I am recently married to the man of my dreams and my first love. I have been very successful in my career and have my finances set. I use a money program and know where my money goes and how much will be needed for upcoming bills. He on the other hand has his pension going towards child support and his current job doesn't pay him much. Also, he is starting fresh financially due to his divorce and him being deployed the last nine years of his military career. His ex filed for bankruptcy prior to their divorce and left him owing the creditors.
Long story short, we were short on funds and we had agreed previously, we would not pull money out of his pre approved loan. With my tax return we paid off that loan that he had prior to me. Today I found out he pulled money out of the loan, only $100 but the only reason I found out was I was looking over his shoulder as he was doing entrees into the money program.
I am set to retire in four years at the age of fifty. I have worked hard and saved so I am able to do this. He promised not to do it again. I'm not sure what to do.
Right now the bills come out of my checking account. I make more then he and the money he makes we spend on everyday things including dining out, movies, daily expenses. He's also a junk food junkie. I noticed everyday this past week he eats out spending an average of $15 at fast food restaurants. This is crazy because he packs both our lunches in the morning!
I'm thinking of just giving him $100 a week and he could do what he wants. Not sure what to do...any suggestions?
