Can you make a couple (or more) of budgets for him to choose from? That way he still has input without spending all his home time writing them up? Do you not speak to him while he’s OOT? You can start with the basics – things that must be paid every month; those aren’t negotiable expenditures. The extra stuff is where you will need to negotiate the details. Nothing is hopeless if both of you are willing to work on it. Good luck – Yolonda
Where to start?
There is NO way my husband is going to sit down and do the budget with me.
Partially because he is only home for 8 days a month, and partially because paper looks good until something is needed.
Is it hopeless?
Who wants to get things in order without sneaking money into the savings!
