      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!!!

      Shelley
