Unfortunately, you CANNOT CHANGE how he was raised.

If you want to survive a marriage with him, the person who feels the strongest will have to become the 'mean one.' Meaning, you will have to draw a line in the sand.

I raised DD22 that she ate whatever I cooked. DH worried 'oh, she'll starve,' or 'oh, she'll get sick if she doesn't eat dinner.' Bullsh*t. I said she WILL eat my dinner or she goes to bed without dinner. He would try to SNEAK her PB&J sandwiches. I INTERVENED.

It was that important to me. She went to bed without dinner if she wouldn't try at least one bite of everything I ate. Today, DD22's favorite foods are sushi, salads, and vegetables. Because she had to try everything I cooked.

You will have to be 'that person' in your marriage regarding the finances.
