We are two months behind on our mortgage payment, late on numerous other bills. We just cant find common ground with our approach on how to resolve this mess we are in!
We are expecting baby # 2 in May. This means after the baby is born I will be a SAHM Mon - Fri & will work weekends to help with the bills. It wont be much, but it will help.
Weve been in our house for 3 years. When we bought the house our finances were in great shape, but over the course of three years weve managed to borrow money from family, take out a home equity loan & rack up some credit card debt.
Our financial future is looking pretty gloomy! We are stuggling right now & we are both putting in 40 hour week. I cant imagine how hard it will be when I stop working full time.
I want to sell the house & rent a cheap home or apartment. At least until we can get back on our feet. My husband blows his fuse everytime I bring this up & it has been a major cause of strain in our marriage. We are not on the same page at all! For him this is not the answer, he would rather borrow money from everyone than sell the house.
Im trying to be as open minded as I can & trust him when he says we will figure out a way to make this work, but to be honest I dont see things getting better financially?
Should I stop trying to convince my husband that selling the house will make things better? He seems to get really really angry when I suggest this.
Im not writing for financial advice, but to ask for advice on how to handle this strain in our marriage. I just dont know what to do.
