How should I confront my Fiance about a Large amount of money he spent behind my back?
Posted on: 31 Jan 2018

 Almost embarrassed to say but he has spent over 600$ on a stupid game on his phone. I knew he had maybe spent around a 100$ since he started playing it a few months ago (was led to believe he does about 10$ a month and two diff 30$ membership fees) but checked purchases today and it's so much more than that. I'm so mad because I worked 2 jobs and penny pinch 24-7. Were right in the line with being broke after groceries and bills every month.  Then I find this out..a few months it was 99.99$ at once + some. I almost felt sick, an apology just will not even touch it this time. We have kids also , no gov assistance nothing. We def could have used that $ for groceries ANYTHING:( feel very betrayed. He knows I know but ive avoided him all day cause I'm so mad I'll say something crazy lol

					I understand you also me has happened that I invested money in games that in the end give me nothing, I think you should talk to him and tell him everything you feel without offending, I think if they are a couple should talk about it , especially in matters of home finances that is something so important today

					Explain to him that you both are a team and that when living together it’s best to both know where the money goes so that there is no issues. Talk to him about it

					Yes you need to confront him ASAP. If your living paycheck to paycheck, you need to let him know that the excessive spending has to stop. Believe me I would have been upset if my husband did that and wouldn't hesitate to confront him about it. You need to nib this in the bud and soon.

					You need to say something ASAP , does he work ? Tell him he needs to manage his money better and at the end of the month if there is money left over he can spend some on games, def not $600 maybe $10/$20, and if he doesn’t work tell him he has no right to spend money you work your ass off for and tell him he needs to go get a job even if it’s McDonald’s or anything

				He was employed with General Electric for 15 years but had a really bad car accident and has been disabled for the last 9 years though. He brings home a check, so it's not that he doesn't contribute. But even if it was all his $ the amount he spent floored me. I totally agree that 10-20$ a month after bills is fine and understandable. I tried not fussing about him playing it and spending very small amounts cause I feel bad he is stuck in the house all day. Its just the amount he has spent (that I was never told amount, just assumed he knew better) is ridiculous.
