Re: My husband is mad at me, please help!
Thanks so much! I really needed to hear that. I was talking to a friend and now I realize that I'm actually being a little too much of a pushover about all this. I'm in the military, going through training right now, and I pay ALL the bills. I even give him money to buy things he might need or want (an allowance, I guess). He isn't working right now, he's going to a technical school, so he isn't bringing in any income of his own right now until he gets his grant for school. He's a wonderful man. But I understand now that I have to put my foot down about this kind of thing. I love him with all my heart, and I was ignorant to think I could have a long, happy marriage by being such a passive person (I hate arguing, especially with the person I love, especially about money). Maybe it's time to tell him that I AM working hard for this money, that I can do what I want with it (especially since the bills are getting paid still), and he should try to swallow his pride and get a job because a relationship is 50/50 (not 75/25) and he should bring in at least enough money to pay the electric bill.
... What do you think?
