I really need help in what to do with our finances here. My husband
works for an insurance company and makes about $60,000 gross. I work
for a newspaper as a carrier. With tips and my income I make about
$27,000 a year. Our mortgage payment is $2318 a month. My car
payment is $535 a month. With all the bills added up it is close to
$5700 a month. My husband is only on the house and he just recently
leased the car. My credit is bad from a previous marriage that is
why everything is in his name. My husband feels because he has good
credit and can get these things I should be helping to pay them all
off with no say. We still owe $3600 on a car loan he took out to
buy a minivan. It was a personal loan not an auto loan and he
turned the car in to buy the one I’m now paying a lease of $535 a
month for along with $150 for a car we no longer have. Grrr! He
received a settlement from a previous employer for a class action
suit last year. He totally blew $38,000. He purchase a car online
and had it shipped here. He kept it 3 months and sold it for $5,000
less than what he paid for it. It just doesn’t make sense. I’m
tired of having all these expenses and can’t get him to see my side
of the problem. I’m planning on getting a second job right now to
get out of this hole but I feel like I will be in another one as
soon as this one is filled. Thank you for listening!!!
