Savings Account

So I have posted on here before about how my husband smokes pot. It didn't bother me too much before but it really does now. The fact that he has to spend $200 a month on it. When I got my tax return back I put $500 aside for savings. Well everytime he takes money out for it he takes it from the savings and he doesn't use our bank atm so we get charged like $7! Now we barely have $100 in there. I have used some for other bills but barely any of it because it was supposed to be for saving.

I don't see the big deal about smoking pot. But in your case if he can't support his own habit maybe he needs to kick it. That is your money from your tax return. I would suggest you opening up your own account so that he can't go in there. Yes you maybe married and most married couples do have a joint account but I know lots of married couples that have their own bank account. I don't think it right that he is taking the money and spending it on pot when you can be paying the bills. Talk this over with your husband. And if he doesn't like it go get your own account and don't tell him.

If he is not smoking in the house how is he putting the child in danger? Another thing even if the paraphanalia is there I am sure he is not keeping it in the open and where the child can get at it. I know lots of parents who smoke pot and do not do it near thier children and do not leave their stuff lying around. It's common sense.

Here is a suggestion, and only a suggestion. If you are truly annoyed with your husband over him spending all the money from the savings account. Open a new account under your name only and start putting the money you are trying to save in it. And this way he can't touch it.

I would be more than a little bit annoyed if my savings account was going down because of his habit. Have you brought your concerns up to your husband yet?
