ugh! We just moved to a new area so I had to open up new bank accounts (DH was at work, so of course they were put in my name). I actually want them to be in my name because DH has screwed up 2 times and I just don't trust him. I do the finances anyhow, so what's the big deal?
So last night, it starts as a normal conversation that DH wants his name on an account so he can cash checks there (understandable). And I'm trying to figure out which account he can be on - and then he gets raging mad (literally cursing and stomping around) because he says "on principle" his name should be on ALL accounts. I really don't feel comfortable with his name on our savings, b/c right now it is Emergency savings, and there is quite a bit of money in there.
In the past 2 years, he has twice taken large sums of money and purposely not told me (once from savings account, once on the credit card). So I try and gently bring that up, and he still thinks it was perfectly okay for him to do that (not tell me about it). And that there's no reason I shouldn't trust him, unless I'm planning on leaving him and want the money all to myself (he kept sying that, WTH?
: ).What would y'all do?
Anyone else have a completely untrustworthy DH? I just mean money wise... I love DH, but just don't trust him to have easy access to that kind of money or be in charge of finances or anything.
I'm thinking open another account at a different bank and transfer the emergency savings there, and get DH in on the original savings account that will have a pidly amount of money saved for vacations or something like that. Give me wisdom here mamas! I'm completely pulling my hair out, and DH is giving me the silent treatment!
