You’re not a jerk for wanting the division of finances and labor to feel equitable, no. But from what you wrote, I can’t even tell if that’s what you want since you say you want a provider. If you want an arrangement that feels fair and more balanced, even though it may not be a 50/50 split of expenses, I think you can get there (if you can get past your resentment). If you want a partnership where your spouse is the breadwinner, I don’t think you’ll ever get there with this man.
Reading how much a cheap car costs makes me grateful to live in a walkable city.
And, I’d really love to know how one makes money watching TV. That sounds like it’d be an excellent side hustle for me.
