The Question Club
My husband and I have one high credit card (about $2,000.00) and one small (about $200.00). We also have student loans and a car we are paying off.|
A year ago we decided to put the bulk of our taxes this year toward our high credit card bill. The bank is out of the way, we have a hard time paying on time, and the interest rate is terrible. Even though we pay much more than the minimum every two weeks, it will still be VERY hard to pay off without getting a large sum of money. So all year I am stoked to pay half of it off with our taxes.
To make a long story short, my husband went ahead and paid only 200.00 toward the high credit card and the rest on other things. Without letting me know. Or discussing it with me. Or letting me know anything was changed at all. or saying, "Hey Wife, the plan we have had for the past year? Not happening." We cant get ahead much further in life without paying it off.
I tried to calmly tell him how I felt and all that happened was a huge fight and him saying, "Look, that's what I DECIDED AND IM NOT CHANGING. UNLESS YOU WANT TO DO OUR FINANCES IT STAYS THIS WAY blah blah."
We are equal, 50/50. That's my money too.
TQC, what do I do?
