I had complications when I was pregnant and it just coincided with a family moved to another state, so I just left my job. Had babies. Raised babies. Homeschool/preschooler it. Nannied. Then the pandemic hit the same week I quit nannying to focus on my kids more.
I essentially took 7-8 years off. I mean, sometimes I was making a little money and I was full time 24/7 mom with a lot of help from my husband but the primary person here at all times. Did he hide the credit cards? No, he added me to all his accounts and got me my own cards linked to them. That’s what a partnership is.
Now I’m working FT out of the house again and we share everything. We are brutally honest with eachother but we love eachother, so there’s not meanness there.
This guys is a toad who sponged off you and now is absolutely lording it over you that he’s wrangled control from you.
