Hi lovely INTPs,
I have a question. My husband and I are expecting our first baby in September. Right now, we are pretty much living paycheck to paycheck, not saving anything. It's been this way for a long time. But for the next few months, my husband's work schedule is being drastically reduced to 10 hours a week, while I will remain full time. After we have the baby, he will be back to working full time again but I will be cut to part time so I can take care of the baby.
I am worried that we are not going to have enough money in the next few months. I mentioned this to him many times about how we are not saving any money and always am met with silence or a look of indifference. Today I expressed concern to him that he will only be working 10 hours a week this summer. Again, he falls silent and doesn't even acknowledge that I said anything. I feel like just by pointing it out, he thinks I am nagging him. But we need to make more money now to be able to pay for this baby! I am already working full time and am 6 months pregnant, so I don't think it's my responsibility to figure out how to make more. I don't know how to get him to understand that he needs to get second job for the summer or find a way to make more cash so that we can pay for this baby!
He is taking one online class this summer, so it's not like he is busy doing a bunch of other things. And he is fully capable and healthy, not to mention extremely intelligent and a quick learner. He would be good at anything he tried to do.
Help? What do I say to him? I feel like it is falling on deaf ears.
