Extremely Expensive Wife Letting Me Pay All The Bills? Is That Fair? Should I Ask Her To Contribute More?

Postby hwertun52 » Fri Oct 06, 2017 11:29 pm

I'm starting to hit boiling point with my wife and her idea of what a Family is supposed to do.. My wife's family is very wealthy, very.... I come from a very poor backround, I grew up starving for the most part.. Not trying to gain sympathy, but to give you an example of how poor my family was, I used to go out with my mom behind grocery stores late at night when they threw their food into the dumpsters, and load up on everything with her... Fast forward to today.. I make about 100k per year, I'm married to a woman I love, she makes not so much, probably around 35k with her part time job, but that's ok... She has 2 children from her previous marriage.. I pay for everything, literally.. I pay for the mortgage, all utilities, insurance , auto payments... Recently, at the beginning of the year, my wife talked me into paying for her and my stepson's phone bill.. I use a company line at the expense of my job.. So now I have to pay out about 230 dollars for my wife and stepson's phone line.. She talked me into taking that bill because she's " too broke "? The reason why she's broke is because she spends loads of money on herself or her kids... Last Christmas she nearly made me cry when I discovered she spent loads more money on her brother and sisters gifts than she did mine... She spent about 50 dollars on me for Christmas last year, and about 250 on her brother... Another 200+ on her sister.. It's ridiculous, I feel like I'm just some human credit card... Prior to getting married, I lived a great life, I had a condo, car, had the money to travel the world, buy nice clothes ect.. Now I'm so Strapped... And all she talks about is things like " We need to go to the Beach" And, Now she's talking about her teenage son' will need a car soon.
After paying out all the bills , I have scraps to spend on myself... Is this really fair? I don't mind covering the house + utitlies.. But why can't she pay out more?.. Oh and BTW- Before we married, she lived in a very low end apartment, it was terrible, her parents paid the rent for her, she drove a old honda.. Now she thinks she is Queen B or something, acts like what I do ain't nothing. Like its expected of me to pay for everything.. Worst of all, She never gives me any credit for living a nice lifestyle.. It's always more more more more

Most marriages fail because of money problems. Insist on a budget. There is no other solution. Check out my "source" that includes a budget.

You married her what else did you expect your wife to do? Just because her family is very wealthy, very.... doesn't mean she is wealthy. She's your wife, so whatever income you have it most definitely be shared. What I don't understand is that why are you paying bills for your step children? First of all she should handle that, or have the teen work to pay for it. Unless the child is young and needed medical care or other necessities that requires your assistance then that makes more sense. Not everything should be easily handle down when they need to learn how to provide for themselves, especially for a teen... is their father not helping them financially? Well what can I say, you picked and chose and you assumed you got a good one, so now that you are complaining you must be having second thoughts.

you have your answer, thats why she married you, she didnt marry you for your company or your love or you as a person, she married you for financial security, believe me she is as unhappy as you, when you dont marry for love thats what you get, yes you feel like a human credit card because thats what you are to her, just the sad truth

I think she need serious counselling and instead of asking her to pay, counsel her to change her life style.
