell him from now on you are the one handling the money since he's incapable of being smart about it.
I would hate, absolutely fucking hate to be stuck with a dude that made me feel broke and struggling.

I can relate.  I'm an asshole all the time about it and give zero fucks.  We have three kids...time to quit being a dummy with money.
