okay i am a sahm and my husband works obviously....were married but do not shard a bank account....i just know his information and stuff like that to make purchases....he tells me that the money he earns is "OUR" money....(he tells me this when i feel guilty about wanting him to buy me something)...however i bought an item online the other day for 40 bucks and i need he had the money in his account or i wouldnt have done it...i didnt ask or tell him cus he was at work and didnt see the need to bother him, but if its my money too like he said why would i have to tell or ask him ya know..anyways it slipped my mind to tell him and i forgot about it and remembered this morning and told him and he argued with me and got mad for doing it....

He was probably mad you forgot to tell him. He has to keep track of the charges, especially when comming out of an acct. You wouldn't want an overdraft charge, which can be as high as $35.00 - $40.00 and excessive overdrafts can affect your credit. In todays economy we all have to pennypinch and giving away money for bank fees is not nessicary. Haven't we bailed them out enough?!

i think he might just be mad that you didn't tell him cuz he said its both of your guy's money so just inform him and if he still gets mad when you tell him when you do it then he's only saying it so you wont feel bad
