My husband works in another country and doesn’t send us enough money for living.
I appreciate what he does send, and I don’t want to seem ungrateful or make him feel coerced. I want him to give us what he feels is right. But how can I gently let him know that 450 USD per month is not enough to pay all expenses for his wife and child in the US? He earns about equivalent to 75K USD per year, and uses it to pay his own personal debts (not family debts) and to support some poor members of his extended family. I have a college degree, but am currently staying home with our baby, a decision my husband agrees with.
I’ve been managing to get by on little money for over a year, but am afraid I will lose my car and house, and creditors are calling every day. I’d like to help my husband to realize on his own that we need more. He’s the kind of guy who has to figure stuff out on his own to believe it. Any suggestions?
