Sick of my Mooching Husband
Please help!!! My husband of 15 years lost his job 10 years ago and refused to look for another job! He reluctantly went to work for a non-profit 2 years ago and keeps reminding me that he’s “doing it for me and he’s not happy about it”! Our money problems started when we got married and he realized that I made more money than he did. He stopped helping with the bills and ran up $40,000 in debt. He was sued two times and I got garnished because we live in a community property state. I finally had to file for bankruptcy because he was getting sued for a third time. I’m out of bankruptcy and I rebuilt my credit and started saving money. Now he’s mad because he realized that I have bank accounts that he didn’t know about and doesn’t have access to. He thought I only had our joint account, which I don’t put any money in because he’ll just spend it! I’m trying to save for our kids college and retirement. I have been blessed to have my dream job for the past 5 years and have a comfortable 6 figure salary. He had no idea how much money I made until last week. He was upset because he thought we should get a big tax refund, but we owe the IRS. Now he’s texting and calling me throughout the day asking for money and I’m pretty sure he’s quit his job. I know I make more than enough, but it’s the fact that he now acts like I’m supposed to take care of him! I do love my husband, but he is on my last nerve right now. Am I wrong not to give him any money and insist that he work and help out with the bills?
