I think that if I really controlled where the money went then I would not be trying to find a compromise solution where both of us feel ok about it.

I had an idea while watching my lunch revolve in the microwave.

Instead of this discussion about rent, or utilities, or this that and the other thing, why don't you ask her to pay $5,000 per month toward the credit cards. If that's her MBA that loaded them up, then she can use her MBA to pay them down.

Yes, you'd have the full brunt of the household expenses, but you wouldn't have as much of the credit cards to be a burden.
