My boyfriend and I have been together for 3 years. We were living in his house until August of 2011, when I found out he was going to lose it to foreclosure. I have 2 kids and was not going to wait until the bank took his house to find a new home for my kids. He said he was waiting until the end to move. So I packed up my kids and bought a house. Soon after he moved in with us. Now he is working out of town and comes home on the weekends, but he almost refuses to help with any of the financial responsibilities. I make enough to support myself and my girls, but I struggle a lot. I'm conflicted on weather I should push the issue. I receive child support from my kids father, so do I have the right to ask him to help too? He is only here on weekends and I made the choice to move and buy my own house in the first place. I have recently told him I am going to look for a second job, and he suggested places for me to apply. He didn't offer any financial help. If i ask for money to pay bills(and i never ask for money for anything but bills) i have to pay him back as soon as i get my paycheck. I do believe he is a good man, and an excellent step father for my kids. How do I handle this?
