I've been a stay at home mom for a year now and it is quite challenging. Times are getting hard and my husband doesn't want me to work because he pays child support for his other kids and can't afford daycare. At the same time I really can't afford to stay home because he is barely making enough to support us. He gives me money every other month, but I still buy everything for our child with my weekend job except diapers. He thinks he does everything just because he pays all the bills, which sometimes aren't even paid on time. He is in debt because he cant afford the bills and kids. I am also in debt because of medical bills, and having to put some things on credit to provide for our child. I have put my entire life on hold for a few years and sacrificed everything to please him. I don't think its fair that I only work 1 sometimes 2 days a week, take care of our child physically and financially, and also buy all of the household necessities. To top it off we have another baby on the way because he wanted more children. I really don't know what to do. Our baby is due in 3 months and we haven't bought anything because he can't afford it. This is making me depressed and I am starting to resent him. I have said that we should get a divorce but he doesn't want too and said he won't sign the papers. In his mind we are a perfect family. I dont know what to do, and I need some advice.
