Calling all women who control the money...
DH is terrible with money. Just, terrible. The only way we have managed is because I control every.last.cent. If I did not control everything, it would never work. I am ashamed when I think about all the debt and recklessness of his past.
This week he is out of town for work so instead of me getting the check direct he had it sent to him so he would have some spending money. I knew it was a bad idea but I was almost testing him... see if maybe he grew some responsibility over the last year. I said okay. Of course, instead of cashing it at a store or bank, he has a buddy of his lend him half of it in cash, hands over his check to him and is getting the rest (that we need for household bills) "tomorrow." I do not know this guy well and to me that is just such reckless foolishness.
What is it with some people that they just cannot manage a dime? Money burns a hole in his pocket and he is always willing to "help" one of his scumbag friends, so I am sure there is more to the story.
Who else controls the finances? Because they HAVE to?
