We are still together ( not married and its both of our first child) the whole pregnancy he wanted me to stay home as well as the first 6 months or so... I have even tried getting my old job back or another job and he doesn't want that. She is 1 year now and it feels like the past 4 or 5 months he resents me for not making money.. He uses the excuse that I dont work anytime he does something wrong like come home late from his friends or spending money I tell him we can't afford. He basically treats me like I do nothing and has said that I do nothing multiple times ( I cook clean laundry grocery shop errands etc all while taking care of a 1 year old) we are on a tight budget which I know can make things stressful but he has also had many good opportunity'sat a better ppaying job that actually has benefits for all of us that he just doesn't want to take.. I don't know how much more of this I can handle.. He is almost 30 and he is acting like he is 18..

If you want to work then go and work!
What gives him the right to say you can't work?
He is being very controlling and bordering abusive. You'll find men that control what their wives/girlfriends can and can't do tend to take it further with the emotional and mental abuse. That can be worse as you think, he's not hitting me so he's not abusive. Believe me it is abuse. I was there for 7 years and 10 years on I am still slowing building my self esteem back up.
