My husband brings home 5k a month and not only are we ALWAYS negative in the bank, half are bills don't get paid. Sadly we don't even have many. Rent, utilities, cell phones, and car insurance.

He thinks it's because I spend to much and I think it's because he spends to much.

I sure as hell am NOT going to cut down on spending if he doesn't. I deserve to get things I want too.

    60k is a joke in my area if you want to live comfortably

    At the risk of stating the obvious - you need to budget.

    Sounds like y'all need to sit down and do a monthly budget. Ge your last months bank statement and high light purchases from his card in one color and yours in another and add up the totals minus bills paid and groceries Then you will know who spends too much
