I feel your pain. My fiancee likes to buy movies and play online games.

Do you work from home or just strickly a SAHM? If you work from home I might suggest that you put away some money into an account that he can't get his hands on so that way your not falling backwards when it comes to saving. Try opening a kids savings account...a few banks have special accounts clubs for kids and they interest is better with those accounts than with regular savings.

Sounds like he needs some serious help in the budget department! Try sitting down with him with all of your bills for one month and all of his pay stubs for one month and do a quick chart for him to see. Maybe that would help. Give him an "allowance" so that way he blow it on what he wants, but you can also make sure that the bills get paid and you can save a little to get your own place. If he continues, then I suggest you get a little harsher with him before you are in such a hole that it is going to take you a long time to get out of.
