Hi everyone, I just found this site. Wondering if anyone can help. My husband and I have been married for almost 13 years. Our entire time together has been a financial struggle. We have both always worked full time, we've both made advancements in our career, yet bills have always been way out of control. Early on my husband started spending money on a computer we couldn't afford, game systems, games. Our cars get run into the ground because we never have money for repairs. We've fought about this so many times, as well as about the hours he spends gaming. I think I am finally at the end of my rope however...We are in the middle of filing for Bankruptcy. I have been attending all of the meetings with the lawyer, trying to fix things while he stays home with our two children so that we don't have to bring them out on a school night. (can't really afford a sitter) Last week he listed a few of his old systems on e-bay to help support the purchase of a new one) But in the mean time his car started having some major issues. He decided that he should take my car to work and let me drive his car since he has the longest commute. We still haven't exactly figured out how we are going to pull some money together to fix it, yet he still took his e-bay money and went to the store to buy his new system! When questioned about it- he said that it was what that money was meant for! My feeling is that if he can make some money selling this stuff he should be selling it to pay some bills---fix his car! not let me drive around in it. I feel SO undervalued and exhausted form this battle. Any suggestions please?
