Constant arguments about every 3-6 months. Used to be after the kids went to bed but now (that they are old enough to understand) it is with them in the room. When she controlled the finances I was constantly questioned and ridiculed for any purchase that could have and should have been spent for the family. She has stolen my debit card from my wallet and/or reported it lost or stolen without notice on numerous occasions. Now that I control the finances, she resents the loss of control, and accuses me of spending frivolously even without seeing the balance history. I choose not to feed inter her insulting emasculating argumentative commentary and leave the room or house until matters can cool down, because no solution was going to be reached at that juncture, for the which I am accused of abandonment of my family. Since she is the oldest of five siblings and I am an only child she constantly refers to me as a spoiled kid with no problems or responsibilities who was never ready for marriage or kids. I am addressed as a worthless husband and insinuated to be a deadbeat dad, now in front of the children. I have been slapped repeatedly and told I deserve it....
