Unemployed & getting allowance from husband

What would you do? I ended up losing my job and my husband won't give me access to his bank account. He'll throw me a hundred here and there randomly. I admit I'm not the best with money but he knows I'm looking for a job and need some money to buy things right now. I feel like leaving when I get my job. He's treating me like a roommate, a stranger. I would never treat him like this if the tables were turned. I tell him I want $200 weekly and he acts like its a big deal. I still have bills to pay and he makes good money.

What would you do if you were me right now?

Idk, when we got married we cancelled our seperate accounts in favor of having one joint account. Now we have several joint accounts..

What are you intending to spend the money on?

The household? Or just stuff for you?

Tell him what you NEED. Get a joint bank account and tell him to transfer x amount of dollars when he gets paid.

Or, he can do all the household shopping and you sit back and relax.

As a SAHM.

I would get a job and leave.

He sounds like a tool.

He refuses to share an account with me.

I can't even imagine. His money is my money, vice versa.
