Ohhhhh, impolite....

Really admire your commitment! Is there any way you can trim your regular expenses so that you can manage it on your salary alone if you REALLY have to? And then count on his share only/mostly for add-ons? I know it isn't fair...

This has been an emotional thread for me to read... I keep thinking our perception of our problems is shaped by our particular circumstances. I used to have 'discussions' just like this with my DH - before the stroke. Now I'm responsible for everything on just my (modest) salary. But I made the vow, so that's that.

If you really love your DH (and it's obvious you do), and if he cares for you too, I know you will continue to work this out.

Best of luck and peace to you,
