They say that money is the most common thing for couples to fight about… I wonder, did you both know or discuss your money habits before you got married? It does seem that some couples counseling would be in order,; not sure if that’s something that you can do very well on an online forum…

There will probably be a lot of useful advice coming about how to manage debt.

The thing that jumps out at me from your post, though, is his reaction –  that he pays all of the expenses, etc. This is a problem. At least to me, it seems like there’s a feeling of inequity or stress that’s been building and found its voice right in that situation.

Even though you worked out an arrangement before, it might be worth visiting a financial counselor and drawing up a strict plan. The debt that needs to be paid off is a shared burden, I’m assuming one he wasn’t blindsided by. If there’s a document with realistic, predetermined goals, it might help head off another situation like this. It might also help you plan better for the possibility of unemployment.
