Hi I had a fight with my husband last night. My husband is a very good man, family focused and very responsible. However, he is absolutely blind about his parents. He recently gave them 25,000 USD (10 lakhs) for some property investment. He feels that helping his parents and doing this for them is his duty. He has sent them money earlier as well to help for sister's marriage etc. Yesterday, when we were speaking with his mom she mentioned they would need 5 more lakhs and she also keeps discussing an option to send some monthly amount to them. I really lost my cool when she said that - we are in a tough financial spot, I don't have a job, got laid off. We haven't bought a home. In our banks in USA, we are in debt around $6000. And my husband doesn't say anything. He agreed to send them $1000 more. I know its not a huge amount but we gave them 10 lakhs in Dec 2011. We don't have a single penny of savings for our children's college. I got very upset last night and told my DH that I'm done with this situation, I want to save what I earn and keep a fund for our own home and children. He doesn't say anything to anything, he's always quiet. Not a single word. I told him that he broke my heart and did not fullfill the promises he made to me when we got married. I know helping out parents is considered a very positive deed. But what about us. Part of the money that he sends is also mine and I always stand by him on his decisions. But now its bothering me and I have told him many times. Another problem we have is that there's no love or romance in our marriage whatsoever. He never compliments me or notices or takes me out or gives me a card or anything. I ask him many times if he likes me, loves me. And its his trademark silence. Our marriage is all about bills, kids and household chores. I wonder if this is what life is, don't I deserve to be loved? I'm losing confidence in myself and beginning to feel suicidal. The only thing good in my life is my children. I love spending time with them and they just pick me up instantly. They are my only reason to live.
