Ok...so long story short me and my boyfriend are on the verge of bankruptcy...he lost his job and was out of work for 6 mnths when he finally got another job we had to move out of state...now we have a mortagage we cant pay for in a different state , utilities and rent at a new place ..credit card bills...car payments....and the cost of raising 2 rapidly growing children....my boyfriend has a really really bad time with money hes constantly buying things we do not need like new electronics for instance...we have no savings and have not even set one up for the kids...There are so many things that we need and cannot afford. If I buy new underwear for 25$ he flips out but he can buy a new computer when the old one worked fine...we are not married yet so he thinks I should have no say in what he does with his money but this affects me and my kids lives...I love him but I cant take much more....I try to reason him ...Tell him the kids need clothes and we have credit cards to pay off etc. he acts like he understands but now his bestfriend is getting married and he wants to take him away for a bachelor party that WE CANNOT AFFORD! I dont know what to do or say. Im losing my mind! I go to work every day with pants that I have taped because their torn and I cant afford new ones....I am sacrificing everything to feed my children and make sure they have a roof over their heads....WHAT SHOULD I DO!!!????
