Ugh and I hate it. We're middle class. I'm a stay at home mom. A mutual decision 10 years ago. I've handled all financial stuff for years. I've tried telling Dh for the past couple years hey we need to bring in a little more either from you or me to make sure we can afford after school activities, savings and what not bc cost of living has been going up but his pay has not and kids get expensive as they get older. He says we can afford it all bc he feels he makes a good amount.
I show him some months we're down to a couple hundred in the bank before next pay. He flips out. Demands all receipts and bank statements from the past 5 years. I don't know why 5. He says I'm stupid and we would have a ton more if I wasn't so stupid and handled money better. If I knew how money worked.
I said ok you take over, pay all bills give me what I can spend on groceries and what not. He flips out more saying it's my job and if I can't do my fucking job I can leave. Ugh over money!

He says how can I work and do what needs to be done around the house to keep him happy. He works 60 hours a week he's not caring for the house too.

Honestly, it sounds like more of a disrespect problem than a money problem. Have you considered marriage counseling?

That what I said. He said they know better and know it's different an adult to adult thing 🙄. Hello what a great example of how to treat your spouse. NOT!!
